What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Based on the alpha release reviews, we believe that ShapeLab has reached and exceeded a development stage which can bring you an easy, joyful and practical virtual reality creation experience. We also know that there is a lot of work left for us!
Our dedicated team is full of awesome ideas and plans, but we believe that involving the community in the planning stage and making decisions is a must if our goal is to design a well-polished, fun and useful application!
We are asking you to please, come and explore this exciting uncharted territory with us and we’ll make amazing digital creation tools and virtual worlds together!
We appreciate any feedback you can share with us, so we can tailor the next steps development to be in-line with the needs and ideas of our users.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Our development roadmap is divided into more phases. We are going to introduce significant improvements during the summer of 2017, and the first final release is planned to be published in early 2018 :)”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our aim is to add more powerful design tools, and to turn the entire application into a social, shared virtual reality experience. Imagine when you meet your buddies - living in another city or country - for a co-creation party in VR.
Some of our planned features and tools: multi object handling, merge and subtract shapes, drawing in “the air”, 3D texture painting, cloud support, more sharing options, importing and exporting options, etc and simultaneous multi-user editing!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current release of our app is focused on a single-user experience with 7 different sculpting brushes, 2d painting features, 2 creation environments and several predesigned 3D model templates and saving/loading user designs and creative ambient music.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Our plan is to increase the price from time to time as we put more and more features and efforts into ShapeLab. We think this is a fair way to thank all the early adopters for their valuable contribution, and finance a fragment of our development costs at the same time.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We would like to collect as much feedback and ideas as possible through Steam platform, email and personal discussions at events and shows to be included into ShapeLab allowing the community to directly help and contribute to the development and growth of ShapeLab!”

About This Software

ShapeLab by Leopoly brings a joyful, easy and practical VR creation experience to all HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality Device owners. We are working on offering the most powerful and easiest VR design and presentation software solutions for professional and newcomer creators and designers.

This Early Access release empowers non-professional VR device owners to release their creativity and make their very own, colorful virtual 3D models and assets. The joint forces of Leopoly engine and VR devices simplifies the modeling process by enabling users to create in a fun and intuitive way. Users can sculpt, paint and play effortlessly while turning their imagination into reality. All designs can be saved in STL or OBJ file format for easy 3D printing.

- Import your own objects, view them in a chosen VR context, modify, save, 3D print
- Use predesigned 3D model templates or start creating from scratch
- Present your creations in the most fitting VR environment
- 10 sculpting tools and growing
- Limitless painting, various colors
- 6 different sculpting materials
- Numerous design environments
- Mesh-based sculpting
- Vertex painting
- Real-time polygon generation and optimization

This game changing virtual experience provides a natural environment for creation in the real world just as traditional sculpting and object formation is done. We believe that with our solution, creation is more intuitive, a lot more engaging and allow people to tap into creativity they’ve never used.
One key differentiator between Shapelab and the other solutions, is its usage of mesh-based modeling rather than voxel-based modeling. For most of the 3D assets, mesh-based modeling is more optimal than voxel if you would like to avoid blocky, rasterized designs. Realistic, detailed voxel models require significantly more memory than realistic polygonal models. Using voxel technology also means that you are dealing with not only the surface, but every internal “3D pixels / blocks” as well. On the top of all these, mesh based technology also makes it possible to vary the resolution in the same mesh.

What’s next?

We will add more powerful design tools, support more platforms, and turn the entire application into a social, shared virtual reality experience. Imagine when you meet your buddies - living in another city or country - for a co-creation party in VR. Leopoly will let you collaborate with others, combine your imaginations, share your designs and get inspired by each-others works.
Planned features and tools:

- VR Presentation mode: Real-time streaming, and 3D/VR viewing to let multiple users and decision makers to see, examine and observe creation processes, 3D models, assets, virtual environments and digital prototypes
- Co-creation mode – modelling with others at the same time, even the same mesh
- Scene/Environment building and editing
- Multi object handling and new design tools
- Object mixing
- Open desktop in VR
- Full control over polygon numbers
- Taking screenshots, record videos
- Online, browser based model sharing
- Import models from Leopoly Cloud
- Voice control
