If you’re a Catalina user, please upgrade to Big Sur so you can keep enjoying new features and bug fixes. The intuitiveness and power of Big Sur make the latest OS Shapr3D’s powerful sidekick, guaranteeing the best possible designing experience for you.

But before you hit that Upgrade Now button, make sure you’ve backed up your Shapr3D designs to iCloud or any other cloud storage service. For more details, hop over to our Manual.


Why jump to only supporting a brand new OS from Apple?! Beta release has totally stopped my ability to work with Shapr3D on my Mac. The suggestion to upgrade isn’t looking at the big picture that sometimes we as the user community can’t just upgrade our Mac’s due to so, so many other reasons. For example, I can’t upgrade to Big Sur due to other non-compatible software plus I did upgrade and Big Sur really isn’t ready for prime time. Please re-think this move in your software development release. Typically, software support at least a couple past major releases from Apple such as supporting back to Mojave 10.14 or High Sierra 10.13. You had Catalina support and I would vote for it to come back please.
