Build basic or advanced geometry, right in Unity, with zero creative barriers. Devs agree, ProBuilder is wicked fast and incredibly easy to use- even Collision and UVs are automatically generated. Just build, and have fun!
Playtest at any time, then edit immediately, and never leave Unity. No time (or sanity) wasted.
Go advanced with complete UV unwrapping, advanced lightmap settings, optimization, and more. Or, export your models to OBJ and detail externally!
Fundamentals of Using ProBuilder
ProBuilder 101: Object Mode vs Element Mode; basic Vertex, Edge, and Face editing
Object vs Element Mode
Object Mode and Element Mode are the foundations of ProBuilder.
In Object Mode, the ProBuilder object behaves like any other Unity game object, for the most part.
In Element Mode, you can edit the individual Elements (Vertex, Edge, and Face) that compose the object’s geometry, as well as UVs and per-face textures. To begin editing an Element, simply click on it’s icon in the GUI. Clicking again on an active Element icon will return to Object Mode.
Selecting Elements is exactly the same as selecting standard Unity objects. You can click on a single Element to select it, or shift-click to add/remove from selection. Drag-select multiple Elements at once, or hold shift to add/remove from selection.
Bonus: Clicking on any face will automatically select all it’s Elements! You can also hold “shift” to add/remove the Elements to the selection.
Manipulating Elements is done with standard Unity controls, nothing new to learn here! We take pride in keeping ProBuilder simple and intuitive for all Unity users.
Simply choose the Rotate, Scale, or Move tool from Unity’s toolbar, select the Elements to manipulate, and have fun!

Basic vs Advanced
ProBuilder Basic includes the core, essential features of ProBuilder. Great for rapid prototyping and basic usage.
ProBuilder Advanced adds support for subdivision, edge-loop modeling, manual UV unwrapping, optimization, and many more advanced features. Also, a great way to say “thanks”, and support continued development of ProBuilder!
Can I use ProBuilder Basic commercially? Yes! There are zero usage restrictions for either version. Indie or pro, personal or commercial, we are simply happy to know our tools have helped your development!
Can I upgrade from Basic to Advanced? Of course- just purchase ProBuilder Advanced, and perform a standard install, the same as you would if upgrading to a new version. All your models, UVs, textures, etc, will remain the same.
