“Right when you think everyone gave up on putting parametric 3D CAD software on an iPad, a small, rebellious group of software developers launches an app that puts those large, money-laden software companies to shame. “ - solidsmack.com

“The app that changed the iPad story from TOY to TOOL” - architosh.com

“Fun and powerful real 3D app. Getting better with options and support with each release. Easy to learn coming from SketchUp. Exports great to STL and others, needs to expand import options in near future. Great uses in creative workflow, urban design, architecture and 3D hobbies.” - Eldy B., App Store review

Expensive but worth it


Compared to the majority of iPad Pro apps, this one costs a lot. However, this is a truly professional app and really excellent at what it does. I use it to design parts for sci-fi works that I export and then take into ZBrush to add to character suits and such. It’s easier and faster than ZModeler for most of these tasks. I have other friend who use it more for its intended purpose in designing products, and they love it as well.
The only thing that would be even better for me is if it had an obj export option, but that isn’t a deal breaker for me.

I choose to pay the yearly subscription for this app to mainly support the development of profession design and art apps for iPad Pro. I probably make a total of 100 parts a year and for me it is worth it for the high res stl export. I wish I would have got on board when the price was a bit lower but that’s my own fault.

Developer Response

Thanks for the kind and detailed feedback! It's also nice to get a feeling of how people around the world use Shapr3D. If you ever want to share a model you created, make sure to post it on our forum: http://discourse.shapr3d.com/

We currently don't support OBJ, but it might change in the future. We see STEP, IGES and XT a good replacement for OBJ as pretty much any modeler that accepts OBJ will accept one of these formats.

By far the easiest mechanical design CAD to learn and use for non-experts.


At 10% of cost of the next lowest professional CAD I found this tool to be most intuitive and easiest to learn and use. Their on-demand tutorials is next to none.
I don’t use design CAD tools often enough and forget how to use certain functions. This is where this tool shines where an animated demonstration magically shows how that function works and in 30 seconds I am up and running again. I like to call this “lean learning”. No videos of some expert telling a long story. All other CAD tools require digging in through hrs of video and google search listening to experts hoping they eventually answer your questions and taking so long you may decide it is too hard and time consuming. My hats off to the designer.

Great tool for iPad! Very happy with it.

I have to say this app was very easy to learn and use. Within a weeks time I was able to go from knowing nothing about 3D designing to building complex models of machines I work on for a living in such detail that the 3D model itself could be used for training purposes by using the groups tab to break down individual components. The only issue I’ve experienced is some camera controls but it’s not a deal breaker. There may be better software out there, but for me the easy to learn interface and ability to do so much in the free version makes this hands down the best 3D modeling software on iPad in my opinion. Great job with this app! I will be going pro very soon.
