Javier Edo
forger is a digital sculpting and texture painting application for the artist who wants to be able to work on the go. forger lets you sculpt and texture paint while you are on the train, sitting on the couch, or waiting in a queue.

Featuring an intuitive multitouch interface, many sculpting brushes, powerful remeshing capabilities, the ability to import/export OBJ files, a desktop-class brush system, and many other awesome features, now thanks to forger you can sketch out ideas anywhere you go.

File I/O
Save your scenes to the internal scene format and use the popular OBJ file format to import or export new models or base meshes, Alembic file import is supported too.

Brushes
With many brushes to choose from; standard, clay, flatten, move, pull, smooth, pinch, inflate, crease, scrape, polish, planar, layer, stamp and mask. You will always find the one you need for the right task, each brush has an alternate function that does even more! Use custom stamps (alphas) to finish your models.
forger has a desktop-class brush engine that allows you to be able to do anything you would in a regular Desktop sculpting application, without compromises, whether you're after using brush images, need jitters or want to do smooth strokes, you no longer need to compromise your workflow for using a mobile app.

Professional concept sculpting
With two powerful remeshing algorithms (volume based remeshing and edge-flow topological remeshing), the ability to cap holes, slice, split and merge sub-meshes; doing concept sculpting on a mobile device is no longer a dream.

Multi-resolution meshes
Increase the resolution of the model by multiplying the number of faces by four, whilst keeping the previous (coarser) version of the mesh as another sub-level. Step back and forth between levels to do big changes or work on details. Rebuild subdivision levels on previously subdivided meshes if importing from another software and carry on with forger!

Partial mesh visibility
Hiding parts of the model you are working on will help you focus on your sculpture, and getting to hard to reach areas.

Masks
Control the areas your brushes can affect by masking them. Masking will make sculpting in delicate areas easier.

Sculpt layers
Work in a non destructive manner by creating layers per sub-level for quick concepting and adjusting their intensities for different results.

Advanced stylus & external keyboard support
Users can choose whether they want brushes to be affected by pressure in strength or size. Users that are used to sculpting & texturing softwares will feel at home with keyboard support, allowing them to skip the learning stage of the app due to the very common shortcuts found in known Desktop 3D digital content creation tools.

Texture Painting
Texture painting capabilities can also be added through an In-App Purchase, several texture channels (baseColor/metalness/roughness) can be created and multiple layers can be used for each channel, along with layer blending modes, masks, mask stacks, adjustment layers, forger texture painting tools have a Desktop-class brush system.

What's new in version 1.6.28
-Now allowing simultaneous pinch/drag gestures for touch based navigation instead of only image projection.
-Added Apple Pencil custom double tap support.
-Added "quick selection" shortcut. (navigation shortcut + tap mesh changes selection)
-Improved non-manifold mesh checks now catching more possible errors.
-Added wireframe display support for texture painting mode.
-Added “Invert Transform” action to Transform tool. (resets the model and its pivot to the origin)
-Now materials can be assigned via drag & drop.
-Avoids Alembic file related crashes when trying to import broken files, now errors will be shown instead.
-Fixed a possible issue where if an external file being referenced was deleted by the user before saving the scene, it wouldn’t be stored along with it, now a temp copy of referenced files is stored internally to avoid this. (seen in painting context)
-Other small fixes and improvements.
