Autodesk 123D Catch for iPad Turns Your Photos Into 3D Models
Converting Physical to Digital on Mobile, Making 3D More Accessible to
SAN RAFAEL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Autodesk,
Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) announced 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 that
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. 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 take advantage
of a connected group of Autodesk software, fabrication services for 3D
printing and laser cutting, and a community of like-minded individuals
focused on 3D design and personal fabrication. The Autodesk 123D
family provides users with the ability to capture, design and make
their ideas, and connect with others for support or inspiration. Anyone
can try Autodesk apps, services, and communities to experiment and
experience the creative process.
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,
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.
“The launch of 123D Catch for iPad allows anyone to capture, explore,
experiment and experience the 3D design and personal fabrication
