3D Builder App For Windows 8.1 Allows Easy 3D Object Creation

/ 7 years ago


Microsoft are looking to stay up with the 3D printing trend with Windows 8.1 and the launch of their new App looks set to help 3D printer users with object creation.

Creating objects in 3D hasn’t always been an easy task, using CAD software can take a fair bit of training and creating something that will then also print out into a working 3D model of any significance can be even more difficult.

The new app from Microsoft aims to make things as easy as using a digital Lego set, the 3D Builder app uses a database of pre-designed objects that can be printed straight away, think 3D printer clip-art. Even better is that these parts can be combined to create new objects, such as wheels, blocks, even a model train and the rest is up to your imagination.

Should you already have some 3D models, be a dab hand with CAD yourself or maybe you just downloaded some models, then you can easily import and still modify those files within the new app.

Of course you still need the 3D printer to turn these objects into a reality, but the app is ready for anyone to use regardless.
