Touchscreen Sketching Lowers the Barriers to 3D Literacy
An iPad app is paving the way to easier tools for makers
Gravity Sketch is an iPad app that lets users create 3D models via sketches on a screen and then order them to be shipped to your home in just two days.
Users can showcase their creations on social media and even share them in 3D with Sketchfab. With the declining price of 3D printing and the rise of virtual reality, 3D literacy could become a key skill for those looking to work in science, manufacturing, and entertainment. Today, 70 percent of UK schools use tablets and 300 million iPads are available worldwide.
