Free 3D Builder App Lauches with Kinect Integration, Now in the MIcrosoft Store #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning

Microsoft’s 3D Printing team shared this tech demo of free 3D Builder App, launched yesterday, showing the workflow for creating full-color 3D scanned reproductions using the Kinect:

Using the 3D Builder app and the Kinect sensor to create a 3D reconstruction and prepare it for a 3D printer.

3D Builder App

In addition to downloading the 3D printing SDK, we strongly recommend that you also download the free 3D Builder app from the Microsoft store. The 3D Builder app is a modern application that allows a user to either use models that are included with the app, or to import models from the Internet.

The 3D Builder app also includes many model visualization options and some editing capabilities, and will easily print to a 3D printer that has a Windows compatible printer driver. The app can be used as a reference and a test tool for 3D-editing and validating 3MF files that you create.

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!
