Modeling Concept Designs on the iPad Pro in Shapr3D and Concepts — Part 2

In Part 2 of our Shapr3D and Concepts skillbuilder series, Lasse Pekkala shares how to render a 3D model in Concepts.

Welcome to our skillbuilder series on 3D modeling and design rendering with Shapr3D and Concepts.

Shapr3D is a 3D modeling CAD app created just for the iPad and Apple Pencil. It pairs excellently with design apps like Concepts to create accurate models, design studies and illustrations for product designs, architectural concepts and imaginative concept art.

This is Part 2 of the skillbuilder. In Part 1, we invited Concept Designer Chris Glenn to demonstrate how he used Shapr3D to build a mini tank. Here in Part 2, we’ve handed Chris’ design to Industrial Designer Lasse Pekkala to create an artistic rendering based on the model in Concepts.

Hi Lasse, thanks for sharing about design rendering in Concepts. Can you please tell us about yourself? What is your background and what do you do?

Growing up, I was always drawn to visual arts and crafting. Painting, sculpting, building stuff, you name it. But I never imagined there would be a way to pursue my passion for all of these things professionally until my early twenties. That’s when I decided to apply for Industrial Design studies at the Lahti Institute of Design. Best decision of my life. During my studies, I got to work with distinguished Finnish consumer goods companies such as Stala and Fiskars. I’ve been working for TopHatch as a designer since I graduated in 2016.
