Here's a powerful tool that can help those ideas blossom that are circling around in your mind. The Morphi app for your iPad makes it possible to create 3D models and then go on to print them. This app is ideal for anyone looking to make an architectural model, decorative projects, wearable art, STEAM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), as well as 3D models for Maker education (MakerEd). What's great is that you can create these projects on the go and you don't even need a mouse as it uses touch functionality.
Morphi makes it possible to get a projected started whenever the moment hits. Make use of the 3D printable designs the app offers. There are text, shapes, and colors all available to you. You are encouraged to really experiment with the different angles of the shapes because you'll find each shape has hidden features as you move them. But don't feel your creativity is stifled by having to work with a library of options because you've got a huge selection of 3D modeling tools as your disposal. Go ahead and scale, rotate, subtract, merge, ungroup/group, and plenty more.
The app requires iOS 8.0 or later to use and there is an in-app purchase available for $3.99 that gives you access to an entire Shapes Pack. Morphi is really hitting high notes with users who have given it 4.5 out of five stars. In its most recent update new features were added, there were some general improvements, and you can directly export your projects from the Gallery to Thingiverse.com.

There are a number of stand-out features in the Morphi app that make this app not only functional but user-friendly. You can use your fingers to extrude and draw 3D objects, you can put objects together, and you can cut and paste objects. All 3D files can be sent by email in STL format. Now if you feel like you're stuck and you don't know where to begin on a project check out the pre-loaded 3D models in the Gallery that you can work from. The app supports auto-save so that you never lose your hard work, there are hideable toolbars, and there is the undo/redo button to make your life that much easier.
