Post Spacedraw, the first full-featured 3d-modeling software for tablets and smartphones


An advanced 3d-graphics program, developed from scratch for multi-touch tablets and smartphones, is now available for Android!

Spacedraw
  • introduces novel ways of viewing, drawing & modeling
  • makes efficient and intuitive use of multi-touch and motion-sensors throughout
  • runs on almost any Android-device and adapts to any screen-size, -type and -resolution
  • is aimed at both professionals and novices

It covers
  • drawing / constructing lines, curves and primitives
  • polygon- and patch-modeling
  • lighting, materials, texture mapping
  • 3d-painting

Available at scalisoft.com is
  • a detailed feature list
  • a comprehensive user manual
  • first examples of what can be done with Spacedraw, as scene files with construction-history, and screencasts of the creation
  • a quick-start guide to take the first steps with Spacedraw

Spacedraw is available as a free, ad-free version that can be used without any limitation aside from
only scenes and models with up to 1000 vertices, and no undo-history can be saved to files
A key can be purchased to remove this limitation for currently just $4.99

Get it at Google Play!

Please use this thread to discuss the program!

Modeling on Android sounds like the best news I've heard all week!

That's strange. The PDF manual does install with the app though so at least you have that.

I will say one thing after installing it. It looks very powerful, but the UI needs a serious overhaul. It's very confusing.

It also downloads and places texture files in your gallery folder. I totally agree with you about the UI needing some work. I tried using the app for a few minutes and gave up. I will probably give it another try later on.

Oh I hadn't even noticed the textures in my gallery. That's kind of annoying. I wouldn't really mind if there was one "Spacedraw textures" folder to collect them all.

No, it does't download anything; the textures are bundled with the app and copied to the /spacedraw/textures folder of the device's SD-card (or internal storage) when the app is started the first time

I'm starting to get the idea of the zones along the bottom for navigation, but I think it needs to be more obvious where they are. Perhaps faint lines surrounding them like in this example. Perhaps a text title for each zone too:



I think it will be difficult for people to get used to this since we're so used to using pinch to zoom for almost every app.

Edit: And now I realize the top is divided as well so another vertical line should be added up there.

Your website still doesn't work. It's just a blank white page with some symbools: 

Edit: It works in Chrome and IE, but not Firefox.

The site should work in Firefox now also; if not, set the encoding to UTF-8 or empty the browser-cache
