123D Sculpt: Intuitive 3D modelling from Autodesk

With 123D Sculpt by Autodesk recreating that freakishly massive clay sculpted head from the video for Lionel Richie's cheesy 1983 hit 'Hello' is now within the grasp of every iPad owner!

As the marvellous Let's create! Pottery HD and iDough have already proved, the iPad is almost uniquely suited to this kind of 3D modelling.

We have only just started dabbling with 123D Sculpt (check out our first creation below) but we are already very impressed. Sculpting is fun and intuitive and with the ability to 'paint' photographs onto the 3D surface of your sculpture it's possible to create relatively lifelike models.

We think you will love Sculpt, it has all the makings of a truly classic iPad app. It's currently free so you have no excuses. Why not give it a whirl? Here's a little inspiration from uncle Lionel.

    Three dimentional (3D) modelling is getting more and more popular among the engineers as it saves both money and time. 3D modelling is able to provide an assumption about the whole project before launching any service or product.

Pad.

Thanks for commenting. The video plays fine here... strange.

I downloaded this app the other day and find it brilliant fun, the tools and features for manipulating the forms are good, solid and even quite responsive. I would like to see the inclusion of being able to import other shapes into the piece your currently working on to give it more potential and modelling options.

Its a great app for anyone who perhaps hasn't tried digital sculpting before and for those who have and just want to have some fun.

Wow, how cool is this app, seriously I'm quite impressed. Hard to believe it's free.
