Description: Have you ever dreamed of creating virtual worlds? But don’t know where to start or overwhelmed by 3d software’s screenfuls of buttons and knobs? Try ShapeSim, currently the easiest to use scene builder and world constructor. Simply grab an object/prop and place it to where you like it, and whichever direction you want it to face. All as natural and familiar as playing with toys in real life. Choose from hundreds of free and premium items and props ranging from furniture, vehicles, to people/animals/plants and castles. With something for everyone, realize the vision in your imagination.
Review: When a 3D design tool describes itself as “the most easy to use” you know a newbie like me with zero 3D design skills should be able to use it. But that is simply not the case with ‘ShapeSim – Construction Set’. For a start all the items you need to make your 3D world are locked behind a paywall with all the packs together costing £79.28! While the main builder is free there is almost nothing to build with making it kind of pointless. Then there is the terrible UI that I really struggled with. If you need a 3D scene builder this is not the way to go.
