MakeVR Pro Brings Precision Tools to 3D Modeling
Vive Studios and Sixense launch MakeVR Pro, a VR content creation experience with a professional CAD engine that allows 3D object modeling in Virtual Reality.
MakeVR Pro Now Available on Viveport
MakeVR is a 3D content creation experience for 3D object modeling in Virtual Reality, designed for designers and makers of all skill levels. The app features an intuitive interface and takes full advantage of the HTC Vive’s room-scale VR to provide creators with a virtual space to design and explore objects like never before.
The new MakeVR Pro app has new precision functionality that increases detail and accuracy of 3D projects, helping creators and professional 3D designers. It costs $39.99 and it’s available on Viveport.
“This new layer of precision, combined with Vive’s room-scale technology, paves the way for MakeVR Pro to become the primary 3D object modeling tool for professionals,” said Joel Breton, GM of Vive Studios. “Users can now manipulate objects with increased precision to take advantage of the fidelity and space that VR allows, much like the way carpenters and machinists work in their real-world shops.”
MakeVR Pro adds new tools for the alignment of objects using mirroring, surface tracking, snapping, jigs, grids, and rulers. These tools allow anyone to create solid-model content with rotational and positional accuracy, improving control and promoting creativity.
“While still a simple and intuitive solution to use, we wanted to ensure that MakeVR Pro provides anyone the ability to create content with precision and accuracy,” said Amir Rubin, Co-founder, and CEO of Sixense. “Our collaboration with Vive Studios has made for a professional-grade creativity experience that provides a powerful yet easy way, for people ranging from 3D print enthusiasts to industry professionals, to build precision models while immersed in a virtual environment.”
This CAD-based, precise, content creation is what makes this VR app so special and different from the other painting, sculpting, and modeling applications. The increased level of control makes Virtual Reality creations look more powerful and natural than ever. You can export your objects for 3D printing and even connect the app with Shapeways, an online printing service.
