Last year I started working on a little application to create 3D models with. Existing software was so complex to use I didn’t feel in control of my own 3D printer, so I started working on this app.
It works by creating a drawing using your mouse or finger on a PC or tablet. With a few easy controls you can then quickly highten, twist and turn your drawing in the third dimension. When you’re happy with the result you can send it to a 3D printer with just one press of the button. Generating gcode for your printer happens automatically.
A beta version has already been successfully used by a lot of people and because of this, we decided to start a kickstarter campaign.
With those funds we’d like to create a beautiful product including the WiFi-box, which enables wireless access to any (supported) 3D printer you connect to it.
The image below gives an impression of the interface. Check out our project on kickstarter: http://doodle3d.com/kickstarter.
The project will be released as open source after the campaign has ended, so you can see exactly how your artwork comes to life.
If you like the project, be sure to spread the word!
