Sculpteo teams up with Leopoly!

Since you’re probably fond of 3D printing yourself, you already know TinkerCAD and 3Dtin, two easy to use online 3D tools that help you create models directly in your browser. But since the end of June, the 3D software company Leonar3Do introduced a new way to easily create designs in your browser with their website Leopoly. In our opinion, such tools are the key to broader 3D printing adoption.
And in deed Leopoly is probably the gateway to let anyone access professional creation tools without having any knowledge. It works as a WebGL browser based 3D modeling tool and lets you create and edit 3D objects in the browser. It’s incredibly easy to use, and you only needs a few tries to understand how it works.
The idea behind Leopoly is to let anyone rework other people’s projects. You can save your models, share them on Twitter and Facebook, but also fork project in a Github style.
If you want to know more about it, you can watch the video below:
Beside Leopoly, you’ll find the Leonar3Do software which lets you work your models offline. With the help of their home developed 3D mouse and their head tracking goggles, you’ll be able to create your own things in a virtual 3D environment. It gives anyone the skills to design directly in 3D for 3D printing, while most of the CAD software on the market today are developed for traditional manufacturing.
If users fancy any object to put on their shelves, Leopoly is the easiest, most fun and most intuitive tool to prepare files for 3D printing. Users can start designing almost immediately and make 3D printable files in minutes.
“With Leopoly we break down boundaries. Leopoly narrows the gap between hardly reachable level of proficiency and novice enthusiasts in 3D design and printing” said Roland Mányai Director of Sales and Marketing. “Our goal was to make this project on a web based platform, to open doors to anyone and make it reachable literally anywhere for a wider community of makers and to make 3D modeling FUN.”
New updates of the service will come soon, but we already team up with Leopoly’s team to let everyone 3D print their creation directly in the interface. All you need to do is to click on 3D print, and you’ll be able to order a print from Sculpteo. With Leopoly, 3D printing is just one click away.
We’re thrilled to be a part of this project! If you find TinkerCAD amazing, you’ll definitely find Leopoly even more awesome. Just try it out, and chances are you’ll adopt it right away.
