Archipad is a new iPad sketching app by Urban Design that’s ideal for architects, interior and product designers. While there are many sketching apps on the market, what makes Archipad unique is that it’s scale aware. Once you set the scale of your drawing sheet, the drawings will be completely scaled to the real world, even down to the line thickness.
In addition, Archipad has many other features that cater to architects and designers, including layer rotations, shape and freehand drawing tools and more. Archipad is easy enough to use for professionals and non-professionals alike. Similarly, it has a tiered pricing structure—it’s free to download for small projects. As projects become more complex, the user can buy a subscription for however long or short they need the app for. Download it here.
