Seamless 3D design and printing just got one step closer.
Back in April, we announced a partnership with The Foundry to streamline the workflow between its powerful new MODO 801 3D modeling, animation, visual effects and rendering software package and the MakerBot Replicator 3D printing platform.
We’re proud to announce the next milestone in our partnership with the introduction of the MakerBot Kit for MODO. With the MakerBot Kit, you create and edit designs using MODO 801 and publish them directly to Thingiverse, or privately using the MakerBot Cloud Library, all from within MODO.
You can access your designs in your MakerBot Cloud Library using MakerBot Desktop, MakerBot PrintShop, or MakerBot Mobile. You can also directly upload and manage versions on Thingiverse, as the kit also supports .THING files (the container format native to MakerBot Desktop which can hold multiple .STL or .OBJ files and allows you to retain information such as scale of placement on your build plate).
Why use the MakerBot Kit for MODO 801 for 3D printing?
–Get the shape you want in minutes thanks to simple, yet powerful 3D object and surface modeling tools wrapped in an artist friendly workflow.
–Easily export to a watertight mesh in the STL format for easy 3D printing.
–Use a variety of modeling methodologies — from standard mesh construction to brush-based fluid sculpting.
–Clean up and modify data scanned with a MakerBot Digitizer in a streamlined modeling environment.
We’re not done yet.
We’re still hard at work finding new ways to integrate the MakerBot Replicator 3D Printing platform with MODO 801 and put seamless 3D design and printing into the hands of artists and designers at every level. Stay tuned for more.
