Today, we’re excited to announce Studio Share—a new feature in Oculus Medium that lets you and a friend sculpt in the same virtual space!

While you work simultaneously on your own sculpts, you can share tips and tricks, show off your skills, and get feedback on your art in real time. You can even record your session or take selfies to share on the Oculus Forum.

Professional artists can use Studio Share for uniquely interactive creative reviews—to talk through designs, get a quick sense of scale, or experiment with camera angles.

Studio Share is currently in beta, and we look forward to your feedback.

Online Inspiration
We added a “Featured Artist” section on the Medium webpage, where we’ll highlight a diverse roster of artists.

Check back each month to dive into new galleries as you brainstorm your next sculpt!

Practical Upgrades
We’re also introducing a number of new tools that make it easier than ever to sculpt in VR:

  • Move Tool—Grab and adjust parts of your sculpt without sacrificing fine detail
  • Reference Meshes—Import 3D meshes for reference or use our preloaded samples
  • Color Picker Eyedropper and Palettes—Use the eyedropper to select the exact color you want from a reference image, and explore our new color palettes
  • Manipulators—Rotate and scale objects and layers precisely along axes
  • Sculpt Origin—Set your sculpt’s position, orientation, and size for consistent exporting
