The highest-rated CAD in the App Store, Shapr3D offers all the necessary features to provide an unforgettable creative process.
István Csanády, the CEO and founder of Shapr3D, said:
“I came up with the idea for Shapr3D because I could see the urgent need for a 3D modeling application that is intuitive and easy to use on the move. I believe that if you are using a tool for 8-10 hours a day, it should fundamentally be better than what is on offer to designers today. We all want consumer-like apps at work, and sub-standard experiences just aren’t acceptable anymore. My generation, in particular, simply won’t tolerate bad software, and the CAD software world hasn’t changed in three decades.”
