Introducing Parametric Parts, Productivity for 3D
Content is king, and it's especially true for 3d printing.That's why I'm proud and excited to introduce Parametric Parts, an alpha product we've been working on that aims to make it easier than ever to create 3d models.
Parametric Parts allows customizing, previewing, downloading, and printing 3d models with your browser. Every model is parametric!
We have an alpha product up and running-- you can give it a try for free with no signup: http://www.parametricparts.com/parts/6m3vp9jd/
We'd love to know what you think!
We're excited because we think this tool will change the way people approach 3d. We need to stop searching for pre-built models and start making them based on the task at hand.
2d printers showed up at home when Microsoft Office made it easy to create documents. And we think 3d printers needs the same thing -- Productivity for 3D.
Make sure to check out the ModelScript tab. If you are a hacker, you'll appreciate the cool, fluent API for creating objects. The sample is a pillow block with counterbored holes-- outside of definition of user parameters, its implemented in 4 lines of code.
If you'd like to see lots of samples, check out the Examples
Give it a try! Just go easy on us, its just an alpha!
Let us know what you think!
