While working from home over the past few months, the iPad Pro has become an essential part of my daily life. As I explored more ways to use this awesome device for more tasks, I came across an app called Shapr3D. This app is a game-changer for me and has become my favorite CAD program to use for furniture design.

    Watching Harry Potter while working? 🤘

    Shapr3D run in ipad 7 ?

  3. PNWMike62 on August 30, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Wow! Thanks so much for putting this together. I’ve just recently retired and am finally getting time in the shop to start building again. I have all the same issues you have with paper/pencil and having to sit at the desk to draw designs. Love the idea of being able to do this on the iPad. This product seems to have more tools in the dimensioning area that a woodworker would love. I’m downloading it now. I hope the Free version will get me started. Wondering how you deal with it only allowing 2 designs? Guess we’ll see. Thanks again.

    I’m the sort of person that get scared by the thought of CAD but hopefully this will make things easier for me

  5. Desiree Espinosa on August 30, 2022 at 12:48 am

    You worked very hard on this video series. I appreciate it and I hope your other viewers do as well. Of fingers crossed… advertisements. Good luck

  6. Ferry Sandria on August 30, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Do you have recomendation apps 3d design for 1time purcase..?

  7. Maila Loomy on August 30, 2022 at 12:49 am

    I am sure you will find a good way to do this on the Woodprix website.

  8. 이지은 on August 30, 2022 at 12:51 am


    I was actually like, what?
    Did he read my mind

  9. Bredli on August 30, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Does this app only work on the iPad Pro or does it work with other models too?

  10. KD Techniques Official on August 30, 2022 at 12:52 am

    I was afraid of drawing 3D but after watching your video, it gave me strength to try out this particular app on iPad.

  11. Leah Wissuwa on August 30, 2022 at 12:54 am

    Is the program free?

  12. V. Cole on August 30, 2022 at 12:56 am

    I need to convince my teacher that house design is better and faster on tablet , this will help so much to explain.

  13. lomoDaniel on August 30, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Is this app able to communicate with CAM programs? I use a cnc plasma and router and would like to ramp up my design.

  14. B on August 30, 2022 at 1:01 am

    Can your render with it?

  15. DAMNED SHARP KNIVES on August 30, 2022 at 1:01 am

    Excellent video, and thank you for explaining how the app benefits your workflow.

    I’m worn out trying to get AutoCAD for iPad and Adobe CAD to do what I want them to do… they really really suck and free flowing curves and limit me soooo much! Augh! 🙁
    Do I seem frustrated? LOL

    I thought it was just a gimmicky toy, but now I’m going to give Shaper 3D a try and see if I can design a new knife and sheath in less time and less headaches.

    Thank you again for the motivation!

  16. sochyvonn nora on August 30, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Yes…draw it out and just throw away. that is so funny

  17. PG Tips on August 30, 2022 at 1:08 am

    You spent 8:15 mins wagging your tongue before actually doing a demo.

  18. Yusuf Abid on August 30, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Which CAD software you used on your computer for furniture designing?

  19. GaryR55 on August 30, 2022 at 1:09 am

    You’re very lucky to have this technology. When I began doing drafting (1977), CAD wasn’t yet available. I didn’t start using CAD until 1989, with Autocad 3.1. I now have SketchUp on my iPad. I also have Shapr 3D, though I don’t currently have it installed. Maybe, with your tutorials, I’ll reinstall it. 🙂

  20. David Miller on August 30, 2022 at 1:09 am

    I’m designing a roof for my wood deck, and this app looks just right for me. I did some restoration to my 10 year old deck. The location is complicated, so the roof needs to be designed carefully. Thanks for making this video. I have the new iPad Air 4th generation. I can’t afford the Apple Pencil. Do you have a recommendation for a less expensive pencil?

  21. дмитрий климов on August 30, 2022 at 1:10 am

    без деталировки, не вижу смысла платить

  22. Racheal Finck on August 30, 2022 at 1:11 am

    I have a question and I’m hoping someone in here can help me. I am wanting to start furniture flipping, I am looking for an app where I can take a photo of existing furniture in my shop and edit the color, hardware, and add on designs so that I can make renderings for my clients

  23. Ferry Sandria on August 30, 2022 at 1:11 am

    But most of the best ipad apps need subcription paymen..not one time purchase 🥴

  24. Eetu p on August 30, 2022 at 1:14 am

    Thats it. Im buying an ipad.

