Move over expensive trace paper— Morpholio just launched a new augmented reality feature to its flagship Trace app that makes it easier than ever to turn your iPad into a digital drafting board. Released after the launch of Apple’s iOS 11, the updated Trace app now offers a “Perspective Finder” tool that superimposes scaled grids on any image to let anyone draw a perspective drawing like a pro. The “AR Perspective Finder” was revealed alongside “AR Color Capture”, an augmented reality real-life color sampler, for the Board app. Developed for architects and designers, Trace is a drawing app that merges analog and digital by making it easy to accurately sketch and notate on a tablet. The two recently released features were made possible with ARKit, iOS 11’s new framework that lets developers create augmented reality experiences for the iPhone and iPad. “Drawing is experiencing a renaissance with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil,” says Anna Kenoff, Morpholio Co Founder. “Our app puts scale drawing at the center of the experience, letting designers work intuitively with an iPad Pro and their hands while not losing any accuracy in the process.” Using AR Perspective Finder is easy: once the iPad’s camera is launched in Trace , the new feature automatically overlays a perspective grid that the user can rotate to his or her liking. The grid modules can be scaled to different sizes and then locked in location to a vanishing point so that the user can rotate or move the iPad without losing the grid’s placement. Once an image has been captured, AR Perspective Finder lets you fade the photograph to make sketches more legible. Paired with an Apple Pencil, the app lets user draw crisp, clean, and accurate lines of different lengths and colors.

It comes with Color Seed, a color-themed search feature that pulls up a catalogue of furnishings that match the sampled color. + Morpholio

Stencil was recently unveiled as the latest pro feature of Trace , Morpholio’s popular smartphone app that makes digital drawing a cinch with tools that allow users to draw on top of imported images, layer comments, and seamlessly collaborate on digital sketches with a global team. Stencil builds upon those features and lets you capture a real-life texture, pattern, or shape with your smartphone camera or tablet and turn it into a stencil for a multilayered drawing. “Creating stencils sits perfectly between the architect’s sketch and the quick photo,” explains Mark Collins, Co-creator. “You’re trying to capture something – a texture, pattern, or detail that you want to use. Sketching is great, but slow. Taking a photo buries it in the photo album. Generating a stencil automatically creates an incredible tool that you can utilize in various ways. The stencil is the quickest path to distill an image into an actionable idea.” Related: See How This Handy New App Lets You Create Design Concepts Right on Your Smartphone Custom digital stencils in the Trace app can be used with a full color palette and different drawing textures and types, including pencil, charcoal, marker, and brush. Final drawings can be exported to scale as PDF or uploaded to the cloud or social media. The Stencil feature and the Trace app are currently only available for iOS and can be downloaded for free with purchasable pro features in the App Store. + Morpholio + Morpholio Trace App Images via Morpholio
