UMake app brings 3D sketching experience to iOS

UMake app brings 3D sketching experience to iOS

UMake is a design app for iOS currently under development that aims at offering designers a 3D natural sketching experience. They are currently looking for talented creatives to join the beta test team.



UMake is a powerful 3D design app, makes it easier for designers & makers bring their ideas into 3D easily and intuitively with a natural sketching experience.

The app supports the creation of several types of 3D surfaces – like lofted and revolved surfaces – that can later be exported to conventional 3D packages like Rhino or Alias.

Now the development team is looking for a number of talented designers who are interested in trying the app and are willing to provide them with constant feedback for the development process – the availability is very limited for practical and logistical reasons.

Using a 3D sketching app it is possible to explore shapes and designs very quickly, when compared to traditional CAD software.

Currently UMake works on iPad 3rd generation, iPad Air 1, iPad Air 2 or iPad Mini 2 and 3. Below we report some of the projects created on UMake by the beta testers.
