Gravity Sketch is a new, free 3D design app for iPad. It’s super accessible and fun to use. It’s also fully integrated with Sketchfab so we figured we’d team up with them for a cool community challenge: create a Steampunk Vehicle.

Take a look at how it works:


  1. €50 gift card (provided by Gravity Sketch) + 6 months of Sketchfab PRO
  2. 3 months of Sketchfab PRO

In addition, we’ll share the winners on our blog and on social media.

How to participate

  • Download Gravity Sketch to your iPad and discover its features with these video tutorials.
  • Create a steampunk vehicle using Gravity Sketch and upload it through their Sketchfab integration.
  • Optional: fine-tune your model in our 3D editor by updating the
    materials and processing.
  • Tag your entry with ‘GravityPunk’.
  • Submit your entry before Sunday April 10, 23:59 GMT.

Great, looking forward to seeing all these hand sketched vehicles.
I'm working on this one at the moment. What do you guys think?

Hey pretty cool! You're a fast one :smiley:
I love the small guns, maybe you want to try to model some flying bullets and muzzle flash fx as well and see if that works. Might make it look a bit more "in action"!
Is it made for landing on water? I think so because of the small skis :smile:
