“It is quite magical to see how simply uMake works.”

Awarded 2015 iPad Pro App of the Year and Editor's Choice in the App Store, uMake lets anyone create immersive 3D content on the go. Now with AR features, it is one of the easiest and most powerful 3D modeling and design apps available.

Customize and view fun 3D kits with uMake Studio, and share on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Snapchat, and other social networks in minutes. Create a fearsome (aka adorable) Mighty Monster, construct a robot with Built-A-Bot, see your name in lights or balloons with our typography text, and rule the skies with our newest Dragon kit.

Embrace your creativity and impress friends. Place 3D objects in the real world with uMake AR. You can also see what thousands of others are creating in the uMake Community. All from a beautifully simple user interface.

For the Pros out there, it all starts with a sketch. Create smooth vector based curves and surfaces using NURBS. Then batch export all of your design files and continue working on other CAD apps like Alias, Blender, Rhino, Adobe Photoshop, Fusion360, Procreate, Concepts, Illustrator or Autodesk’s Maya and 3ds Max. Give even more depth to your designs with the Apple Pencil on your iPad.

uMake Features Include:

- Auto-correct for even lines and curves
- Pressure sensitivity controls for the Apple Pencil
- Extrude and extrude along path
- Revolve surfaces using polar arrays of objects
- Symmetry and mirroring tools
- Importing reference photos or blueprints and working with them in uMake
- Layers and object grouping
- 250+ pre-made models to get you started
- In-App tutorials
- Exporting to 3D file formats OBJ, IGES & STEP
and more!

Go from creating basic objects in 3D to designing complex models for any industry including animation, game design, transportation, industrial design, and architecture or just for fun. Design your own dream house with our precision drawing tools or tap into an active community of creators who love giving constructive feedback.

Editors’ Choice

Incredibly powerful yet easy to use, uMake is simply a fantastic 3D sketching app. An intuitive interface and smart tutorials help you jump right in and start crafting highly detailed designs. Import reference photos, use live symmetry to draw quickly, and edit and export your work in a flash. Built to take full advantage of the iPad (and especially iPad Pro and Apple Pencil), it’s a perfect way to create professional-quality designs wherever you are.

Kills my iPad Mini 2

G. W. Foster

I was loving this app as it has so much potential and I know I could really benefit from it in many areas but unfortunately it diminishes my battery life very quickly and that’s even when I have only this app running and nothing in the background also it lags terribly bad and crashes on me after a few extrudes or free hand shapes which is pretty bad if I can’t even do that. I was interested in going pro but if I can’t even get through the free version then I see no sense in wasting my time, effort or money. Perhaps it’s just my iPad since my iOS is up to date ect.

I would really like to use this app for my own work since I’ve seen some pretty amazing stuff come out of it in the community creations gallery and from tutorials. I’ve been following and doing the tuts which didn’t seem to give me much of an issue but when I go to create my own thing it does sadly.

Hello, thanks for your review and for listing the issues. We would love to address each of your concerns as we take our users experience quite seriously. Firstly, the iPad 2 is the oldest iPad that uMake runs on. As uMake is a 3D sketching application, it requires quite a fair amount of processing power. As models become more complex, there are more objects to render in 3D, and thus the demand for processing power increases. This can mean heavy battery usage, and as models become more complex, a slowdown in performance. This is the case with any 3D application, even running on high powered computers. As the iPad 2 features the first generation of 64bit processors that Apple made, it is working very hard to run uMake.
Going Pro: We are happy to hear you enjoyed the application so much you considered going pro, however to be clear, if you don't plan on exporting your creations out of uMake to further develop, or import work you are working on, then the free version would meet all of your creative needs.
Crashes - There are few known bugs right now with extrude along path, (especially when symmetry is on) that will cause uMake to crash. We will solve these bugs and more in future updates. We would be happy to discuss more or know more about your issues if you send us an e-mail to Thanks again for the review. We would love to get you up and fully running!

Money Grab


Nice clear features and tutorials which are massively overshadowed by default crippled Free version and ridiculous subscription model for the paid version.

Basically you can design in 3D but you cannot do anything with the design except mail a 2D picture of it to a friend...which defeats the point of developing in 3D in the first place. You must also create an account to store your creations in thier cloud (like that is even remotely as secure and flexible as Apple’s iCloud, or even your IPad’s Filles section!)

Basically if you dont pay the exsorbanent susbscription of fee of $10 ongoing (yeah, over and over) you will not have any ability to download in any of the standard 3D file formats like .stl,.obj, etc... Instead they give you the LAME ability to save a .umk file that ONLY their software can read!!!

The money grab is palpable here...$10 is high for an app price, but it might have been worth it ONCE, BUT NOT AS A SUBSCRIPTION!!!

I would look at Blender on the PC, or Gravity Sketch on iOS....both give you the ability to save in standard 3D formats for FREE.

Nothing wrong with trying to make money but $10 for this app is as much as it should cost...with no reoccurring suscription fee BS...and I am being generous in giving it that much of a market value.

Hello Fugaze, thank you for taking the time to write your review, and sharing your thoughts with the uMake team and others. We are always evaluating what makes the most sense and what is fair in terms of charging for features. In the two years since we've launched, we've enabled unlimited design creation (this means users can create as many designs as they like), unlocked all advanced tools such as mirroring, array tool, and others, and improved upon our export features, even adding OBJ as one of the formats users can export to. We feel that the value provided by uMake as a free application is quite generous, enabling anyone to create and share their ideas in 3D for free. Those who will take their ideas further by means of exporting are most likely enthusiasts/ professionals, in which case we feel the value they are getting from being able to use uMake to start an idea and then export it to take it further is still quite good at 9.99/month or 99/ year. If you break it down, this is less than 1 lunch/ month, 2 beers, or 3 coffees. We put a lot of time creating the tutorial videos you enjoy and are about to create many more, and we also put a lot of time/ energy into developing new features for users like yourself. When you subscribe to uMake, it means a lot to us as you are supporting our efforts to be able to continue to develop our vision of making 3D easy for anyone on the go. We want to continue to bring amazing value to uMake, but to do that, we do need a bit of support from our users, and have found the freemium model to be quite fair. We are a small team with big dreams, so any support makes a big difference. I hope this helps to explain our side of the situation because our intention is to not get rich, not be a 'money grab' and not to be unfair-- instead it is to be able to enable anyone to create in 3D, to provide amazing value, and to be fair, and to be able to stick around for a long time. Thanks again for your feedback, and I hope you will consider our response.
