uMake takes 2D sketches and renders them as 3D models on the iPad Pro

Rendering 3D drawings on iPad just got a lot easier. A new app named uMake lets designers draw two-dimensionally on an axis to render 3D images, and was created with the iPad Pro in mind.

The app also allows you to extrude and revolve sketches for a recursive effect, or quickly manipulate an array pattern.

Of course, the main pull will be the ability to sketch something in 2D and have it spit out a 3D rendering. Once you’ve sketches lines out, they can also be pulled or skewed to create a desired effect.

Because uMake can’t do it all, it allows you to export your sketches as “industry standard formats” like PNG, IGES and OBJ.

The app is free, but some features require a premium subscription, which will cost you $14.99 per month or $149.99 per year. That’s also an introductory pricing scheme; sometime after launch, pricing will be $19.99 and $199.99, respectively.