  25. Ashton Quincey on August 30, 2022 at 1:15 am

    I really want the iPad mini for work and browsing but I also want to use it for wood projects I do. What are your thoughts about doing this on an iPad mini. Would it still have ease of use or should I just go with the iPad Pro for the bigger screen?

  26. Kinu Grove on August 30, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Just got my new iPad mini so glad I found this video.

  27. pushinpositivity on August 30, 2022 at 1:16 am

    I really appreciate the introduction this is just what I was looking for.

  28. CarlYota on August 30, 2022 at 1:17 am

    So am I correct that the free version only lets you locally store two projects at any time? And to save more you have to render them down to low quality images? Basically like a photoshop that can store two .psd in the program (not as files) and save everything else as low quality .jpg?

    That seems completely non functional. That’s not viable software even for a hobbyist. That’s a demo. Literally a demo. And that’s fine. Nobody owes me affordable hobbyist 3D design software.

    So the actual software is just expensive eternal payment pro level business software. I wish I had a successful business so my customers could pay for my hobby.

  29. Magdiel on August 30, 2022 at 1:17 am

    Where buy this pencil?

  30. iphone tujuh on August 30, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Amazing videos 👍

  31. Fejemar Mantilla on August 30, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Is that app is free?

  32. Kiran SB on August 30, 2022 at 1:19 am

    TBH, @9:01 I hit subscribe

  33. DannyB1954 on August 30, 2022 at 1:23 am

    new to Apple products. This video very helpful in choosing a Cadd program. Thanks.

  34. PG Tips on August 30, 2022 at 1:24 am

    Too much philosophical reasoning and talk about why you need the app and not enough just getting to the point and showing what the app can do. Just get to the point, I’m busy! 🙂

  35. Eva Benko on August 30, 2022 at 1:25 am

    Hi! Congratulations, great video, you inspire people! My question is does this work also with Apple Air 4?

  36. Michael Chilton on August 30, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Thank you huge help

  37. АТЕЛЬЕ ГЕРМЕС on August 30, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Супер! спасибо вам большое. теперь тоже так буду проектировать мебель

  38. Ing Teck Wee on August 30, 2022 at 1:26 am

    I like the skin of your Apple Pen. How to get it?

  39. aaron koh on August 30, 2022 at 1:27 am

    …. Now to get a new IPad Pro with the pencil !! 😅. It looks awesome to use. Thanks for your thought process and clear explanation. The app owners should be paying you. One more thing, apart from the colours differentiation I saw in your other video on the paid version. Could you further explain more features on the paid version? Thanks 🙏 😘

  40. Meng Zhao on August 30, 2022 at 1:28 am

    Thank you! It’s really helpful!

  41. deorro on August 30, 2022 at 1:28 am

    this is the first time ive ever heard about u, but based on how u started this video i just wanna say screw anyone that hates on you for making review videos lol u a legend for this video tho , so detailed and well explained. good stuff 👌🏼

  42. Myles Thomson on August 30, 2022 at 1:29 am

    Thanks for this. I only just discovered this app and after seeing this I can see it works how I want/need it to work.

  43. ondskabenselv on August 30, 2022 at 1:31 am

    You should try a wireless trackball. Logitech have a great option (MX Ergo, I think).

  44. JGW Goran Jelenić on August 30, 2022 at 1:32 am

    This program is not avaible on android?

  45. edwin11373 on August 30, 2022 at 1:34 am

    I like this app. The only thing I find as a drawback is that the paid version is subscription based which I detest. But I guess for professionals who are making money from it, I think it’s a very useful powerful app.

  46. Djs Construction on August 30, 2022 at 1:34 am

    You just took go slow maybe I understand something

  47. Gratitude on August 30, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Thank man. Very informative. I have similar problem like you when it comes down to design on paper. I will give the app a try.

  48. ChippedPonies on August 30, 2022 at 1:39 am

    I have migrated to Shapr3d for Windows on my Wacom not just for 3d printing (& some day my own CNC), but for making 1:12 miniature furniture in cardstock, etc… on my Cricut Maker… the layout ability helps make efficient use of arranging my pieces on my cardstock. It was watching you & your beautiful furniture that turned up my light bulb.

  49. 멘토르석사 on August 30, 2022 at 1:40 am

    Is there a soften rounden degrees and corners feature in this app?

  50. Kevin Duke on August 30, 2022 at 1:42 am

    great video – you have an awesome natural enthusiastic presentation style – thanks – will try the free version for sure !
