This panel shows any images or directories found in the "images/" folder of the app.

You can place any images you want to use to project with to this folder via Apple's "Files" app or by dropping images onto the panel from any other application. (ie: Safari)

Any images contained in this panel can be dragged to the viewport to use in conjunction with the Project Paint Brush when the app is in "painting" context, or dragged to the viewport to create an ImagePlane with them to use as reference background images when the app is in "sculpting" context.


Camera and Photo Library pictures can be used, upon selection or picture taken, they will be copied and shrunk when stored inside forger for projection, to avoid users from attempting to project unnecessarily large files and to minimize scene file storage.

Extras ( In-App Purchases )

forger allows buying some extra functionality or assets from this section via In-App Purchases (IAP).

In order to buy In-App Purchases, you will need a valid AppStore account and internet connection at the time of the purchase.

Occasional internet connection may be needed for further validation in successive runs as forger may occasionally check AppStore purchase receipts.


iOS11 allows changing something that is outside of the control of forger that can affect In-App Purchases, if you are having trouble getting the texturing IAP to work please check that the application storage location has not been changed in the Settings app.

Try this:
+ Open the Settings app.
+ Go to forger.
+ Set storage to “Local Storage”.
+ Reinstall the app and/or reboot for good measure.
+ Open the app and restore the purchase.
+ Texturing features should be available.

If it isn’t set to “Local Storage” the purchase receipt will not be stored on the device and as a result you won’t be able to paint.
