Morphi is a 3D Design App for Touchscreens

morphi3D modeling apps have a tendency to feel like extremely complex engineering tools. Well, it’s because, for the most part, they are! However, a New York startup, The Inventery, has now released a user-friendly, touchscreen-responsive, 3D modeling app designed for iPads, called Morphi.

Using ready-made shapes, templates and modification tools, Morphi aims to allow nearly anyone at all to easily understand, and play with 3D printers. According to the company’s press release,

“Morphi makes 3D modeling and printing easier and more enjoyable for people of all skill levels and educational backgrounds.”

Some of the templates and shapes can be bought and downloaded in-app through the iTunes store.  Once a ready made design is downloaded, users are given a variety of simple, but powerful tools which they can use to manipulate the 3D objects on screen.

The idea of creating 3D shapes with fingers on a screen is what drives Morphi. It is so easy and intuitive that even a pre-schooler could figure out the user interface.  For those that need further instructions, the application has built in tutorials to help them along.   Morphi doesn’t have its own printing drivers; instead it exports an .STL file that can then be opened in third-party software that can then send it to a 3D printer.

Is Morphi the “MS Paint” (or the Mario Paint!) of the 3D printing world? It’s possible, however, bringing 3D printing to the masses is one of the goals of many 3D-printing companies. Desktop 3D printers and the companies behind them will love this new app, as it will certainly allow just about anyone out there to feel as though they can design in 3D adequately enough, to make the purchase a 3D printer warranted.  Discuss Morphi in further detail at the 3DPB forum thread related to this application.

Morphi is available on the iTunes store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/morphi/id833530351?mt=8).
