With the advent of Apple’s ARKit SDK being released and the huge potential for AR to revolutionize mobile device use, we decided it was time to revisit our AR Roots from yesteryear (Yes before our adventures in VR we were making AR Apps and games years ago). And just then we were approached by Eric Neuman to bring his awesome and fun StroodleDoodle Virtual Reality app (Currently available on Steam & Vive) to live on this new platform using ARKit.

Canvas Extruder: Like a play-dough machine for AR, the canvas extruder is where you can draw 2D shapes and pop them into the third dimension. Just set the Extrusion Depth and stamp a copy of your poly into the world.
Adjust: Positioning objects in a traditional 3D editor is tedious and complex, but here, it could not be simpler. Just swipe and pinch, or grab and drop any polys to position them wherever you want. You can even scale your creations up to be life sized! Hello virtual spaces.
Paint: Monochromatic spaces are no fun, so you can easily choose the color of any poly before you stamp it into the world. Wanna change a poly’s color after stamping? We’ve got you covered.
Cut: Don’t like that poly? ZIP. Gone. Easily remove blobs you don’t like anymore.
Export: Save directly to sketchfab and share straight to social networks! Find it after you export at our Sketchfab Account. More advanced users can export directly to their own sketchfab accounts. Share your work!
