SAN RAFAEL, Calif. – Autodesk announced today that 123D Catch is now available for iPad on the App Store. This new free app lets users take images from their iPad camera and upload them to the Autodesk cloud service, which then transforms the images into a 3D model.
“Complementing the desktop and newly released online versions, the Autodesk 123D Catch app allows users to capture the world around them in 3D while on the go,” a press release reads. “Imagine the potential for photos of vacation memories, family or other mementos brought to life in 3D. Captures made in 123D Catch can also be used as the foundation for further 3D modeling, 3D animation, or used to create a 3D printed object.”
Part of the 123D family of products, 123D Catch users can also take advantage, Autodesk said, of a connected group of Autodesk software, fabrication services for 3D printing and laser cutting. The Autodesk 123D family provides users with the ability to capture, design and make their ideas, and connect with others for support or inspiration.
Autodesk also introduced a new feature for 123D products called My Corner, which provides cloud storage for all 123D design projects while connecting 123D product workflows. This feature will enable users to share files between products—123D, 123D Catch, 123D Make, and 123D Sculpt— to explore their creative ideas, or even use that model to create a physical object through fabrication services. Users can also share their projects and explore other people’s creations from an online gallery that supplies an abundance of ideas for creative projects.
“The Autodesk family of 123D products breaks down barriers between the physical and digital, empowering users to customize the world around them,” said Samir Hanna, vice president, Consumer Products, Autodesk, in a statement. “The launch of 123D Catch for iPad allows anyone to capture, explore, experiment and experience the 3D design and personal fabrication process.”
Autodesk 123D Catch app is exclusively available through the App Store for iPad at www.itunes.com/appstore.
