Shapr3D is a professional 3D modeling software created exclusively for the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil. It is the only truly mobile CAD app – a quick but precise way to create 3D models for engineering, design, 3D prints, and more.
WHO IS IT DESIGNED FOR?
The free version of the app is great for people interested in 3D printing. The pro version is targeted more towards professional users, mechanical engineers, industrial designers for initial ideation, interior designers and cad architects. It is also useful for people who are on the road, or in a meeting when you are away from the workstation. The mobility that the app provides can be a great advantage for many users who used to be stuck at their computer when it came to 3D modeling.
“Shapr3D provides the right balance of complexity and the amount of tools you have. The interface is very easy to use and the learning curve is low.” – Claas Kuhnen, Teaching industrial design at Wayne State University
Shapr3D is compatible with ALL major CAD software. You can export your works into a STL, STEP, or an IGES file. These formats are supported by all CAD applications like Solidworks, AutoCAD, Fusion360, Rhino3D, CATIA and many more. So once you create a sketch in Shapr3D, you can export these and continue the 3D design in any other tool, however you need a pro subscription to do this. You can also import CAD files and continue working on them within the app.
THE APPLE PENCIL
If you’re using your Apple Pencil, Shapr3D functions as a state-of-the art modeler, enabling you to produce designs without limitations. Without the Pencil, it runs as a lightweight, fast and portable CAD viewer to showcase and explore modeling work on the fly.
You can download the app from the App Store here for you iPad Pro:
