Lots of 3D Modeling apps have recently passed our radar, and one combining factor is that they all have been presented as ‘the 3D modeling app to bring 3D printing to the masses’. Windows released its app 3D Builder and Google brought us Build With Chrome – of course in order to promote Google’s provider Chrome.
Right now, a new 3D design app enters the market, which has – tricky – also been presented as a 3D modeling app to bring the art of 3D printing to the masses. It’s called Morphi and this is an easy-to-use 3D modeling app, that works with a handy swiping system. But will Morphi cause a definite breakthrough for 3D printing and modeling?
Well, it surely is too early to say something relevant about that, so let’s first have a look at the exact specs of the modeling app. At first, this app is presented as a user-friendly one, which uses a touchscreen-responsive approach and can be used on iPads. Users are able to create their own objects from scratch, but the app also has a variety of self-designed objects, which users can further decorate themselves. They can use modification tools in order to do so.
A user can download templates and shapes via iTunes. For the rest, they can just swipe objects into their models, change colors and all of this goes by hand, without having to use any keypad or mouse. Children who grow up with iPads might find this app easy to use, as it solely uses a touch-screen approach. Using an .STL file, users are able to export the 3D model to a 3D printer and print it out. The Morphi app can be downloaded on iTunes.
