Blokify Updates iOS App with Tools to Learn How to Design #3DThursday #3DPrinting


Blokify Updates iOS App with Play Packs: tools to learn how to design:

Blokify released an update to their free building app that will turn you into a master builder. The update replaces Kits with Play Packs and is available in the iTunes App Store. “The biggest thing we added in this update is changing how Kits work,” said Jenny Kortina, founder at Blokify. “We renamed them to Play Packs and instead of just loading a model when you click on it, you are guided through how to build that model. We also added a tutorial and a new play pack ‘New Blok City’.”

To access the Play Packs, click the blok icon in the upper/right-hand corner of the screen. Then choose Play Packs. There are four different Play Packs: Castle Mountain, Space Platform, Pirate Sea and New Blok City. Each Play Pack has three different models. There’s one model in Castle Mountain that includes a walk-through tutorial. This is a great place to start if you are new to Blokify and Play Packs.

Like the rest of the Blokify app, the Play Packs are easy-to-use. This is a kid-friendly app that will teach kids about 3D modeling and design. The Play Packs teach you how to build the model. For each step, Blokify displays blue bloks as a guide for a moment. Then you place a real blok to replace each blue blok.

Each correctly placed blok is rewarded with a burst of stars. If you misplace a blok, it appears with a red x. You can always receive a hint if you’re unsure where a blok goes. Don’t use too many hints because the more hints you use, the fewer diamonds you earn….

Use your imagination to create your own objects and 3D print your objects to bring them into the physical world. More information on this can be found here.

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.
