TreeSketch is a fully featured interactive 3D tree modelling application for your iPad. Creating a tree is as simple as painting on the screen while watching the tree grow into your stroke. TreeSketch is powerful enough to capture a stunning variety of tree forms.

TreeSketch exports 3D models to .FBX and .OBJ so they can be used by all major rendering applications.

Best of all, its free!

What's New in Version 3.0

A number of features and parameters have been added or changed since TreeSketch version 2.0. The most important are listed below.

Model export
• In addition to iTunesConnect, models and images can be exported via Dropbox. Export options have been significantly expanded and include the obj mesh format and high resolution composite ready rendered images. Textures can now be exported with the model.

• The hybrid growth algorithm has been introduced to improve consistency between trees modeled interactively using brushing and trees grown autonomously. The original sketching and growing algorithm remains available as the “artistic” algorithm.

• Rendering has been enhanced to include shadows and scattered light. Direction of light illuminating the scene can be interactively manipulated by dragging the sun in the sky.
• Trees can carry fruit, buds and thorns. Their distribution and appearance can be controlled via a dedicated tab.

• TreeSketch 2.0 “flowcurves” have been replaced with the sketch-based tropism option to improve control of growth direction using sketching.
• TreeSketch 2.0 post-editing of branches has been improved by replacing over-sketching with multi-touch branch bending.
• Key architectural parameters can be more conveniently manipulated using specialized widgets.
• Color attributes (hue, saturation and brightness), including those of textures, can be manipulated using specialized colored sliders
• Growth and/or rendering parameters from previously saved trees can be loaded as presets for new growth.
• Brushing gestures can be visualized to illustrate the construction of the models.

Easy and fast tree creation

It doesn't take much learning to start creating trees and the app has an inbuilt library of trees. The export options allow Obj or FBX file export to Dropbox and can be easily added into Cad models. Well recommended to add detail to a CAD scene or render for added realism.

Love this App

Really great and well thought out tree construction app, with good export controls. Charge for the app, it's brilliant.

Great app

Very useful for 3d artists. Thanks!
