We love the Modio mobile app for creating 3D printed articulated toys, and were thinking about how to extend the creative possibilities it offers. Many of our apps (Meshmixer, Tinkercad, 123D Design) can work with the 3D printable STL files that Modio exports, so this opens up many possibilities for creation.
One great area to explore is to download models from the 123D Gallery and the 123D Content Library, and remix parts of them by attaching the Modio ball and socket connectors. Meshmixer is the perfect tool to do this! Here's a shark bot that I created using this very process:
Here's an Instructable that will walk you through the process: Make more of Modio with Meshmixer and 123D. It will guide you through the steps of making the shark bot using a model from 123D and parts from Modio.
If you try it and are inspired, why not try some other projects using the skills you've learned?
