Major new version of Spacedraw for Android

Post by Scalisoft » 02 Mar 2014, 00:15

Image Professional 3D modeling on tablets and smartphones is viable finally!
- Major new version of Spacedraw for Android available, further extensive updates to follow frequently


Spacedraw
  • is a full-featured 3D-modeling program for all Android tablets and smartphones
  • is developed from scratch to make use of multi-touch and motion-sensors throughout
  • introduces novel ways of viewing, drawing & modeling
Features include
  • CAD construction
  • advanced polygon & patch modeling
  • lighting & texture mapping
  • 3d-painting
Since the release in October 2012, Spacedraw has proved suitable for creating professional artwork, see the images below, done 100% with Spacedraw on a 4" smartphone (using beta versions of the new release).

However, Spacedraw was not developed further for over a year, and serious bugs and shortcomings prevented its application in real-world projects. This will change with the release of version 1.1 today, that fixes over 20 serious bugs and adds more than 10 important features, e.g.
  • orthographic projection
  • backface culling
  • freezing objects
  • unselect tools
  • repeated extrude
  • completely redesigned reference CS management
The further development runs at full speed now, next updates soon will bring
  • fundamental usability improvements
  • interactive help and tutorials
  • substantial performance increase
  • stylus support
  • a complete revision of the painting tools
  • a multitude of new functionalities, e.g. advanced rendering capabilities, boolean operations
  • full-featured animation
Suggestions for improvements are highly welcome and will be taken seriously!

See www.scalisoft.com for further information

Spacedraw is available as a free version without ads on Google Play and Amazon that can be used with the following limitations:
  • only scenes with up to 1000 vertices can be saved or exported as .obj files
  • the undo-history cannot be saved to files
A key can be purchased for currently just $2.99 (until March 8, then $11.99) to remove these limitations (Google Play, Amazon)

I downloaded it tonight since the Special paid version is only $2.99 this week only. Sweet!
Now I can 3D doodle on my Nexus 7 while I drive to work... :o

Excellent Work Scalisoft ;) I'm really glad to know that anyone can now give a try to an app I've seen evolving for months. I'm using this update right now and definitely : it rocks :).
I'm working on a tutorial at the moment. I'll made it available probably this week. I'll post the link here.

Version 1.2 out with many new view-navigation features
- undo/redo view: analogous to normal undo; there's also a view-history-list
- view-panel: lets you save and load custom views (with previews)
- frame selected / frame all: tap the view-zone with 2 / 3 fingers
- the "perspective distortion" can be adjusted
Further, many fixes and improvements for selection and undo.

A thread dedicated to WIP done with Spacedraw has been established here - you are encouraged to post your art there!
