DIY – Do it yourself with 3D printing

Do it yourself has typically meant spending several hours in the shed cutting wood or welding parts together. With Autodesk’s new iPad app this term will get a whole new meaning and you will be able to make everyday items using your tablet and a 3D printer.

The two new apps will allow the users to combine images of an object into a 3D model that will be rendered ready for printing or create new products from scratch. 123D Make and 123D Catch are free apps that are designed for mass consumption and will help the industry to become more accessible by everyone.

Check out the demo videos on the 123D Make and 123D Catch sites and let us know what you think.
