Scorpion robots, reptile super heroes, and beyond! MakerBot is announcing a creature-tastic partnership with mobile app, Modio. This easy and fun app lets you mix and remix creature “body” parts to create something new right out of your imagination. Putting together the Modio digital models is a snap with the app’s intuitive drag and connect design interface. The design files are optimized to print on MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D printers, making them even easier to print–for you, the kids, and all their friends. Stop by a MakerBot Retail Store location to experience one of the printed creatures up close. Ready to try Modio yourself? Learn more about the mobile app here. Optimized for MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers After you’ve placed the final claw hand or fierce robot head on your Modio creature, you can download the 3D model as a .thing file and seamlessly import it to the MakerBot Desktop app before 3D printing it. Modio also provides a print preview that includes useful information, like estimated print time and weight, so you know what you’re printing, and whether you have time to order pizza before the job is complete. Easy Piece-y Piecing together a creature design in Modio is as simple as dragging the “body” parts you want together. A fun bolt of light signals that the connection between the parts has been made and… voila… you’ve designed a 3D printable character. After you 3D print your Modio design on a MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer, you can pull it apart and remix it in real life too. So you can get as creature crazy as your imagination allows.
