Sketch 3D is a tool for designing 3D models from your fingertips. You could download models from others, and could also share your great designs with other users by saving models in Public space.

New feature: Support using video as model texture.
You could use video clips from Photo Album, or from Internet URL (YouTube URL not supported), and then apply it onto a model as texture map.

New feature: Capture movie from the 3D scene.
Note! If your device could not capture movie, then, could try out a smaller output resolution (by tapping the control pane). However, arbitrary output size may stop capturing prematurely.

New feature: Design 3D model animation with skeleton structure.
You could design a skeleton structure by placing bones in hierarchical relation. Attach model to the skeleton, and then moving the bones to define different poses. Each pose represented as a keyframe in the timeline view. And animation sequence is produced by playing interpolation between the keyframes.

very nice 😮 complex esp on little iphones all the instructions are there but you gotta keep asking what did i do wrong and logically learn but this is the App for 3d design built around Open Subdiv project and more, helps to know blender hierarchy type of objects ... but how does the interactive stage work?? also a support forum or email would rock maybe if someone makes some instructional object for people who never did any modeling or a video... a very nice tool ill buy it soon

Thanks for your review. The interactive stage is just for bouncing your models around, not much useful at the moment.

Great stuff here!


This is the best solution I’ve found so far, WOW! I agree that there could be better instructions, but if you’re familiar with another 3d modeling program like Maya it is not too terrible to try to figure this out, just takes more time than it should. In all, there are a lot of amazing features here, and there should be NOBODY complaining about ANYTHING, it’s FREE, people!!!! Think of how much time it took the developers to create this!

How to load model from local storage?


Not a clue anywhere, if you get stuck with this app, you are really stuck. Help...not really helpful. To clarify, the problem is that the “Help” button refers to an undefined “main menu” (putting icon here would help). Both of the helps are sketchy, the in app and the on line on website, so the app lacks discoverability. With such a complicated app, discoverability is crucial.

If you contact me directly, I’ll be happy to assist in finding and fixing these discoverability issues.

Developer Response

Thanks for your advise. The main menu icon is the one at the very corner of top-right screen, right above the "Front" button. I thought it is stylish and cool, but it is my fault because it does resemble any meaning of main menu. Sorry about that.
