When I first heard that the president of 3D Systems was committed to the democratization of 3D printing and design, it was difficult to know if it was a sales slogan or a fundamental core value. With the introduction of Cubify Sculpt, I now know that it is definitely a fundamental core value and a true commitment. Cubify Sculpt has the potential to bring 3D design to just about every age group and just about every level of technical competence.
As an educator that taught from 1st grade to high school students, I always hoped that someone would create a product that could be used at the elementary level as well as the higher grades. While younger students might not be able to create great works of 3D art with Cubify Sculpt, I am convinced that the feature set WILL allow them to successful create nice objects to be printed on a 3D printer.
Cubify Sculpt has the potential to be a major tool for school projects in STEM, Art, Geography and other disciplines. In this video we show how a simple 2D STENCIL and TOPOGRAPHIC MAP are easily turned into Texture Maps to create reasonably complex 3D features.
As you can see, a simple paint program can be used to create a tool to be used with EMBOSS AREA to complement any shape. The fact that Texture Maps WRAP make them particularly powerful.
Cubify Sculpt has exceeded my expectations in a HUGE way.
