“Shapr3D may be the easiest-to-use MCAD program you will ever try.” - engineering.com

“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

Shapr3D is the only truly mobile CAD app. It offers a quick but precise way to create 3D models. Fueled by the same geometric modeling engine as Solidworks, we bring you the power of MCAD and the ease of Sketchup, right on your iPad. Solid modeling made easy.

Perfect for engineers, industrial designers, jewelry makers, 3D hobbyists, architects. Regardless of your level of experience, you will find Shapr3D easy to learn and adapt!

Shapr3D is a freemium app. All modeling tools are included in the free app, pay only when you need to transfer your models to other software.

Shapr3D is compatible with all iPads supporting Apple Pencil: iPad 2018, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Beyond impressive for an iPad app


When I got this app, I knew next to nothing about designing anything in 3D. I "played" with the free version on and off for a few weeks and watched the included videos and I was able to draw a rather complex object (8020 tubing) after one Saturday afternoon. The one day a couple months ago I got an email from the developers stating that prices were going up (considerably) for the yearly subscription and I still had time to sign up for the $150ish price before hand. So I bit the bullet and got the cheaper subscription price and I’m happy that I did. I’ve recently started a new job that gives me the ability to print 3D objects on a number of printers for actual parts used on test benches we build for the auto industry. We also just got a new Tormach CNC mill and I’m using Shapr3D to design a jig used to hold a number of parts. I doubt I’ll use the drawing on the actual CNC mill and it’s more of a proof of concept project that I’ll let our real designers draw up working drawings to send out to machinists. The point is, if you want to learn about 3D modeling, you won’t be disappointed with this app. The price is steep for a newbie like me, but it’s a great teaching tool and still powerfull enough for real designers as well. I look forward to upcoming improvements but I don’t know enough yet to know what needs improving.

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.

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.

Reimagines 3D modeling in an exciting way!


Hands down, the best 3D modeling tool on the App Store! I started building in 3D almost 20 years ago in 3d studio for DOS times and since then worked in product design, injection molding and production of consumer goods. 3D has always been hard to make, modeling tools are so hard to learn and it usually takes years to become professional in 3dsmax, Maya, Solidworks, Rhino, and all CAD software. Not with this one!

It took me almost 5 minutes to design quite complex surfaces that usually took like two weeks with the new software. Shapr3D rocks! Your approach to touch and pencil is very well thought and really easy to understand.

My only concern is pricing, it just needs more professional tools for that price (like more precise curves, vector import, projection, etc). I can only imagine how hard it was to reinvent the whole process of modeling in 3D for the touch and pencil and I hope developers won’t stop on that, advance their software and will listen to users’ feeback (I saw too much software went to the oblivion because developers had their own agenda never based on what real target users want).

Rock on guys! Excited to see what’s next.
