Here is a great idea that brings sketching, apps and 3D printing all together into one easy to use design centre! Of course, you will need an iPad and 3D printer to start off with, but the rest is going to be down to Doodle3D tools. It is a great thing for kids to use as they get a grip on design and 3D printing, but there are other design programs for the older designers too, so basically this is one of those ideals that has an application in nearly everyone’s life and could encourage youngsters to get into design at an early age.
These are the features that make the Doodle3D idea so cool;
With Doodle3D you can easily create a drawing using your mouse or finger on your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. With the press of a button you can then quickly highten, twist and bend your drawing in the third dimension. The only thing standing between you and your own physical creation now is pressing the ‘print’-button. Your name, logo, an animal or art object… Your own imagination is the only limit!
You can get involved with the Doodle3D project on Kickstarter and by bidding just $100 (£65) you can get yourself the basic wi-fi kit.
