Various controllers will look slightly different in Gravity Sketch, depending on what VR headset you are using. Although the layout might be different, the button functions are the same.








HTC Vive/Pro Controller

Oculus Quest / Quest 2

Oculus Rift

Valve Index Knuckles

Windows Mixed Reality (WMR)

Controllers functions

Drawing hand controller: Controller with the grabbing sphere with which you will sketch, move, delete and modify objects

Non-drawing controller: Controller with blue, purple and clock button. With this controller you can  move around in space, activate settings menus, activate tools menus and move around in history.


By default, Gravity Sketch controllers are set up for right-handed users. To swap controllers for left-handed simply bump the bottoms of the controllers.


Or you can change the handedness through the settings menu by clicking the blue menu button as shown below:





Front Triggers (Index triggers): Use to create, point and select.

Hand trigger/button (Grab triggers): Use to grab, move, rotate, and change the size of objects and the sketch.


Non-drawing hand: use the thumbstick to reverse in history of the latest actions.


Drawing hand: use the thumbstick to increase the size of the grab sphere and the size of the stroke.

When in edit mode, use this thumbstick to change the selection mode of SubD objects and edit points directions of strokes.

Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) and HTC Vive/Pro Controllers have the thumbstick functions available on the purple touchpad and Color Wheel touchpad.

Blue button

This button serves as:

  • The Menu button where you can access the options and settings.
  • The Edit Menu button when grabbing and pressing the button.

Red button
