It’s Time To Inventory Cubify’s Apps #3dthursday

Apps landing top banner

The Fabbaloo blog took stock of the web apps released by Cubify in the past year and shared a list to help you dive into the many options:

Over the past year Cubify has periodically released web apps for you to create customized designs. Some of the apps permit download of STL files for printing on your home 3D printer, and we suspect Cubify is hoping you’ll do it on your Cube 3D printer, even though the STL models could print on other printers, too. Other apps render much more complex, color objects that you can send to Cubify’s print service for production on commercial-level equipment.

But at this point there are so many apps doing so many things we thought we’d better prepare a list for you.

First, apps that provide downloadable STL for personal 3D printing:


Cubify Draw: an iOS app permitting children to finger-draw a shape that is transformed into a simple 3D object.


Party Glasses: a selection of funky glasses, best printed in the wildest color possible.

Love notes

Cubify Love Notes: Valentine-ish notes in 3D form, obviously only printable in red plastic.

Cubify pics

Cubify Pics: Upload a high-contrast picture and have it transformed into a slightly-3D shape, suitable for printing.


Cubify Rings: A wide selection of customizable ring components can be mixed together to get what you want: your own Super Bowl ring, perhaps.


Cubify Bracelets: Customized bracelets, one of the easiest and most effective 3D prints possible on low-end personal machines.

And check out many more at Fabbaloo.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
