How to make round, curved “rings”

Please see attached. I have tried everything that I know (which isn’t much yet) to make the top ring of this graphic. I want it to look like the post but can’t figure how to make a curved ring. Any advice would really help.

Thank you in advance.1E478DC5-0FEF-4200-B94A-C172F40B736A

Use the sweep function.

Yes, that worked perfectly! Thank you.

Hey Gabor,
How do you record those cool videos, showing the Apple Pencil and finger spots for pinching and zooming in? Do you have a special version of Shapr3D?

As Robert pointed out:

Step 1: enable tutorial mode

  • go to iPad Settings
  • select the Shapr3D app
  • turn on Tutorial mode (requires restarting the app to be active)

Step 2: record videos using iOS 11

  • in iOS 11 you can record the screen of the iPad
  • you can enable it in the control panel of the iPad
  • start the recording, open Shapr3D, model
  • open the control panel to stop the recording
  • edit the video (cut the beginning / end if needed) in the Photos app on the iPad
  • you are ready to share the videos (save to iCloud, upload to Youtube, email to others etc)
