As part of the partnership, MakerBot and The Foundry are working together to develop resources to ensure the seamless integration of MODO and the MakerBot Replicator 3D printing platform. It is anticipated that this relationship will help make The Foundry’s software, when combined with 3D printing on a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer, even easier and more accessible, the companies said.
This partnership also offers users of The Foundry’s MODO 3D content creation platform a 10% discount on the purchase of a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer, a MakerBot Replicator Z18 3D Printer, or a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer through June 25, 2014.
MODO also provides tools for MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner customers to clean and modify their scanned data in a streamlined and integrated modeling environment.
“We are very excited to announce this relationship with The Foundry,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “MakerBot has long been a fan of The Foundry’s MODO application and the MeshFusion plug-in, which provide a variety of modeling methodologies that can take a 3D model from ordinary to extraordinary. We are excited to see what our combined communities and products working together will create.”
