HTC Launches Modeling and Designing App – MakeVR
HTC and Sixense launched MakeVR, a VR application that allows users to sculpt and model in VR and then export the results to a 3D printer or a CAD program. MakeVR uses the HTC Vive’s controllers to let people do some free modeling and design.
HTC Appeals Professional Users with MakeVR
The user interface looks like a real designer studio where you can do your own artistic work with the Vive controllers.
“Room-scale VR gives creators a virtual workshop, and the use of natural physical motions brings unprecedented expressiveness and intuitiveness to object design.”
Said Vive Studios Head Joel Breton.
HTC claims the app is designed for people of all ages and different skills because the system is highly intuitive and features a low learning curve for its interface. MakeVR can help people create 3D objects fairly easy on a 1-to-q scale with simple gestures and movements.
The company also claims that using the application can give you a professional experience that is more expressive and powerful than a mouse or a touchscreen. But let’s face it, MakeVR still looks more like an artistic video game than a professional app. However, that’s the point of view of someone like me that is not artistic at all. The app lets you send files to modeling apps and you can also print them in 3D them directly, which is quite useful. MakeVR is now available for $20 at Viveport, and HTC promises to develop an even better version later this year, the MakeVR Pro.
