Leonar3Do Launches Updated 3D Collaborative Playground, Leopoly, at London 3D Printshow
According to Leopoly, your new 3D model is just minutes away—and at the 3D Printshow in London on September 4-6, 2014, Leonar3Do, Inc. will show you how, as they unveil their newly updated community-based modeling site, Leopoly. As exhibitors at the show, they join many other well-known companies in the industry, from Autodesk to Zmorph. Sponsored by Adobe and Stratsys, this is the third year London has hosted the 3D Printshow, and they offer many new features this year for attendees.
Rolling out numerous easy-to-use apps created especially for the show, Leopoly will begin offering their new features to the public as of September 4, 2014. “My vision has always been to create user-friendly products for everyone, enabling them to draw and create in 3D. With Leopoly, users get a game-like experience that is engaging, social and fun–all at once,” states Daniel Ratai, founder of Leonar3Do.
The Leopoly team anticipates that the process of creation is going to be less and less individual, and more community based. They hope to create an online community of 3D “shapers.” The Leopoly platform not only provides a rich design toolset, but also swings the doors wide open to collaborative thinking and design. With that in mind, their direction for this “digital playground” in 2014 is to grow their user base by expanding partnerships with schools and other enterprises. The site integrates a wide variety of 3D toolsets in one online interface, offering the following:
- A color tool: using all the colors in the rainbow, users can fill their 3D models with life.
- An engraving tool: The user can engrave and emboss text and patterns into objects in seconds.
- A sculpting tool: The easiest virtual claying tool provides endless opportunities for organic shapes.
- A parametric design tool: Sliders allow the creation of revolving, parametric shaped objects (such as vases, cups, rings, and others) in any form, quickly.
- A cubey tool: The user can build objects from cubes, just as you do with Lego bricks.
- Thematic apps: Using special, tailor made thematic apps, users play safely with a guarantee of quick success.
- Import and export options: import (scan or file) and export designs form and into other software.
- Public and private galleries and collections
Leopoly is meant to be an intuitive tool that helps users ready their designs for 3D printing quickly. With its Leonar3Do VR Hardware Kit, Leopoly is touted as the only fully immersive 3D tool.
“One of the great advantages of Leopoly is that as our users browse thousands of 3D models created by others, they can also modify and customize them easily. We call this ‘collaborative design,’ simply letting users create objects of their personal taste in seconds,” said Roland Manyai, head of Leopoly.
Leonar3Do, Inc., was created by young Hungarian inventor, Daniel Ratai, who even in his childhood, was already interested in the construction of spatial 3D drawing. He wanted to break with the 2D drawing and modeling method in which all designing methods are rooted. Leopoly is meant to inspire the 3D designer in everyone. All models created and saved on the Leopoly website are available for further shaping by the whole Leopoly community.
Using a freemium pricing model, Leopoly is free to all users. An enhanced version of platform is also available and comes with premium features such as unlimited importing and exporting of designs, a personalized online gallery, and access to a range of advanced tools. Education and white label solutions are also available in standard and tailor made packages. See Leopoly.com for more information.
