MakerBot introduced a new iPad app alias Shape Maker tool that is an upgraded part of the MakerBot’s free PrintShop App. By applying this newest 3d modeling app, the users will be able to transform their drawings, photos, sketches as well as screen captures into the 3d printable files.
With the in-built camera of the app, the users can snap a photograph from any drawing or sketch (the drawing or sketch must be bold with higher resolution). As soon as the photograph is taken, the users can use the option to extrude the shape according to their preferred depth.
This new 3d design tool will facilitate the users to produce 3d designs out of any 2d drawing easily and make them 3d printable.
This 3d printing app will be a great resource for classrooms which apply a 3D printer as part of their STEM curriculum.
The new Shape Maker Tool is accessible in iTunes for download on iPad.
The users can download it from MakerBot.com/PrintShop
