Realizing the potential that 3D-printing has for kids who want to make toys from scratch, Autodesk released the Tinterplay app.

While 3D printing holds so much potential, the average adult isn't equipped with the know-how to build a 3D model with CAD software. Appealing to the next generation of engineers, inventors and designers, the Tinkerplay app is simple and intuitive, challenging people of all ages to become creators. Depending on the skill level that someone has when first interacting with the Tinkerplay app, there are options to create from a template or build a model from nothing. Texture and color can be controlled within the app, and the best part of this kind of play is that a toy is created at the end of it.
