Frequently asked questions

For all other questions, troubleshooting, or to report a bug, please reach out to us.
    • Does my device support Lidar scanning or Room Planning?

      If your device has a lidar sensor, then yes it does!

    • Does my device support ray tracing?

      Ray tracing is supported on iPads with M series chips and iPhones with A15 Bionic and later.

    • Does Valence 3D have uv unwrapping tools or texturing capabilities?

      Not at the moment, but they are on the roadmap. We are working hard to make modeling in Valence 3D more powerful and robust.

    • Would it be possible to try Valence 3D for a day or week before purchasing?

      The short answer is no but also yes! Valence 3D is a one time purchase instead of a subscription. Building out the subscription option would have complicated the source code and locked features behind a paywall. If you are not satisfied with Valence 3D, you can get a refund from Apple.

    • How do I select a loop in Valence 3D?

      To select a loop (regardless of face, edge, or vertex) quickly triple tap the element and Valence will try to guess the loop you want to select. If it selects the wrong loop, you can help Valence by quickly tapping on three adjacent elements.

    • Valence is showing an iCloud Error... How do I enable iCloud Drive?

      Please go to the Settings app on iOS, tap on your name, then navigate to iCloud, then enable iCloud Drive.

    • My files are disappearing? How can I fix this or work around it?

      For some users, iCloud syncing has been very problematic. If you are having issues with disappearing files, you can completely Disable iCloud in the Settings. Valence will then move your models to the local Documents Directory.

    • What units are used in Valence 3D?

      Valence 3D by default assumes everything is either unitless or in meters. When you import a 3D model Valence 3D can convert from your model units to meters (which is what is assumed). If you select meters, there is no conversion that happens. When previewing in AR if you select meters, then no conversion is made. When bringing in a room plan or lidar scan the units are meters.

    • Does my purchase unlock the iPhone & iPad version of Valence 3D?

      Yes! When you purchase Valence 3D, you get both the iPhone & iPad apps.

    • Who is the team behind Valence 3D?

      Valence 3D is a product of Hi-Rez, Inc. A one person software & design company focused on making next generation design tools for content creation and creative exploration.

    • Where can I learn more about how to use the app? Is there a Discord?

      We are working on a user manual and a series of video tutorials that will help show how the app works. There is a Discord, but it's currently not set up for a bigger group of users. Later in April the Discord will be public.

    • Is there an Android version?

      Valence 3D is only on iOS. We are working hard to make sure Valence 3D delivers the best polygon modeling experience on iOS before we tackle any other platforms.

    • Will there be an Android version?

      When Valence 3D is more stable and feature complete, work will begin on an immersive Vision Pro version, then an Android version. Valence 3D roughly took 5 years to develop. We are guessing an Android version could be built in either half or two times the amount of time.

    • Where is the knife tool, booleans, solidify modifier, and other tools I'm used to using in [Insert Your Favorite Desktop Dcc]?

      We are actively working on more modeling tools and features to help you create the sickest 3D models possible on iOS These features will roll out over 2024.

    • Is this just Blender on iOS?

      Absolutely not. Valence 3D has been built from the ground up by one person. None of Blender's source code was used or even referenced while build Valence 3D. The rendering engine was written from scratch to ensure the best performance possible.
