Creating a 3D model collaboratively in virtual reality

Creating a 3D model in VR isn’t as revolutionary as it once was. 

If the presence of Quill and Medium on the Oculus Rift weren’t enough, Google’s own Gravity Sketch, Tilt Brush, and Blocks programs add to the ever-increasing library of software which wants to make the craft more accessible.

Now we have MasterpieceVR, another tool which seeks to ease 3D modelers into the medium while making them look a tad wacky flailing their arms about. It has over 20 tools which include abilities to Add, Erase, Shrink, Bulge, Smooth, and Pinch your creations, as well as volumetric sculpting and ribbon painting options. But that’s not where its individuality truly lies.

Unlike the other programs I mentioned, MasterpieceVR diminishes the comical effect of sculpting in VR by allowing four people to work on the same project at any given time.

And, guess what? They don’t even have to be in the same room! As long as they have their headsets on and controllers ready, four sculptors can join in the virtual sandbox and collaborate; no matter where in the world they are. This idea could be a godsend for those who find their best ideas while in the bathroom!
