Oculus is making good on promises to continually improve Medium, its VR sculpting tool, based on user feedback. Its first update debuts today with some significant improvements, such as the the ability to use reference images in your creative process.

According to Oculus, reference images were one of Medium's most-requested features. Medium now includes a standard reference image collection that includes basic shapes, anatomy, guides and stickers, to help inform your drawing and sculpting. You can also import your own images.
