Design Your Perfect Toy with Autodesk's Tinkerplay Design Your Perfect Toy with Autodesk's Tinkerplay

Children of our millennium are extremely lucky: they have really cool toys from chock-full store shelves. But Autodesk steps even further and offers you and your little treasure to become designers and developers of a personal series of 3D-printed toys.

Their new Tinkerplay app is kids-friendly and there are both pre-designed character templates and tools to create your own heroes from scratch. But the idea might be attractive for a broader audience. A wide range of functions lets everyone choose among lots of colors, customizable textures, scenes, and so on, to create all sorts of characters.

Viewing a 3D model from different angles is one more pleasant feature. There is also an option to rotate and modify every single detail or an object as a whole. When everything is ready, just export the .stl or .thing file to create a toy in real life with a 3D printer. But first, the approximate time of printing will be shown to you. It could be a very tempting idea to become an at-home experimentalist.

In case you (more likely) don't have a 3D printer at home, there is a chance to simply play for some time with your creature on the screen or consult any service that offers 3D printing. This unusual possibility is available for Windows, Windows Phone, Android, and iOS users.
