About 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.

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

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.

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.

The best and only iPad CAD app

Reviewed on 2020/11/27

Pros

It's very easy to use, everything it's where you expect it. It can export in many file types and they are updating it very often and they are adding new ones. The use of the apple pencil makes everything easy and good to use.

Cons

Sometimes there is a bug, the app doesen't let you edit a shape, to extrude it and to make any changes on it. You have to restart it. You can't do so many things on this app like on an Inventor for example, but they are getting closer.

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.

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.

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.

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.
