Professional 3D modeling on tablets and smartphones is viable finally!

- Major new version of Spacedraw available, further extensive updates to follow soon and regularly

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 the website for further information

Spacedraw is available as a free version without ads 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

Thumbs up
This Android app is damn impressive. Nothing comes close to that on any mobile OS. Sure there are some serious bugs left. But in terms of pure poly modeling (complex splines skeletons and patches are still a bit bugged) it's possible to model anything. I did a lot of complex meshes using spacedraw while travelling. Only big thing missing in my opinion to make it a perfect modeler : unwrap UVW. Controls on texture mapping exist (UVs edit) but are far too hard to manage : you have to do the UVs editing in the 3D view ! instead of moving the planar projection of your wireframe.
But again : this is a perfect example that 1) phones are now powerful enough to handle generous amount of wireframes and complex geometry editing (before Spacedraw most of the devs were doing only "3D viewers"... a bit cheap innit ? 2) 3D modeling with your hands is the present folks.

I hope Spacedraw will improve soon. And I REALLY hope that Discreet or other major players in the business will wake up soon and realise that there IS a market here !
