Adobe’s VR modeling software, Substance 3D Modeler, is now obtainable on Steam, bringing with it help for Valve’s Index headset and presumably others.

In VR, customers can intuitively ‘sculpt’ 3D fashions to their liking, then pull them into the 2D mode for refinements and use with the remainder of the Substance suite (or vice versa).
When the app first launched it solely supported Meta VR headsets by way of the Oculus PC software program. Now Substance 3D Modeler has launched on Steam, bringing official help for Valve Index and its controllers for the primary time.
Ostensibly the app ought to work simply positive by way of Steam on Meta headsets as properly, and different SteamVR headsets may go with the app too, assuming customers can create the right bindings for his or her controllers (although Adobe isn’t claiming official help for another headsets presently). Sources inform us that official help for Vive wands could possibly be coming sooner or later.
