Gravity Sketch is a tech startup based in London, seeking to deliver intuitive digital creation experiences with a virtual reality (VR) tool that could offer benefits to the construction industry.

Gravity Sketch is a tool for communication, enabling the quick and easy creation of 3D shapes and images. The concept for the tool is to enhance ‘2D communication’ into three-dimensional VR.

The tool allows multiple users to work and communicate on the same 3D model while in different environments, on different devices, and in different parts of the world. This helps prevent the loss of information that arises when representing 3D content in 2D, and which is normally compensated for with notation.

As well as this collaborative potential, it enables users to upload traditional CAD models into Gravity Sketch. Teams can then be invited to review ideas at a one-to-one scale, or using the stroke tool users can annotate within the VR environment and share ideas in 3D.

Founded in 2014 by four graduates of the Royal College of Art, Gravity Sketch has been taken up by the James Dyson foundation, InnovationRCA and They are currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.

The Gravity Sketch team have been invited to partner with 3D printing industry leader Shapeways, enabling the app users to order their 3D prints directly from within the App, shipped in just 2 days. Furthermore, users can showcase their creations on social media and even share them in 3D with Sketchfab.
