Sketch out those 3D design ideas you have on Surface Duo.

What you need to know

  • Sketch 360, a Microsoft Garage app that originally launched on Windows 10, is now available for Surface Duo.
  • The app allows you to quickly sketch out 360-degree panoramic drawings for ideas related to 3D design, VR, or just for fun.
  • Surface Duo is available now starting at $1,400.

Sketch 360, a Microsoft Garage app that made its debut on Windows 10, is now available for Surface Duo. The app's creator, Michael Scherotter, announced its Google Play launch on Twitter, noting Sketch 360 has been something of a "passion project" in recent years.

Sketch 360 is an app designed to help you quickly draw out ideas you may have for 3D spaces. The app projects your drawings against the inside of a sphere, with you at its center. The goal is to give you a space to try out ideas that might that you might not be ready to fully model out.

From Sketch 360's description on Google Play:

Whether you are an architect, a VR designer, an urban sketcher, a 3D game designer or a 360 video producer, you can easily construct an accurate sketch from a single viewpoint that's easily shareable online using Sketch 360.

This version of Sketch 360 is fully optimized for Duo with support for the pressure-sensitive Surface Pen. However, it will also work with other Android devices. Sketches can also be exported to Facebook, Adobe Lightroom, Kuula, and VR Media Player.

If you want to give Sketch 360 a try on your Surface Duo, you can download the app for free now from Google Play.
