In the 21st century, 3D printing should be easy -- but it isn't. What will it take for the average person to design something in 3D, and easily convert it into a physical object? MakerPad is a new online platform that allows anyone to design and print objects in 3D, using their smartphone. It uses the same smartphone gestures you already know: tilt, swipe, pinch, move. It also uses the phone's cameras to re-create existing objects, and allow you to easily manipulate them. Then the online platform easily enables the object to be sent to a 3D printer or laser cutter. And because it's an online platform, MakerPad can take advantage of the latest cutting edge hardware: whether it's a new smartphone, a video game controller, or a VR headset.
