"Shapelab first hooked me with Dynamic Tesselation, which actually greatly enhances the advantage that polygon-based sculpting already has for me over voxel-based sculpting! It really is a boon to my way of working."

Cody Rutty

Painter and 3D artist

“The multi-object capability, boolean workflow, and paint feature alongside how smoothly it ran took me by surprise. You all have built something that surpasses other tools in many ways.”

Glen Southern

“I really like where you are going with the program. I did some tests of blocking out full characters and I’m very fast with Shapelab which surprised me as dynamic tessellation isn’t something I’ve been a big fan of. Until now!”

VR 3D modeling with Shapelab

For beginner 3D artists and aspiring creatives, VR sculpting has the potential to shorten the learning curve and open doors to solve complex design problems needed to digitize and improve their traditional workflows and processes.
For 3D designers, VR can be a helpful addition to the workflow – for quickly creating concepts, blocking out characters, adding details and instantly testing their work in life-size. Moreover, VR can be extremely helpful when inspecting and cleaning up large 3D scan data.

Why VR?

Using virtual reality for 3D modeling offers numerous advantages.

It allows you to work with your creations in a more natural way as if they were physical objects right in front of you. This provides a level of immersion and depth that is simply not possible with traditional 2D modeling tools.

Additionally, VR 3D modeling can increase productivity, as it allows you to work faster and more efficiently, even with greater precision in certain cases.
