3D modeling on your phone

Recommended Posts

Long story short - why do CAD programs still have interface concepts from the 90s? For real - you have to study a CAD program for 4 month before you can really use it (tinkercad maybe an exception).

Anyway I think it is time to move forward. We all know how to use MS Paint - kids SHOULD be able to make their imagination into 3D designs. "Daddy, daddy, look what I made" would be much cooler.

So we tried to make an app that would truly be that easy to use, but also let you create anything you think of. I would really appreciate feedback from you guys - what to make better first etc...

I mean, there are a lot of printers already at schools, but after they print 3 designs from Thingiverse they get bored, because you can't make your own jam...

lol this is the equivalent of buying an inkjet printer and printing things your kid draws using MS paint, but this time, just a more expensive printer.

Not that there's anything wrong with it, just saying it's kind of a first world problem.

Also not saying I wouldn't like kids to have this, but... wouldn't clay or Legos be more... fun?
