New Design Studio Option Added

So I've been trying to do more research on programs for drawing since I feel that's what we really need to get the site going more. I found a website that had a drawing program called sketchpad and while it sounds basic it's very easy to use and has a lot of neat tools. Basically I've added a tab for this new program on the design studio page. It offers a lot of stuff like patterns, gradients, stands, text, and other neat tools. I'd encourage you all to try it and give me your opinions. I also contacted them about working to make a custom program for the website since their site mentioned they are looking for business partners. That could be a MAJOR improvement for us if I can make that happen somehow. For now like I said we have their version added to the website and I've also made a how to video to make it easier to understand. If you all have questions let me know, Enjoy!

Excited about all the changes and am trying things out. So far I have been unable to get onto Sketchpad from the site and have had no luck downloading it. I'll keep trying though. lion

I'm currently talking with their team to see about possibly setting up a custom version for our site, giving us our own design studio. I'll probably need to do a fundraiser for it though so that it can be afforded.

@Mykelbe I don't think Sketchpad 4.0 has a download option. It seems to be only browser based. This is how I got it to work.

Open Sketchpad. Here's the website if you want a wider view: https://sketch.io/sketchpad/ 

Click the Open and Create button, then click Open in the drop down menu. The window displays "Sketchpad has not configured to your browser." Click the Setup button. Give it permission to save by clicking enable saving. Click Back to go to the work space. Note: You don't have to worry about saving because it will save automatically.

 In first time use, click the Open and Create button to Import the model. 

On the Open page, it will display an image of your files. Click on the settings above the image to Delete, Duplicate or Rename it. To open a file, click on the image and then Open.

If you clear your browser's cache it will delete all files from Sketchpad also. You will have to configure it to your browser again.

May this help you and others that are having issues.

I had tried it in the browser on its own first and had to enable saving and from then on it worked on our website in the studio, but you may have to do that directly on their site first I'm not fully sure. Either way hopefully we will have our own custom version soon.

Yeah. I had to enable it on my computer because it was stuck on a loading screen when I tried to import the model. It would be good to have our own version. Maybe, it could be similar to the Girlsense Studio.

@Shelli I showed the guy an example of their studio to see what he could do so hopefully I hear back on that soon!

That's cool. Some of the stamps remind me of the ones in GS. That's why I suggested it. If the guy can code the model template into the program so we don't have to import, it would be a great feature.

Finally got to design something, I used Sumo I'll try out the others. But finally Sumo is able to upload the HD models without freezing up. It worked :) Thank you. That was one of the main problems I had with sumo.
