New Virtual Reality Design Tool: Gravity Sketch

In 2014, Gravity Sketch set out to develop a tool that would democratise digital 3D design. The company saw a future world where we all are much more 3D literate and the key to this future was content. So far Gravity Sketch has been a powerful tool for some and the company now want to allow everyone to get involved.

Gravity Sketch VR announcement:

We are now launching on the next platform in our road map "Gravity Sketch VR." Unlike other artistic VR creation tools, Gravity Sketch is focused on a professional creative workflow. We based the creation of geometry in non-destructive parametric modeling, allowing users to explore infinite iterations of their ideas. Going beyond strokes in space this solution is equipped with powerful tools like surfaces, symmetry, revolutions, and control point editing. Designers,

Designers, architects and engineers can create quick 3D mockups of ideas and seamlessly bring them to more complex CAD software with our powerful file format. It's time for VR to become a serious professional design tool; we are excited to deliver our tool on this exciting platform.

Reinventing the Workflow:

For years designers have used pen and paper to represent their 3D ideas and then move into complex computer aided design (CAD) software for 3D visualization. We propose ditching the pen and paper and working with your 3D ideas directly in 3D.

With the six powerful entry tools (stroke, brush, revolve, curved surface, surface, primitives) our beta community has been creating amazing work and redefining how they visualize, communicate, and share ideas. Some have dropped 2D sketch altogether completely innovating their workflow and some have flipped it on its head. Gravity Sketch is already disrupting archaic workflows like automotive design ditching clay modeling, architecture working directly in 1:1 scale and animators immersed in their scenes.

We have been able to penetrate these workflows due to the flexibility of our geometry and file format. Allowing all the content to flow straight into the next step in their process.


"Done in VR using Gravity Sketch. It is a NURBS modeller and it is freaking awesome. VR has a lot of advantages over traditional 3D, one of them ability to scale, move and rotate at the same time. You know exactly where you want to place object and it feels super intuitive and saves time." Jama Jurabaev. Art Director at Industrial Light and Magic


Launching on Steam and Oculus:

We have been working closely with our 500 beta testers and have come to a great place in the development where we would like to open the tool to a wider audience. We are launching our basic solution on Steam and Oculus followed by a professional and enterprise solution later in the year, which is currently being developed closely with automotive OEMs and architecture studios.

About Gravity Sketch:

Based in London UK, we're a small team of designers and engineers who are passionate about developing inclusive creation experiences. We come from mixed backgrounds ranging from mechanical engineering, physics, and industrial design. As individuals we have extensive experience with design and manufacturing of physical products. One thing we continuously found frustrating during or professional work was the initial ideation stage where the creator moves from 2D sketches to a digital 3D environment through the use of CAD. We started Gravity Sketch to breath new life into this industry and increase access to digital design and manufacturing process in hopes to increase overall 3D literacy.
