With the ability to let users explore and communicate their ideas directly in 3D though AR and VR, few design tools have come along in recent memory that is as unique as Gravity Sketch. Designed to be intuitive in a VR or Mixed Reality workflow before sending over to a more robust CAD program, the tool is ideal for early-stage concept exploration in automotive, architecture, product design, and engineering applications.
Among others who have adopted the new design sketching tool into their workflow is NYC-based industrial designer Nicholas Baker, a Savannah College of Art and Design who regularly updates videos of his VR sketches to his Instagram feed.
“The world needs better products built from the ground up,” explains the designer. “I dismantle objects, distill them, and reconstruct them, inventing elegant solutions along the way.”
While his entire Instagram feed is worth a gander, his VR sketches completed in Gravity Sketch via an Oculus Rift headset get us the most excited. Here are ten of Nick’s best VR product design sketching posts:
lil twin prop idea. I promise I’ll get to real CAD eventually, it’s just so much more fun in VR #blowingwithcs . . . made with @oculusrift and @gravitysketch song Darling by Esbe . . #oculus #oculusrift #design #vr #virtualreality #vrdesign #vrsketching #industrialdesign #productdesign #conceptart #3dmodel #gravitysketch #fan
