    Hey, Marc. Yeah I'm aware of those options, but:

    1. Cinema 4D Lite is not exactly "lite" as in "easy-to-learn". It still has a very, very steep learning curve — and it's overkill when all you need is to design 3D user interfaces.Cinema 4D is designed to do much, much more than we actually need in a 3D tool.

    2. Adobe Dimension CC is very easy to use and approachable, but actually it doesn't allow users to do 3D modeling. It's just about rendering pre-made models and apply textures and materials to them. At least that's how it worked last time I tested it.

    3. Cheetah 3D seems like the best tool in the market in terms of both price and being easy to use. BUT it's still a tool that is designed specifically for 3D modelers/illustrators/etc.

    I think there's a BIG opportunity for a "3D Sketch" in the market. I thought maybe Vectary could be the one, but this subscription model thing is getting more and more hostile to the final consumer in my opinion — specially now that every single app tries to shove subscriptions down your throat.

    If you're like me you're probably already paying a small fortune monthly for stuff that 5 years ago would just ask me a honest flat fee.

    I know, I know... business wise it probably makes sense for the ones developing those tools. But I honestly think that will backfire at some point. There's a dangerous threshold that's starting to show up in the horizon. I believe this subscription model not only lock up people to their current tools... it also prevents people to try new stuff (like Vectary).

    Seems like a lovely tool. Designers really need something like this, but $240.00 every year for a single app is crazy expensive in my opinion.

    I wonder when Adobe will add an user-friendly 3D tool to their Creative Cloud suit of apps. That would certainly force competition to rethink their price strategies.

    The thing Sketch needs the most is some sort of advanced symbol manager. Some sort of UI that allows us to manage, rename, edit, organize symbols from one or multiple Sketch files.

    The text was delightfully self-aware, funny and dangerously pseudo-sarcastic, I was loving it... but it falls apart in the very end when (for some reason) the author felt the need to explain he was joking.

    Noob question: how do I run it?

    I love it. The only problem with these illustrations is that conflicts with the overall generic-and-too-clean look of Dropbox. I think using bolder fonts and brighter colors somewhere in the UI would help.

    I'm doing it manually. It's taking forever. I think it'll be worth it, though.
