Gravity Sketch is an application aimed at making creating within virtual reality (VR) as simple and intuitive as doing a quick sketch on a bit of paper. The software is already in use through large potions of the automotive industry, and has now launched into Steam Early Access to allow more users to experience it.
The software allows users to trace an idea from basic conception, through design, refinement and finalisation in full 3D in VR, using simple and intuitive controls. It’s even possible to export creations made in Gravity Sketch to CAD software, game engines or a 3D printer for further development. Models created in Gravity Sketch can also be uploaded to the Cloud for easy sharing to friends and colleagues.
Users can buy the basic version of Gravity Sketch VR from Steam at a price of £19.54 (GBP), a 15% discount on the usual retail price of £22.99, the special offer is due to end on 9th August, 2017. A subscription service offering additional features is also available.
The developers at Gravity Sketch Limited are keen to communicate with users about improvements that could be made, new features to add and of course, any glitches or bugs that may be noticed. A date for the full release of Gravity Sketch has not yet been announced, but the developers say that extra features such as 3D Print Mode and Video Recording will be added to the full release.
Gravity Sketch is available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, using tracked motion controllers for the intuitive control experience envisioned by the developers. Further information and updates can be found on the Steam page.
