App Description

Want to be ahead of the curve on 3D printing? Design the things you imagine, then make them real!

Let creativity flow from your fingertips with Autodesk 123D Design, where you can use natural interactions and editing tools to create a 3D model. You can then 3D print your model at your home, school shop or preferred fabrication service.

Here’s how it works:
•Get started quickly with one of the basic shapes provided. In just a few clicks you will see your ideas start to take shape.
•Professional CAD skills are not required! The creation and editing tools are straightforward and natural, so you can focus on what you are designing rather than how you design it.
•123D Design automatically creates the most natural connection between parts. When moved, objects will align and snap to connection points such as corners or center of faces. Is that not what you want? Don’t worry. You can define your own specific connection points.
•Save your designs to your desktop or save them to MyProjects, so you can access them from the 123D website or via mobile from 123D Design iOS.
•Ready to 3D print? Converting your model from digital to physical is just a few clicks away.

Still not impressed? Here’s more cool stuff:
•If you are more comfortable designing on a flat piece of paper, then start with a sketch and create an SVG file to import it into 123D Design!
•Preview what your project will look like when it’s made by adding realistic materials like plastic, ceramic, wood, and metal (to name a few).
•Check out projects from other 123D Design users, right in the app.
•If you also work with other 123D apps like 123D Catch or 123D Make, you can open these models directly into 123D Design via MyProjects in your account. No need to think about export formats!
