Modio | 3D Print Action Figures With IPhone/IPad App

With Modio Kids Design & 3D Print Action Figures


The Modio app helps kids express their creativity in the form of 3D printed figurines.

The Maker movement is increasingly more popular as technology makes things easier to create. 3D printing is an area where consumers are encouraged to create their own  objects, gadgets and toys. Modio is an app that makes it easy for kids to imagine, design and 3D print a superhero or monster figurine.

Available for both iPhone and iPad, Modio lets users pick from a vast library of 3D parts, including heads, bodies, legs and accessories. When the parts are combined they create a unique super hero or monster like creature. Each figurine can be customized with color, pattern and texture. Also, the detail mode allows children to draw their own emblems. The finished design can be manipulated with the app to see the various poses the figurine can make.


The completed file must be materialized on a 3D printer.  The app supports any 3D printer, although it’s optimized for the MakerBot. The printed parts snap into place to twist and bend like in the app. The modular design enables users to replace any broken parts or change the figurine by printing variations. Watch the video below to see the app in action.
