Shapr3D Announces Upcoming New Features
Shapr3D plans to add MacOS support, 3D Alignment and an Augmented Reality tool to its popular mobile CAD solution by the end of 2020.
The developers of Shapr3D, a mobile-based CAD platform for 3D modeling, have announced new features alongside its 20,000th sale to an iPad Pro user.
The company plans to add macOS availability by the end of 2020, repositioning Shapr3D as a multi-platform tool and providing existing users with an additional device to optimize their workflows.
Other updates like 3D Alignment and the Augmented Reality tool – which enables users to export models to Apple’s Reality Composer and visualize their models and designs in a real world setting – continue the company’s goal to meet the needs of its audience and potential new users.
Based on Parasolid’s geometric modeling kernel, Shapr3D’s app empowers people all over the world to create professional 3D models, no matter their industry or location. The company says the app’s simple UX and subscription-based model make it easier to start using than traditional CAD tools, which typically have a high barrier to entry due to their complexity and significantly higher price tag.
“Cutting-edge and intuitive 3D tools are a must in the CAD industry,” remarks Kálmán Kéménczy, Shapr3D’s head of product. “Designers and product managers have stringent expectations and need 3D CAD tools that allow them to do their best work. Shapr3D offers an innovative product, with the freedom to express design creativity.”
