Online 3D Design –

Retroacan_004 by sergio.carrasco.a on is an online 3D design program.  Imagine someone stirring up Sketchup, Legos, and playdoh in a big pot and then sticking it up on a web page for all to use.  The web interface is very intuitive and the mix of colors plus solid building block modeling system makes for a fun way to quickly mock up a design.  Although, the objects that you can create are highly “voxelated” (Read: blocky) an unbounded building system like this is really only limited by your imagination.

    Heh, with something like that you could probably write a design rule check (DRC) pretty simply. Just check each voxel for path-to-base, label trouble spots and your model lights up in the places where printing would go bad…
