We believe in the power of 3D thinking and our vision is to make 3D modeling, designing + printing more accessible and affordable for people of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds. There are many potential uses for Morphi - prototyping, visualization, making functional products and wearables, creating decorative items, rendering quick architectural models, building 3D models to teach STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art + Math), literacy and much, much more.
