“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.
-- FAST LEARNING:
• Learn at your own pace - Watch tutorials that you can learn in 1-Day, 3-Days or 7-Days.
• Watch quick videos about each tool or setting.
• Don't have time to watch videos? Read about each feature from an online manual.
• Use our forum to ask any question or suggest any function that you have on your mind.
• Easy to use drawing experience. Create accurate designs using sketch plans, dimensions, snap tools and more.
• Importing SketchUp files (.SKP) from your desktop to uMake, or directly from 3D Warehoouse on Safari.
• Importing standard 3D file formats, such as: IGES, STEP, OBJ and STL.
• Pressure sensitivity controls for the Apple Pencil.
• Create mass modeling using Push & Pull, Extrude, Extrude Along a Path, Revolve and Array tools.
• Symmetry and Mirroring tools.
• Importing reference photos, such as floor plans or blueprints and working with them in uMake.
• Layers and geometry grouping.
• 250+ pre-made models to get you started.
• In-App video tutorials.
• Exporting to 3D file formats STL, OBJ, IGES & STEP and contineu your work on other apps or on your desktop.
• View your designs in Augmented Reality (AR)
• and MORE!
Go from creating basic objects in 3D to designing complex models for any industry including architecture, transportation, industrial design, jewelry design game design, and or just for fun.

Hi, The update addresses performance and stability issues. We plan to bring new features very soon, with our upcoming update! Here's what we've fixed:
- Learn tab - fixed crashes that happen when opening course videos.
- We improved the performance of surfaces created from offset lines.
- Edit Control Points - we fixed a few bugs related to connecting and disconnecting control points.
- Layers - double tapping on a layer created issues related with selecting another layer
- Fixed guidelines that didn't show up in some cases
- Pen tool - we fixed a 'Snap to Grid' bug that was interrupting closing shapes
- Fixed a few bugs related to object selection
As always, we're here to listen to your feedback. If you have a suggestion or found a bug, please let us know at "email@example.com" or at our forum.

Ratings and Reviews
Maybe just not a good fit...
I’ve been using UMake for a small number of drawings and I’m just starting to get the hang of it. Overall, it’s fun to use (especially the AR feature) even with some of its limitations compare to CAD programs. It seems like UMake is making progress in addressing these shortcoming. Unfortunately with their new subscription model, this may no longer be the right product for someone like me, which may be representative of a lot of UMake users. That is, I tend to dabble with the product. I would love to continue to get more into it and its advanced features, and maybe someday, use it on a very regular basis where the subscription model would make sense. But at this time and at the cost involved, UMake may not be the best choice for me. I’d be OK with something like a $1.99 per month subscription coupled with a limited number of drawings, but all the features enabled. That would encourage people like me to continue experimenting and learning and someday upgrading to a higher subscription level.

Hi DC in SCV,
Thank you for the feedback.
We need our customers' support to continue developing uMake, therefore a subscription.
If you're a hobbyist or a student, maybe our Education version would be a better fit for you with a one-time payment of $9.99 and limited set of features. Search for 'uMake Education' to get this type of version.
Would be happy to continue the conversation through email. You can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to discuss further.
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 email@example.com. Thanks again for the review. We would love to get you up and fully running!
People Can Make Unlimited One-Time Purchases
But there are a finite number of monthly bills one can pay, and people usually incur those bills in the order that they encounter them. Once they're full, they're pretty much full, and they scale way back on incurring more bills.
The software industry is some 30 years old now, and subscriptions are a relatively new thing. We know the industry can survive, and indeed thrive without them, although the App Store paradigm where everything sells at at 30% discount confounds the issue somewhat.
I have to admit that I'm not a fan of subscription software. We all try to justify it's necessity, but at the end of the day, we know it's a gimmick that's going to decline as soon as the next recession hits.
That's my take on the business model. The software itself, however, is excellent. If you are not averse to subscriptions, this is a good candidate for it, as the software is high-quality and the support is very good too.
And that's what I'm rating. The program itself, not the business model, which can always change.
Nice job bringing CAD to the masses.
