3dcreatively4Back in June, we reported on a company called 3DPonics Inc. which launched in order to make available a free to download, 3D printed hydroponics system. With a goal of creating “open source learning”, 3DPonics has continued to expand upon their designs, thanks to the open source community of developers who have taken part in the project. At the same time, the company has also been looking to expand in other directions within the 3D printing space.

Today 3DPonics has announced the unveiling of 3Dcreative.ly, which they claim to be a “next-generation 3D-modeling tool”. 3Dcreative.ly builds upon other 3D modeling software packages currently on the market, keeping in mind that there are many individuals and companies who own 3D printers but don’t have the skills required in order to create high quality 3D printable models.

The new app, which will be available on virtually any platform, including Windows, OS X, Android, iOS, and Windows Phone, as well as within any browser, seems to take aim at making 3D modeling available to everyone.

“The most significant feature that differentiates 3Dcreative.ly from its competitors is that it is intended for a mass consumer market, meaning that anyone, regardless of age, skillset or prior 3D-modeling experience, will be able to use it,” the company tells 3Dprint.com.

The application is an offshoot of 3Dponics’ original Customizer App which was developed to allow their users to create custom pieces for their own hydroponic indoor gardens. However, this new app allows for users to import virtually any 3D file from repository websites such as Thingiverse and Youmagine, and then load these files into the app or create 3D files from scratch using shapes provided within the app itself.

“Given its intuitive design, 3Dcreative.ly will appeal to a wide range of people—from rapid prototyping professionals, designers and makers to teachers, students and practically anyone who wants to bring his or her ideas to life,” explained Michael Golubev, Founder and CEO of 3Dponics.

While the app is not yet currently available, it will be later this year. There will be a completely free basic version, as well as a premium version available for a fee. 3DPonics is currently looking for beta testers, and anyone interested should contact the company directly.

It should be interesting to see how well this app catches on, especially within educational institutions, where 3DPonics has been focusing a lot of their attention on as of late. What do you think about the potential that this app brings to the open source 3D printing community? Discuss in the 3Dcreative.ly forum thread on 3DPB.com.
