Notable New Yorkers – 3D Heights

You may have seen a series we ran a few months ago highlighting the incredible makers in the Midwest, specifically in Chicago. This time we went out to New York and met some truly notable business owners using 3D printing to enhance their offerings. First up we have Jerry Castanos, formerly of the US military, and currently owning and operating 3D Heights, a community-focused 3D Printing shop in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood. Watch the video below to learn about how 3D Heights came to be, and what the future of 3D printing might look like. 

Multitouch Tinkercad and 123D Circuits for Windows

Have you heard the news?  The first releases of Tinkercad and 123D Circuits with multitouch just hit the Windows App Store!  Like their browser-based counterparts they're totally free and they'll run on any Windows 8.1 computer.

Let's dig into it!  Tinkercad for Windows 8.1 with multitouch now lets you Pan, Zoom, and Orbit with two fingers, which is as intuitive as it gets.  You can also drag, position and manipulate shapes just as you normally would with a mouse - now with a stylus too.

Check out this awesome hands-on video with Tinkercad:

With 123D Circuits for Windows 8.1 you can now pan and zoom with your fingers and design and edit circuits with the stylus.  It's a great way to design using two hands and if you don't have a Windows 8.1 PC with a touchscreen or touchpad you can still download the apps and run them with a mouse as you would their browser counterparts.
