Autodesk has updated 123D Sculpt+ to add some great new functions and new starting forms, including skeletons, base shapes, and fully-textured example sculptures. Now you can use the “pose tool” to add posable joints on sculptures.
The update also comes with new materials, such as chrome to clay, enhanced Pixlr filters, and new texture brushes to work with. Once you have created your masterpiece, 123D Sculpt+ lets you check it out on the community with its Preview functionality. No more having to download the 3D model before viewing it! You’ll also be able to Export as OBJ files with textures for use in other 3D tools such as Autodesk Maya or 3ds Max.
There is a ton of stuff to check out in the update for 123D Sculpt+, so download it for free from the App Store.

Star Walk 2, by Vito Technology, aims to bring constellations to life. Users can point their iOS device at the stars and watch as the app identifies and renders 3d models of the celestial bodies that can be turned and enjoyed from different angles.
Star Walk 2 acts as your guide to the night sky by using your current location to find what stars will be visible. You can also search for specific stars, constellations, or satellites and the app will identify where you have to look to find them. Then there’s the Sky Live window, which can show you all the relevant data for your stargazing adventure including sunrise and sunset times, moon phases, and the rise and set times for 4 main planets: Venus, Mercury, Saturn, and Jupiter.
Star Walk 2 also includes functions such as coordinates on each image to make locating your favorite constellation easier, a soft red-mode that preserves your night-vision while using the app, and a Time Machine mode that allows users to see stars in their calculated past and future positions.
You can pick up Star Walk 2 for $2.99 on the App Store.

Star Admiral is unlike other collectible card games on the app store. With gorgeous 3D space ships replacing cards, players can feel more a part of the epic space struggle that is Hardscore Games ‘ upcoming release.
It will have 3 Main Races (Moxxu, Radiant Empire, and the Shadow Network), 11 mercenary factions, and over 100 unique units to keep players involved in creating their favorite fleets. The game will be free, and players won’t be able to buy units that others can’t, thus removing some of the frustrations that come with the free-to-play genre.
Star Admiral will be hitting the App Store next month on July 10.
