What designers think

The way of interaction and the time it takes to learn it is better than with traditional programs.

A Virtual reality workflow

An intuitive user experience that combines CAD and VR.

Flyingshapes is tailored specifically to the process of concept modeling and form finding for creative professionals from industrial designers to transportation designers to architects. Create any kind of product — espresso machines, cars or other vehicles, even skyscrapers — simply by drawing 3D objects with the controllers in your hands.

Seamlessly switch from rough sketching to perfect contours.

The pen tool lets you adjust the brush size and you can easily skribble away or erase mistakes. To refine the contours of your initial hand drawing use the curve tool to trace smooth arcs or perfectly straight lines, whatever you need to get the ideal outlines of your product.

Create smooth surfaces and see them in 3D-vision.

Drawing surfaces is simply a matter of adjusting the distance of the controllers in your hands and slightly turning you wrists to change the trajectory of your edge. You can snap edges to each other and adjust surfaces by dragging them until you are satisfied.

A Virtual reality workflow

Made for product design

Industrial designers will benefit greatly from our VR-CAD workflow. Being able to experience all three dimensions of a product instead of just a flat image is key to creating a gorgeous design that is usable in the real world.

For designing symmetrical objects we provide you with a mirror that duplicates whatever you are designing along a plane. It can be turned off whenever you want to create irregularities in your design. Other tools for taping, measurements and more will help you to bring to life whatever comes to your mind.

Soon we will enable you to collaborate with members of your team via cloud. Share your projects globally and simultaneously work on design objects with people from all over the world. Enable your clients to review and experience your designs remotely to give you feedback whenever you need it.

And finally simply export industry-grade 3D models to standard formats such as STEP, STL and others for subsequent uses like 3D printing. You can design your model in flyingshapes° and then conveniently export them to traditional CAD software for further processing.

Features

CAD Import & Export

You can import packages as a starting point for an inventive new exterieur simply by dragging and dropping 3D files into the application window. We support STEP, STL and IGES formats to easily exchange projects with traditional CAD programs and 3D printers.

Taping Tool

Mostly known from automotive design, our digital version of taping opens up a whole new dimension of expression. The tape tool is a great way to paint bold lines in a extremely controlled manner. It combines natural flowing motions with digital precision and smoothness.

Surface Building Tool

Digital modeling with our gesture-based workflow feels like crafting a sculpture. From roughly form building your base model to refining each detail of your workpiece you can shape your object by simply pushing and pulling surfaces.

Curve and Line Tool

Virtual reality lets you experience bezier curves in a whole new way. Our curve tool is fantastic to refine your initial drawing into a precise outline. Create perfect B-spline curves and crisp straight lines with simple gestures in VR space.

3D Sketch Pen Tool

With our digital pencil it is easier than ever to visualize your concept in 1:1 size before committing to a detailed CAD model. And thanks to VR you will instantaneously have a firm grasp of your vision's dimensions.

Your Virtual Design Studio

Kick off your design process with mood boards for conceptual brainstorming. Benefit from several productivity tools developed to streamline the form finding and modeling stages. Get from your initial concept to a detailed surface model in a single design environment.
