Morphi Offers 3D Design for 3D Printing On the Go #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Here is a short extract from SolidSmack’s interview with the team behind the new 3D design for 3D printing iPad app Morphi:

SolidSmack: Where do you think this app will be most used?

Morphi can be used by anyone anywhere and this is perhaps the most unique feature of the app. We created Morphi specifically for touchscreen tablets because we wanted people of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels to design directly with touch – without being encumbered by a mouse, having to carry around a laptop or be stuck at a desktop all day. In designing Morphi, we were also inspired by the global tradition of creating with hands and wanted a more tactile experience for users than what current modeling programs provide.

In Morphi, people can design on the go – inside, outside, while in transit (train, bus, subway, boat), in the park, at school, in class, at work, while waiting on a line, at the beach, on a mountain top), etc. Users can save directly to the device so they do not need WiFi access to use the app (they do however need internet when they want to export their models for 3d printing). The app is currently available for iPad and iPad mini and we’re also scaling to android tablets and possibly other operating systems. We’re currently in late stage development on our android app, which should be completed, in the next few weeks/months. We’ll keep you posted!

Morphi can also be used whether or not the user has a 3D printer. We believe in 3D thinking – that everyone can benefit from designing + modeling in three dimensions – whether they want to better understand/explain concepts, principles or ideas or want to make printable models….

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! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. 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.
