Autodesk announced the launch of Tinkerplay, a free app designed for kids of all ages that introduces creative play through 3D design and 3D printing. This free app is now available for download from Windows Store. he Tinkerplay app allows users to design and customize characters and creatures digitally with the option to 3D print afterwards. The 3D printed parts can also be snapped together for dynamic play. With this launch, new parts, features and functionality have been added to make the world of 3D design simple, fun and engaging.
DESIGN, CUSTOMIZE and 3D PRINT TO PLAY
With Tinkerplay you can easily design and 3D print fun characters, scary creatures or anything else you can imagine using the built-in part library. Simply drag parts together and they snap in place, just like in reality.
UNLEASH YOUR CREATIVITY
Customize your creation to make each part your own with amazing surface textures and shapes. Tap to change the entire part or use magnifying mode to design in detail.
3D PRINT YOUR CREATIONS
When your design is complete, you can easily 3D print all of the parts to make your creation real. Tinkerplay parts are designed to 3D print easily, with no rafts or supports. Ready to print? Downloading STL or .thing print files is a snap.
CREATE YOUR OWN OR TRY THE CHARACTER KITS
Make a scorpion or a ninja using the built-in character templates. Or mix things up and create a scorpion ninja with spikes and dinosaur skin.
STRIKE A POSE
Pose your creation in the app and get a feel for the real-life 3D printed version. All joints in the app bend and twist just like the real 3D printed parts. You can even create custom environments for that perfect photo of your masterpiece.
PLAY WITH OTHERS
Tinkerplay features full multi-touch support so you can design with others. Or, if you want to impress, drag, rotate, throw away and modify parts with many fingers at the same time. And don’t worry, everything you do is automatically saved. Undo and redo at will.
Print small parts to hold your creation in your hand quickly, or print large parts to really impress. With parts that snap together you can go as big as you like.
Download it here from Windows Store for free.
