Shapr3D Overview

What is Shapr3D?

Shapr3D is a cloud-based 3D CAD application, which enables engineering and architectural firms to create geometric models on self-intersecting surfaces through complex calculations. Compatible with iPad and Apple Pencil, it allows designers to snap, guide, and auto-complete shapes on a customizable grid.

The application allows architects to create symmetrical lines, circles, and arcs and combine separate entities using subtract, union, and intersect Boolean formulas. Designers can use the transformation tools to move, rotate, and scale models by selecting a pivot point or axis. Users can build workflows and create 2D and 3D models using reference images, blueprints, and sketches. It also lets designers add colors to geometries, utilize the loft tool to create objects based on closed sketches, and translate sketches or edges to another face using the project tool.

Shapr3D offers integration with various desktop CAD and 3D printing software such as SolidWorks, PTC, Catia, Fusion, OnShape, and more. It also enables users to export 3D models in multiple file formats including X_T, STEP, IGES, DXF, JPG, and PNG.

Very mighty and mobile tool

This is the best choice you can make when it comes to 3D modeling on iPad.

The best choice of 3D design software in my opinion.

I use this program many hours a day, in each of the projects I am working on. I have been able to advance much faster in the development of my ideas since the way of drawing is very intuitive. I still do not handle 100% of the available functions, however I have been able to do each of the parts that I could imagine. It has a YouTube channel in which they publish useful examples to better understand how some parts can be drawn.

Excellent and easy to use 3d modelling tool

We use Shapr3D to design escape rooms, puzzles and furniture. The software made our work easier, since we do our concept design as a group. The software gives us the opportunity to think in 3D and show immediately what we think would be the perfect mechanism or solution for a given implementation.

Best mobile cad app for the ipad

We use shapr 3D to design furniture, products, as well as architecture / interior design modeling while on site and in the studio.

It can also import external mesh and cad files needed for your design approach and later export the design as mesh or cad format needed for 3D printing, rendering, or further cad modeling / documentation in other external cad applications.

Shapr3D paired with sketching applications such as sketchbook are a tremendous value combining both 2d and 3D designing on a mobile device but with desktop grade power.

Great product. Amazing customer support

Shapr is fast and fun to use. With it, we are able to facilitate early decision making by providing accurate and understandable models, predict potential challenges in design, fabrication and installation. We have enhanced communication, collaboration, and transparency with all project stakeholders.

This is the best choice you can make when it comes to 3D modeling on iPad.

Pros

- very intuitive usage
- very mobile (work everywhere)
- quick (just two clicks and you start to design)
- great for showing off designs at clients site

Cons

- lack of material textures (carbon, alu, steel)
- lack of assembly tools for more complex designs done on the go

Pros

A complex system can be designed in much less time. When you write to technical support, they respond and solve! They also listen to user suggestions. Drawing with Apple Pencil is very convenient. It is very easy to export the files for 3D printing.

Cons

I have not yet been able to couple parts and simulate movements without the design being disarmed. If you want to align the center of two single cylinders for example, I don't know yet the tool to execute this action with ease.

Pros

Easy to use and an intuitive ui. For me using the Apple Pencil to do my drawing is a lot better than a keyboard/mouse -combo. This obviously has its limitations, but for my use case and the ability to quickly sketch in 3d anywhere is a killer feature.

Cons

Being only on the iPad is the biggest downside. A viewer app for Mac would make my workflow a lot better than it is now. Being able to view and measure on a bigger screen would be great.
Otherwise with the recent addition of iPadOS there are very few cons.

Pros

Shapr3D has the power of industrial strength cad but providing this to a very designer friendly interface and workflow.

It provides all relevant modeling and sketching/drafting commands needed to create geometry on the go, while in the model making shop, or while ideating along or with a client.

Cons

Currently it mainly focuses on solid modeling.

Pros

Very easy to use and to learn. Tech support is very responsive and the tutorials are great.

Cons

I don't really have any cons, but I would like to see a lot of features added. Things like CYMK, RGB color control, more import and export file types, an Autocad overkill type feature for dwg export, auto dimensioning, export to 3D Pdf and regular pdf and align and distribute objects.
