Post Major new version of Spacedraw for Android

Professional 3D modeling on tablets and smartphones is viable finally!

Major new version of Spacedraw for Android available, further extensive updates to follow frequently


Spacedraw
  • is a full-featured 3D-modeling program for all Android tablets and smartphones
  • is developed from scratch to make use of multi-touch and motion-sensors throughout
  • introduces novel ways of viewing, drawing & modeling

Features include
  • CAD construction
  • advanced polygon & patch modeling
  • lighting & texture mapping
  • 3d-painting

Since the release in October 2012, Spacedraw has proved suitable for creating professional artwork, see the images below, done 100% with Spacedraw on a 4" smartphone (using beta versions of the new release).

However, Spacedraw was not developed further for over a year, and serious bugs and shortcomings prevented its application in real-world projects. This will change with the release of version 1.1 today, that fixes over 20 serious bugs and adds more than 10 important features, e.g.
  • orthographic projection
  • backface culling
  • freezing objects
  • unselect tools
  • repeated extrude
  • completely redesigned reference CS management

The further development runs at full speed now, next updates soon will bring
  • fundamental usability improvements
  • interactive help and tutorials
  • substantial performance increase
  • stylus support
  • a complete revision of the painting tools
  • a multitude of new functionalities, e.g. advanced rendering capabilities, boolean operations
  • full-featured animation

Suggestions for improvements are highly welcome and will be taken seriously!

See www.scalisoft.com for further information

Spacedraw is available as a free version without ads on Google Play and Amazon that can be used with the following limitations:
  • only scenes with up to 1000 vertices can be saved or exported as .obj files
  • the undo-history cannot be saved to files
A key can be purchased for currently just $2.99 (until March 8, then $11.99) to remove these limitations (Google Play , Amazon)

unfortunately not soon, you'll have to get an Android tablet - thare are really cheap ones avaivable now powerful enough for Spacedraw, ~1GHz Dual Core, ~1GB RAM will do.

Could you perhaps reconsider the length of the introductory offer, giving people a bit more time to "test drive" it?

There always is a completely free version with no ads including all features needed for evaluation - as I wrote, the only limitations are that
  • only scenes with up to 1000 vertices can be saved or exported as .obj files (scenes of any size can be opened and edited)
  • the undo-history cannot be saved to files (the undo-history is available for the current project always)

Well, my remark was motivated by the steep price increase. I am an owner of the "old key" and being forced to decide so rapidly before having to pay this new price just sounded a bit strange.

There is no "old key" - the one you've purchased works with Spacedraw 1.1 and will work with any future update - simply update the main app "Spacedraw".

But thanks for the hint, I'll indicate this more clearly

I'll help if you've any trouble

actually you can't by the Key again - Google Play will indicate it as purchased!

Version 1.2 out with many new view-navigation features
- undo/redo view: analogous to normal undo; there's also a view-history-list
- view-panel: lets you save and load custom views (with previews)
- frame selected / frame all: tap the view-zone with 2 / 3 fingers
- the "perspective distortion" can be adjusted
Further, many fixes and improvements for selection and undo.
