Blocks- Google’s new VR art app that lets you create 3D models easily

By : |July 7, 2017 0

In a bid to boost VR adoption, Google has developed Blocks, a VR app that lets you easily create beautiful 3D objects in no time and is available for free for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift .

Blocks is very simple to use for anyone, even those who have no prior modeling experience. It feels more like playing with children’s blocks than working with traditional 3D modeling software. Blocks takes the simplicity of Tilt Brush and injects it into 3D object modeling, letting users build, export and share their cool little creations on the web.




One big complaint that people have about VR titles is their lack of visual fidelity given the processing power needed to handle even the most basic experiences. Blocks plays off these shortcomings to its benefits, allowing the developers a chance to build simple polygonal objects quickly and export them to VR apps they’re building. With Blocks you can place and then edit basic shapes to make 3D models with greater ease.

This app seems to be going for a lower level of realism than Oculus’s Medium which is developed as a sculpting tool. Blocks is designed for developers and inexperienced users rather than any artists so the app appears more friendly than Medium as found by many users.
