Shapr3D moves from “imagination to production”

1 March 2021, Budapest, Hungary – Shapr3D, the world’s most UX-obsessed 3D modeling app for iPad and macOS, announces the release of their highly anticipated Drawings feature today as well as brand new pricing tiers. Having already shaken up the industry with their mobile-first, ultra-intuitive CAD solution, the Drawings launch positions Shapr3D as a one-stop shop solution for design focused companies who manufacture industrial goods.

With Drawings, Shapr3D now supports the full concept-to-manufacturable-drawing journey, in the same easy and mobile CAD that users around the world fell in love with for creating 3D models. This will empower many users, particularly Mechanical Engineers, Industrial Designers, and Design Project Managers to spend less time jumping back and forth between platforms and more time on work that matters, not to mention saving up to thousands of US dollars on extra tools.

Drawings will be exclusively available on Shapr3D’s new Business plan — which is being unveiled today and will replace the Pro package — for $499/year or $59/month. Business users will be able to create 2D views from a 3D body and save them as DWG or DXF files. The plan also includes unlimited CAD imports/exports, designs, and workspaces — as well as seamless integration with your desktop CAD.

With its newly differentiated pricing tiers and Drawings offering, this defining moment in Shapr3D’s journey promises to disrupt the way businesses use CAD the same way the company revolutionized the industry so far with its mobility and UX obsessed platform.

István Csanády, Founder and CEO of Shapr3D, confirms the company’s new focus, “First, we created an unforgettable CAD design experience for CAD users. Now we’re going to do the same and more for businesses.” He elaborates: “Shapr3D will be the go-to app for design focused companies looking to easily envision, design, and manufacture industrial goods. Every new feature takes us one step closer to rivaling traditional CAD giants, but with our direct modeling approach and an unwavering commitment to UX that sets us miles apart.”

The new pricing comes into effect on March 8th, and existing Pro users will be upgraded at no extra cost to the business package as long as their account is active. Prospective users can also take advantage of Shapr3D’s special promotion in the run-up to the new release: anyone purchasing the Pro version between now until March 8 will only pay $249 and will be eligible for the automatic upgrade, too.

Alongside the business plan, Shapr3D also introduces its new Hobby package, priced at $149/year or $30/month, which comes with STL export for 3D printing, 10 workspaces, and will be available for personal use.

“The addition of Drawings completes Shapr3D’s design capabilities to support concept to manufacturing. Now all key roles in the design process from Product Managers, Engineering Managers, Industrial Designers, Mechanical Engineers, and Manufacturing can take full advantage of Shapr3D’s intuitive user interface, with the flexibility of using any device they like,” says Michelle Boucher, Vice President of Engineering Software Research at research firm, Tech-Clarity. “Plus, the tiered pricing means they can take advantage of it at a very affordable price.”

“Shapr3D is developing a tool that’s built from the ground up for capturing ideas and using the power of three dimensional design to progress those ideas and concepts further – on a platform and with an input method that’s long underserved in the design and engineering software market. The addition of the ability to then document those ideas using the new drawing capabilities makes it even more useful,” adds Al Dean, Editor in Chief, DEVELOP3D

“Shapr3D delivers a refreshing change for those frustrated by the complexities and user interface legacies of some other CAD tools. For those that love their Apple products, iPads and Macs; they’ll feel particularly at home, possibly even delighted with the user interface. Their recently (and soon to be) released functionality is an intriguing evolution of the platform, aiming to be much more in tune with the needs of those involved in product design, engineering and manufacturing.” Allan Behrens, Managing Director, Taxal Limited
