Autodesk partners with Sculpteo for the launch of their latest iPad app, 123D Creature.
This new app lets you create monsters on your iPad … and have them 3D printed by Sculpteo !
Create your monster with 123D Creature.
Samir Hanna, Vice President of Consumer Products at Autodesk, points out how apps like 123D Creature and 3D printing with Sculpteo make it easy now for everyone to create physical creative products:
“Now, for the first time, 123D Creature makes it easy for anyone to create a sophisticated creature on an iPad, and then have a 3D printed object delivered to their doorstep with a few swipes of their finger. With the 123D family, we strive to put powerful 3D technology into the hands of anyone who wants to be creative, and we look forward to seeing the creatures people will create and share with the community.”
Start with a simple skeleton made of digital clay. Using the multitouch screen, change the shape of your creature easily: thicken, stretch, sculpt your creature with the tools panel.
Your creature can then be airbrushed or you can add textures directly imported from your photo library. Adjust lighting and shadows, apply filters… Your creature has now a unique appearance, from very creepy to completely adorable !
3D print your creature with Sculpteo. 3D print it at Sculpteo with the “Click to Print” button. 123D Creature is fully integrated with Sculpteo. Your monster can be 3D printed in many different materials. We are also able to put any picture on your 3D print, this Background option is exclusively available at Sculpteo.
As Clément Moreau, CEO of Sculpteo, explains:
“We are able to make the latest 3D printing technology available to people via this creative app simply by integrating a Sculpteo button which enables people to transform their 3D designs into real objects.”
“The 123D Creature app is a great example of how the Sculpteo 3D printing Cloud Engine is being integrated into new innovative apps and software.”
123D Creature sells for $7.99 but is available on the AppStore at $1.99 during its initial launch period.
