Any feature ideas?


Hi, i tried your app for a while already and i must say it’s really amazing.
The only thing that i couldn’t find that i would really love to see is a 3D dimensioning command.
Since i usually need to show all the measurements of the pieces i make to people before we can start the production of them I think it would really ease my work with an Apple Pencil cause on the other programs i have seen there is usually a lot of trouble dealing with UCS.
Please tell me if there is already something similar inside the app because i couldn’t find it.
Something similar to this:


Not yet, but improving documenting capabilities, like 3d dimensioning and drawing exports are planned, but we don’t have an ETA for that.


Compatibility with a photorealistic rendering app would be really nice and take a bite out of Sketchup :slight_smile:


Well, Shapr is compatible with all the rendering apps. Or do you mean, direct integration?


That’s good to know. I’m what one would call a “true” 3D novice, trying to emerge from a 2D “Illustrator” world. But then, that is very much to your advantage for those like me who are dismayed by what the folks at Fusion 360 are calling novice level training. :slight_smile: I salute your patience!


STL is the standard mesh file format, that you can import to all the rendering apps, like Keyshot.


I’m partial to this, as well. I have a project that I would like to be able to display textures such as fabrics/wood/metal… and be able to change the texture with ease. Simply saving the step of having to export/etc. would prevent the fears that anything would be changed in the process.

I know that’s a big ask but maybe down the road.


Have you seen the time-lapse feature on Procreate? It’s so cool and fun to watch - youtube is full of them, which raises the profile of the app. I think Shapr3d should have a similar feature


I think it’s important to be able to export dxf files because many subcontractors use this format for several cutting machines, Especially in furniture industry.
I’m a product developer in the furniture industry, including upholstered furniture and I use Shapr when I draw the various parts.
but then i have to open the files in a other program (fusion 360) on the computer and make dxf files from there, so i hope that shapr can do that in a near future :relaxed:


Will you be adding a way to project to sketch

Is there a way to. Limit extrusions


Wonderful app!
I have several suggestions for adding features:
Select multiple layers to move the shapes. The shapes automatically assign the color assigned to the layer. Snap to point when extruding shape. Show shape dimensions when selecting(H/W/L)


Yes, we will add a projection tool soon. Whta do you mean by limiting extrusions?


I’m really having issues with working planes and extents.
It would be awesome to be able to interact directly with working planes.

As far as feature creation (pardon me as I am new to your sowtware) Extents such as "From/To, Next, Through Next, Through All, Finite (Specific Distance).

It would be awesome to have a chance to talk with someone form your Organization as I am very interested in getting an out of the classroom experience for students. But I have to translate methodologies and toolsets in a very general crossover style and currently (I have limited experience with your software) you seem to be missing a few key elements needed for beginners.

Constraints disappear and do not show when they have fully describe a cross section.

Working planes need to be discreet entities.

I know your working on many aspects.

If you have a minute it would be excellent to speak with someone from your organization.

Thanks Zuck, @Peter_Shapr3D will reach out in a few weeks.


Hello sir,I like to ask a software doubt,let’s say I am designing a motorcycle with shapr3d,these are my doubts

  1. Can I use this model as an end model for manufacturing purposes,I mean without using CATIA/SOLIDWORKS or industrial softwares like that will I be able to use this as the final model for direct CAD manufacturing?
  2. Also will I be able to render this model directly in SOLIDWORKS VISUALIZE?

  1. Yes
  2. Yes

Although we don’t have any CAM tools, but the output files are high quality, and ready to be loaded to a CNC machine or any CAM software.


Thank you sir


Sir,please can you suggest the best standalone rendering software for shapr3d models with the best high end graphics


Is there any feature like to animate the parts of a shapr3d model sir?
