3Dponics Inc. is set to launch 3Dcreative.ly, a next-generation 3D-modeling tool that features a number of new and exciting functionalities that give users complete creative control over their digital files.
With 3Dcreative.ly, users can upload and modify any static digital files from Thingiverse . They can also create 3D objects from scratch using the shapes and structures preloaded in the app's Library of Shapes. The most significant feature that differentiates 3Dcreative.ly from its competitors is that it is intended for a mass consumer market, meaning that anyone, regardless of age, skillset or prior 3D-modeling experience, will be able to use it.
3Dcreative.ly is the extension of the original 3Dponics Customizer, an app that allows users to create custom parts for their personal indoor gardens. Both apps are available on any platform—iOS, OS X, Android, Windows, Windows Phone—and in any browser.
With a goal of creating “open source learning”, 3DPonics has continued to expand upon their designs, thanks to the open source community of developers who have taken part in the project. At the same time, the company has also been looking to expand in other directions within the 3D printing space.
Today 3DPonics has announced the unveiling of 3Dcreative.ly, which they claim to be a “next-generation 3D-modeling tool”. 3Dcreative.ly builds upon other 3D modelling software packages currently on the market, keeping in mind that there are many individuals and companies who own 3D printers but don’t have the skills required in order to create high quality 3D printable models.
“The most significant feature that differentiates 3Dcreative.ly from its competitors is that it is intended for a mass consumer market, meaning that anyone, regardless of age, skillset or prior 3D-modeling experience, will be able to use it,” the company tells 3Dprint.com.
"Given its intuitive design, 3Dcreative.ly will appeal to a wide range of people—from rapid prototyping professionals, designers and makers to teachers, students and practically anyone who wants to bring his or her ideas to life," said Michael Golubev, Founder and CEO of 3Dponics. He is confident that the user-friendly tool will help bring 3D printing into the mainstream.
While the app is set to release later in this year. A compete basic version as well as premium version will be available for free. It will be very interesting to see how well this app catches on, specially within educational institution, where 3DPonics has been focusing with a lot of attention.
