Thats just awesome
Ooh… I like the sound of that
Is materials, textures, uv map/unwrapping and rendering coming to shapr3d? or atleast some of them + usdz with uv map export ^^
Yep, we are on it
You can see some teasers in the latest article about us on engineering.com
Looks promising Can you also export it as USDZ? And other formats?
Not yet, but as with other features, we will keep making it better
The new rendering looks great!
Any timeframe on when we might see that?
The article was a nice glance into S3D and it’s mindset. Keep up the good work.
It depends on how development goes, but it’s deep in the works.
Best case we can give you some of the functionality this year.
What type of finishes will be available in Shapr3D? Particularly what type of wood finishes? Will users have the option to upload their own finish for rendering?
For start, we will provide a fixed list of available materials, which we will keep increasing. I expect at some point users will be able to upload and their own, but not at the start.
The list isn’t finalised yet, so I can’t give you an exact one, but expect a few of the most commonly used woods.
Thats AWSOME, I am looking forward for this <3
Really promising, any idea when it will be released?
Beta is coming in a few days , but no planned date for the actual release yet.
So nice! Any ways to be a beta tester?
For sure - it will be announced here on the forum in the coming days!
Will materials be used in USDZ export/preview?
There is litle to no option out there for this on the ipad.
Jig space does have that option. But that is 60usd a month if your files are over 30MB. Also the UX and UI is far inferior to shapr3d and Cadmio. Also the materials is not that good.
- Vectary is an online tool that can do it, but again not optimal for ipad.
- Sketchfab also have the ability, but again not that good on the ipad.
- Procreate has some UV mapping issues and there is no way to make glass . Procreate is also quite manually compared to something like Cadmio. You can edit the UV mapping in Nomad Sculpt. And there is another dedicated mapping tool app soon to be in beta now called CozyBlanket https://twitter.com/pablodp606/status/1487919128153370635?s=21
I do wish Cadmio could deliver USDZ export. Because of their amazing and realistic materials. But if Shapr3D can rival the materials and even get the export thing down, nothing is better . A big advantage is that you can still edit the model itself in shapr3D withouth having to redoo the materials. Like you would have to do when jumping between Shapr3d and Cadmio.
Not in the first release, but we are planning to add this function in the future.
Beta is live
This is exciting. I’ve been using Fusion360 for rendered USDZ previews so far.
