“It is quite magical to see how simply uMake works.”
Awarded 2015 iPad Pro App of the Year and Editor's Choice on the App Store, uMake lets CAD professionals and 3D modeling enthusiasts create immersive 3D content on the go. Now with features as easy sketch planes, with an intuitive sketching experience; along with 3D tools such as Pull & Push and easy complex surfaces creation; and viewing experience using Augmented Reality (AR) features - it is one of the most natural and most powerful 3D modeling and design apps available.
For the Pros out there, it all starts with a sketch. Create smooth and accurate vector based curves and surfaces using NURBS. Then batch export all of your design files to IGES, STEP, OBJ or STL file formats and continue working on other CAD and 3D Printing apps like Trimble SketchUp, Autodesk Fusion 360, SolidWorks, Procreate, Concepts, Autodesk Alias, Blender, Rhino, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator or Autodesk Maya, Autodesk 3DS Max, MeshMixer, Netfabb and more. Give even more depth to your designs with the Apple Pencil on your iPad.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app but...LAG
I am running this app on the 2017 iPad but I'm still having performance issues! What keeps happening is that my iPad CAN handle the polygons being rendered but the issue is when I go into 3-D flyover mode it has to load back in a bunch of shadows. That really bogs down my iPad and I have to wait a few seconds before I can do anything, and that's with small things! So maybe if you make it so that the shadows either or there, or they don't have to be loaded and unloaded constantly it would give the app better performance!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the kind words! You can turn off shadows from the "View" panel to improve the performance on the iPad.
Can you please write us at "email@example.com"?
It would be easier to communicate over there.
uMake Great! iOS 13 not so much.
No problems with this version. Well apart from the issues with iOS 13 that is. Which is Apples fault and not uMakes. Currently running on iOS 13.2.3 Hopefully iOS 13.3 fixes this (basically memory management and touch responsiveness).
The exporting photos bug is now fixed! I can now export at 2048x1537 on my iPad Pro 1st generation (this may be different depending on device).
Really impressed with the uMake team for getting the fix out so quickly! 5 stars!
Just a word of warming for those of you who use the “export to photo” function within the app.
It has gone from exporting photos in 2048x1537 to 1024x1024. This in on my iPad Pro first generation. It might be different for other devices.
So if you need to export at a higher resolution please hold off from updating until it is confirmed that this is a bug or a new feature going forward.
I’ve submitted a ticket from within the app and also started a new thread on the uMake forums. Will update this review when I have more information.
Update for Ver 3.0
Thanks to support, it has been confirmed a bug and an update will be out soon. In the meantime I’ve downgraded back to ver 2.12 (again thanks to support).
Developer Response ,
UPDATED (Oct 16): Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry for this bug as we found about it only after releasing the update. We're working on fixing it as soon as possible and we hope to upload a fix to it this week. We thank you for your patience and hope you could reconsider your rating. Thank you, The uMake team.UPDATED (Sep 19): Thank you for the feedback! We will take a look into simplifying the "back to file manager" and duplicate menu. We're happy you're enjoying the new color wheel. More updates are coming soon!UPDATED (Aug 20): Thank you for the suggestion and for revisiting your review, much appreciated! You can export all of your designs today to the Files app (iPad or iCloud) by tapping on "Edit" then select all the designs and then "Share" >> File Type >> 'Files'. You would have to open them before exporting. Today we released version 2.11 and I can say it's safe to update the app. If you're facing any issues, please let us know by emailing us at "firstname.lastname@example.org". Let me know if that helps.UPDATED (Aug 19): Hey! We're happy the issue was resolved for you. Both 2.9 and 2.10 work on the same server - which means you can use 2.10 safely now. That said, you're welcome to keep 2.9 until 2.11 is out. We want to apologize for the temporary inconvenience. That said, we want to assure you that your files are protected and nothing affected them during the issue we temporarily had. We would much appreciate if you could visit your review. Thank you!(Aug 18) Hello! Our apologies for this experience. Some users were affected by a server issue that has been resolved quickly after we found about it. All of your files exist and none of them was affected. Please make sure to close the app and reopen it, then try to log in again. Let us know if that works or if you need any further help at "email@example.com". We would appreciate if you could revisit your review here once this issue has been resolved. Thank you!
Kills my iPad Mini 2
I was loving this app as it has so much potential and I know I could really benefit from it in many areas but unfortunately it diminishes my battery life very quickly and that’s even when I have only this app running and nothing in the background also it lags terribly bad and crashes on me after a few extrudes or free hand shapes which is pretty bad if I can’t even do that. I was interested in going pro but if I can’t even get through the free version then I see no sense in wasting my time, effort or money. Perhaps it’s just my iPad since my iOS is up to date ect.
I would really like to use this app for my own work since I’ve seen some pretty amazing stuff come out of it in the community creations gallery and from tutorials. I’ve been following and doing the tuts which didn’t seem to give me much of an issue but when I go to create my own thing it does sadly.
Developer Response ,
Hello, thanks for your review and for listing the issues. We would love to address each of your concerns as we take our users experience quite seriously. Firstly, the iPad 2 is the oldest iPad that uMake runs on. As uMake is a 3D sketching application, it requires quite a fair amount of processing power. As models become more complex, there are more objects to render in 3D, and thus the demand for processing power increases. This can mean heavy battery usage, and as models become more complex, a slowdown in performance. This is the case with any 3D application, even running on high powered computers. As the iPad 2 features the first generation of 64bit processors that Apple made, it is working very hard to run uMake.
Going Pro: We are happy to hear you enjoyed the application so much you considered going pro, however to be clear, if you don't plan on exporting your creations out of uMake to further develop, or import work you are working on, then the free version would meet all of your creative needs.
Crashes - There are few known bugs right now with extrude along path, (especially when symmetry is on) that will cause uMake to crash. We will solve these bugs and more in future updates. We would be happy to discuss more or know more about your issues if you send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again for the review. We would love to get you up and fully running!
