forger is a digital sculpting and painting application for the artist who wants to be able to work on the go. forger lets you sculpt while you are on the train, sitting on the couch, or waiting in a queue.
Featuring an intuitive multitouch interface, many sculpting brushes, the ability to import/export OBJ files, powerful remeshing capabilities, and many other awesome features, now thanks to forger you can sketch out ideas anywhere you go.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Control the areas your brushes can affect by masking them. Masking will make sculpting in delicate areas easier.
Work in a non destructive manner by creating layers per sub-level for quick concepting and adjusting their intensities for different results.
Advanced stylus support
Applying different pressure on the device with the supported stylus will have different effect on the mesh. Currently supported stylus are: Apple Pencil, Wacom Creative Stylus and Pogo Connect. Use their buttons as navigation shortcuts (orbit/pan).
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, forger texture painting tools have a Desktop-class brush system.

-Added new “Auto Retopo” feature that attempts to automagically create topologically clean, quad dominant meshes out of any mesh.
-Improved quick volume-based remeshing results, generated meshes are much cleaner now.
-Improved “Make Symmetrical…”, now avoids thin faces around the symmetry axis.
-Added a way to extract thick submeshes from masks. (useful for clothes, props/parts)
-Added quick Soften/Sharpen mask shortcuts, previously only available through menu.
-Added “smooth stroke“ mode for sculpting brushes, where sensible.
-Added new navigation mode that allows using touch input for navigation and Apple Pencil for sculpting/painting.
-Added a way to store sculpt brush presets in different user-created preset collections. (iPad only)
-Added file menu extra data and different sorting methods. (alphabetical/date/size)
-Fixes ImagePlane disappearing when sculpting objects way off the origin.
-Fixes locked navigation buttons being silently unlocked after gestures: pinch (zoom) or two finger drag (pan) action, now they will visibly unlock.
-Minor UI improvements.
