    BrainDistrict Announces Text-to-3D Software

    This is quite interesting. BrainDistrict is releasing a software package that allow people to use text to design 3D printable object, rather than having to draw and model the traditional way. I don't know if it will catch on or not, but it seems very interesting. Read more at http://3dprint.com/3179/braindistric...o-3d-software/

    What do you think? Is this something you'd use?

    Shapeways has been offering this ability for quite a while, if you use their service to print it. Here's one thing they use it for: https://www.shapeways.com/creator/statement_vase

    Wow. There went an hour looking at all the creators and partners they have though it's quite different and limited versus what BrainDistrict is doing.

    Being able to design 3d spaces using natural language is totally something I would play with at least for initial sketching. It would get pretty cumbersome trying to work out any serious detail in it.

    I had no clue Shapeways offered this. How well does it work?
