If you’ve got an iPad with a camera, you can now use it to capture 3D objects using Autodesk’s new 123D Catch app for the iPad. Similar to the desktop software of the same name, you take a series of photographs of an object or setting and upload them to a server. The service will then compile a fully textured 3D model for display and manipulation.

  3. Awesome! Can somebody who knows more about 3d printing than I do answer… could the model then be sent to a printer or easily converted to a form that is printable? Or is it much more complicated than that?
