Trace Technologies

  • Drag’n’Fly

    Drag’n’Fly allows users to literally put a live 3D model into their Trace sketches, create infinite views and then, automatically generate the perspective grids to draw over.

  • AR Perspective Finder

    This new drawing tool lets users uncover virtual perspective grids, to scale, anywhere — making complex sketching easy and accessible.

  • ScalePen

    ScalePen checks the drawing scale and zoom level continuously to automatically assign a calibrated set of technical pens. The result - an array of perfect pen sizes that dynamically responds as you move around, through and into the drawing.

  • Stencil

    Stencil automatically turns any image you can find, make or take into a custom template in seconds. Simply find or capture a photo, set the contrast or invert, and transform it into a stencil that is forever at your disposal.
