iPad Screenshots


Easy to learn. Easy to use. But still professional. Draw shapes, then transform them. Sketch on faces, and chamfer edges in seconds.

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.

It’s not compatible with other iPads (like Mini, Air, 2017).


Shapr3D is the only truly mobile CAD app. It offers a quick but precise way to create 3D models. It is mostly used by engineers, industrial designers, product designers, jewelry makers, 3D hobbyists, and architects.


The app was specifically created & designed for a touchscreen. From the ground up. With the easy to use interface, it takes less than 15 minutes to learn how to use the program.

FAST // Sketch like you did on paper, and have the results instantly in 3D.

COMPATIBLE // Shapr3D is compatible with ALL major CAD software, like SolidWorks, AutoCAD, Fusion360, Rhino3D, CATIA, Inventor. You can import from .STEP, .IGES, .XT files, and export to .STEP, .IGES, .XT, .STL which are compatible with other CAD solutions.

PRECISE // Your sketches and models will be perfectly measured. We support mm, cm, m, inch, and foot.

BUILT FOR PROFESSIONALS // The ultimate goal of Shapr3D is to be your 3D modeling tool of choice. To do this, we support many transformations & features. You can find the list of these tools at the bottom of this description.


Yes. To enjoy all the functions of Shapr3D, you need an Apple Pencil. Other styluses and older iPads (Mini, Air, Air2, etc) are not going to work.

If you don’t have an Apple Pencil, Shapr3D works only as a CAD viewer. You can showcase and explore models on the go, but you won’t be able to create or edit designs.

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.

Getting better but still needs some key features

This app gets 4 stars because there is really nothing to compare it to on the iPad Pro (onShape is the closest and better for now but it's quite expensive for pro use and cloud based).

I've been really excited about this app since it debuted and have been a pro member the whole time... even though I really haven't been able to get much use out of this... yet, just wanted to support what these guys are trying to do. Each update bring incremental improvements but the last update did seem to greatly enhance the stability of things.

There are several things missing compared to a desktop app, but that's okay as long as things keep getting added/improved. One thing that I hope is in the short list is the ability to make patterns. If this feature is here, I can't seem to find it.

Things will bog down if there are many sketch entities with many constraints. So much so that you can't draw circles/arcs because the UI isn't keeping up to recognize the gesture I'm guessing.

Small objects can be hard to work with because you have to do a bunch of zoom gestures to work in detail on small objects.

Hi - thank you very much for your feedback and support :) We are continuously improving our app and indeed the patterning tool is something we have on our short term roadmap. Improving the sketching experience is something that is top priority right now, we have released an update not so long ago where we added automatic constraint support and we have improved the constraints engine considerably. Stay tuned for updates to come!

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.
