Concepts 5.10 for iOS Release - Sketch in Perspective

July 2021 Update

Sketch buildings, urban landscapes and product designs in perspective with new 1-, 2- and 3-point perspective grids in Concepts 5.10 for iOS.

Sketch products, buildings, elevations and urban landscapes in perspective with new 1-, 2- and 3-point perspective grids in Concepts 5.10 for iOS. With our Align to Grid drawing guide, it's simple and quick to draw structures in correct perspective. 

  • Open the Precision Menu and tap the Grid options, or find the grids under Settings > Grid. Tap your grid, then activate it in the Precision menu.
  • Tap Edit Grid to customize your grid's line weight, color, density and opacity.
  • Activate the Grid Layer to move your horizon line and set up your vanishing points - just tap+drag the horizon line and vanishing points to move them. Also angle the horizon line with the rotation control. (Grid rotation for all grids is new this release!)
  • Use Align to Grid to draw with the perspective guides, or use a pen at 100% smoothing to draw your own straight lines.
  • Try the new Allow Turns setting in the Snap menu to turn while drawing with the grid guides.
  • From a previous release, remember you can now move the grid layer above your drawing or photos for easier reference with the grid.

See a release preview of the features here, and below, we've shared some resources to help you start sketching with the perspective grids. Whether you're a beginner or pro, these tutorials will offer insights and exercises to help you master the basics of perspective sketching with both traditional and digital guides.
