Ratings and Reviews
Move Tool features are finally patched in!
Prior to this update, it would take me 5x longer to make a decent looking model in this app using whatever sculpting workarounds I could muster, compared to what I could do in other desktop apps. Now that the Move Tool’s available, I’m able to crank out decent models as quickly as with similar desktop apps, minus the desktop/laptop+pen tablet clunkiness. The lack of any copy/paste and transform features is still a minus, but at least I’m able to make entire figures in a neutral T-pose and then export the figure (either as a whole or in pieces (Duplicate model, use Cut Tool)) to another modeling package for posing, welding, and finishing. The developer says the next feature coming down the pipeline is going to be Layers. If the transform tools are going to be integrated with it, that might provide me what I need to pose the model away from the generic T-poses.

Hi T.Serafica! Thanks for the long and detailed review! We've posted a little roadmap on our forum, and we'll have a Move tool by version 1.2. We're close to finished with 1.1, so it's not that far off. The code for the move tool will make import a lot easier, as well.
We hope to get you to 100% Sculptura :) cheers!
So far, so good (I guess)
Just started my first 3D art with this, and so far I like it a lot. It took a few hours to figure most of the tools out, and I am enjoying the app. There are a few changes though that I would like to point out and suggest - 1st and foremost is the document size. I wasn’t able to get halfway through my project without it say the file was too large; several times I had to resize, and I don’t know what it is doing to my project. 2nd, I feel like there should be a little bit more freedom with your art, such as easy access to color, and finer tools.
Overall, I feel like I spent my money pretty well. This app was well-made and enjoyable, and it gave me a new experience for a change.
This is what I was looking for!
I have tried other apps and struggled to get control. I always felt like I was fighting them to do what I wanted. I am still learning but within a few minutes I was roughing out my form faster than ever before. This is the app you were looking for too, I believe.
Want to sculpt quickly and intuitively with a clean non cluttered interface? I am sure there are features that i will wish it had and ones that i haven’t found yet, however right off the start this is better than any other.
The additive/ subtractive sculpting with a quick smoothing feature allows you work very fast. I am very impressed.
