Modio Inc. announces last weekend the launch of Modio for iPad at Maker Faire Bay Area. Modio is an intuitive, easy to use app that enables anyone to build, modify amazing custom 3D printed models.

In Modio you simply select body parts and templates from its online collection and start dragging parts together. "You can make a scorpion or a ninja using built-in character templates or mix things up and create a scorpion ninja with spikes. And dinosaur skin." notes Modio team.

All the parts are interchangeable. As you drag them around and get them close enough they snap into place. If you change your mind, simply drag a part away and throw it off screen. You can modify all the parts in Modio with fun surface textures and shapes to make your creations truly unique.

All creations are fully pose-able in the app to allow you to build amazing characters and creatures. Modio is fully optimized for iPad and also supports multi-touch, so many can create and play together at the same time.

When you finish you design, you can then make them real with desktop 3D printer. Modio is optimized for Makerbot, so you can download .thing files with all your parts laid out and ready to 3D print with the Makerbot Desktop App. Modio has also been designed to work with most of the desktop 3D printers. All the parts are designed to print easily on a 3D printer without any rafts or support material, but that is not all. The app features a unique 3D printing visualization interface that allows users to determine the size and layout of all the parts on the print plate of a 3D printer to simplify the printing process.

All the building parts and templates are free in Modio for a limited time. You can download the app at itune store.
