Pyware 3D Viewer allows you to take your Pyware 3D® drills anywhere! Designed for both instructors and performers, our Pyware 3D Viewer app eliminates the need to print anything.

You’ll see your drills animate the way they were intended, because Pyware 3D Viewer actually opens Pyware 3D® files! Floats, Follow-The-Leaders, and curved pathways all animate flawlessly whether you’re watching the playback animation in fluid or step-time.

Seamlessly retrieve file updates with the press of a button. View both Production Sheet and Text Box instruction information. Open drill files for any venue: football fields, gymnasiums, parade routes; if you can design it in Pyware 3D®, you can open it in Pyware 3D Viewer!

Ratings and Reviews

Good initial release


Make sure you have Pyware version 8. That's the only version that can export the mobile file. The app is pretty useful and the support staff on their Facebook page has already added some user requests to their to-do list

Dumb errors simple to correct

Geek Conductor

Cast list shows up sorted by the first digit of the number, I.E. 100 shows up before 2, and 3 shows up after 29. Irritating to search for student drill numbers out of order. Would also be much more intuitive to be able to select a cast member by tapping on him, rather than going into the menu to do so.

Very cool


I just wish I could see the setting on my iPhone 4s because they are off the screen. Please fix
