Free “Cubify Draw” Print-Your-Doodle App Launches #3dthursday

Amid a number of interesting “print-my-doodle” projects shared lately, from Doodle3D to Doodlesculpt,
Cubify has just launched a robust and intuitive Cubify Draw free iOS app for iPhone, iPad, and iPad Mini that allows those just starting out with 3D printing to instantly create a 3D extruded doodle that can be uploaded to Cubify.com for their service to print or send you your processed STL, depending on your interests. Check out the tool for free now to compare to the other sketch-to-object projects you have tried before to get a sense of why this app is worth checking out!

Turn your fingers into an instant 3D drawing tool.

HOW IT WORKS

Step 1: Draw

Use your finger to create a shape.

Step 2: Make it 3D

Turn your drawing into a 3D model. Email the file to yourself or upload it to Cubify.com.

Step 3: Print it

Using your 3D printer, make it real!

FEATURES

Turn your fingers into an instant 3D drawing tool

Bring your imagination to play and simply use your finger to draw on your iPhone, iPad, or iPad Mini – Cubify Draw will turn those images into a 3D model, automatically.

Create a shape, make the line thicker or thinner, then make it 3D! The drawing is turned into a cookie-cutter like shape, and from there you can adjust thickness and height, or make the shape solid, before saving the file.
Make a Cube printable .stl (saved in your My Cubify account, or sent to you by email).
Print out your file on your 3D printer at home.

With Cubify Draw, anyone who can draw (ages 8-80) now has the ability to create unique 3D content. No special software or special skills required!

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
