Can I use 3D objects from the Procreate Model pack for my own work to sell online?

The 3D objects in the downloadable Procreate Model pack are not available for any form of commercial use. You are welcome to paint on them and share your work on social media, but you cannot use any of the Model pack objects for your own licensing or sale. This includes any and all private or commercial sales.

We removed layer opacity from Adjustments in Procreate 5X. But, you can still adjust opacity on the Layer itself. Do this by either tapping two fingers on the layer or tapping Blending Mode on the layer.

In Procreate 5.2 you can paint on imported 3D models, but you can’t create your own 3D models in Procreate.
