As you are all well aware, the 3D printing space has been expanding rapidly over the last two years. Having said this, there are still some things holding the market back from a consumer’s point of view. Probably the biggest brain-1impediment keeping consumers away from purchasing 3D printers, other than price, is the steep learning curve associated with 3D modelling and CAD tools.

Traditionally CAD software has been extremely difficult to operate. For an untrained individual to simply design a moderately complicated object to 3D print, confusion often sets in. Although the various design and CAD based software packages out there have been catering more and more to those amateurs designers, up until now the software still has lacked an easy to use interface.

This may all be changing with the help of a German company called BrainDistrict GmbH. Today they released their Text-to-3D (TT3D) software. Basically it does exactly what the title says. The new software allows the user to type text commands into a window to create 3D objects, scenes, and environments.brain-feat

For example, if a user is designing a 3D model of a living room, they can type things like “add a window to this wall,” or “add a glass table on the right side of the room”. The Text-to-3D software allows anyone to become a 3D designer, taking the difficult aspects out of the design process.

“Everyone loves 3D, however to date, only a very small percentage of people are able to create 3D scenes and images. This is about to change; everyone will now have the power to create a 3D scene on his or her mobile, tablet or any device in a matter of minutes by simply typing text. Our goal is to give every English-speaking user complete freedom in his or her creativity. In addition to rendering cool 3D scenes, users will also be able to create games, and small movies using text and speech. This will change how we interact with 3D Graphics forever.” Says BrainDistrict GmbH founder and CEO Markus Moenig.

The software will be available on a variety of devices, which include desktop computers, mobile devices, tablets, and television devices, shortly. Currently the beta version of the software is available for download on Windows 7/8 64 bit, and Mac OS X devices. The best part of all this is that the text-to-3D software is absolutely free. For troubleshooting, questions, or comments head over to the TT3D software forum thread at 3DPB.com. The company claims to also be working on Speech-to-3D technology, which could enable someone to simply speak to their computer and have a 3D rendering created within minutes.  Check out a demo of the software in the video provided by BrainDistrict below.
