The off-road Ariel Nomad - makes us want to move to the countryside!

Models designed in Modo can now be uploaded directly to Thingiverse or the MakerBot Cloud Library

MakerBot and The Foundry have unveiled the MakerBot Kit for Modo in a partnership that delivers Modo’s first 3D App using the MakerBot Thingiverse and Cloud Library API.

With the MakerBot Kit for MODO, users can create and edit designs using The Foundry’s Modo 801 capabilities and publish the files directly to MakerBot’s Thingiverse online community, or save them privately using the MakerBot Cloud Library, all from within Modo design software.
Thingiverse is currently one of the largest 3D design communities in the world, offering more than 500,000 downloadable digital 3D files, and one of the best for viewing, sharing and downloading 3D printable files.

“The MakerBot Kit for Modo is a logical starting point for us to bring the benefits of our partnership with MakerBot to the creative design community,” said Christopher Kenessey, chief officer of sales and marketing with The Foundry.
