forger is a digital sculpting application for the artist who wants to be able to sculpt anywhere. forger lets you sculpt while you are on the train, sitting on the couch, or waiting in a queue.
Featuring an intuitive multitouch interface, several deformation brushes, the ability to import/export OBJ files, and many other awesome features, now thanks to forger you can sketch out ideas anywhere you go.
Save your scenes to the internal scene format and use the popular OBJ file format to import or export new models or basemeshes. Dropbox integration allows you to open and save the models you have on the cloud!
With many brushes to choose from; standard, clay, flatten, move, smooth, pinch, inflate, crease, scrape, layer and mask. You will always find the one you need for the right task, each brush has an alternate function that does even more!
Increase the resolution of the model by multiplying the number of faces by four, whilst keeping the previous (coarser) version of the mesh as another sublevel. Step back and forth between levels to do big changes or work on details. Rebuild subdivision levels on previously subdivided meshes if importing from another software and carry on in forger!
Partial mesh visibility
Hiding parts of the model you are working on will help you focus on your sculpture, and getting to hard to reach areas.
Control the areas your brushes can afect by masking them. Masking will make sculpting in delicate areas easier.
Work in a non destructive manner by creating layers per sublevel for quick concepting and adjusting their intensities for different results.
Advanced stylus support
Applying different pressure on the device with the supported stylus will have different effect on the mesh. Currently supported stylus are: Wacom Creative Stylus, Pogo Connect and JaJa Stylus. Use their buttons as navigation shortcuts (orbit/pan).
