Morphi is a simple, powerful 3D design app for all ages+skill levels. Create 3D models (STLs+OBJs) on the go with touch, without wifi for 3D Printing, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, animation + more. Try all of Morphi’s 3D design tools for FREE. Pay a one time $9.99 in app purchase (no subscription) to upgrade to full access for Augmented Reality, exporting STL+ OBJ files + importing STL files.
VOLUME PURCHASE: Schools, libraries+makerspaces purchasing for 20+ iPads should purchase Morphi Edu (identical to Morphi) on App Store + pay $4.99 per ipad (50% volume discount).
Morphi has many uses: visualization, creating 3D models, inventions + prototypes, as a teaching tool for pre K-12 + university level Maker education (MakerEd) + STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art+Math), stop motion animation, product design, graphic design, entrepreneurship+more. Key features:
2D to 3D: Vector drawing+editing. Transform high contrast 2D images (pngs/jpgs) from iPad Photo Album or Camera (experimental features) into editable 3D designs. Symmetrical drawing+angle tool+revolving lines to create unique designs. Adjust line thickness, fill+erase.
3D SHAPES: Build complex 3D models using our 3D shapes library combined with 3D objects from 2D to 3D tools+type tools. Some shapes have hidden features (like ability to add extra sides or bend shapes at different angles). Add low/high resolution to curved shapes, like spheres, cylinders, tori, cones, hemispheres+ellipsoids.
3D TYPE: Create 3D text in all the fonts on your iPad
SIMPLE, POWERFUL 3D MODELING TOOLS: Morphi has an empowering user interface that simplifies+streamlines standard 3D modeling features (like rotate, scale, merge, subtract, group/ungroup, transforms, array+other functions) to make it easier+more enjoyable to create in 3D.
AUGMENTED REALITY for viewing, editing+interacting with your Morphi models in your environment and taking pictures.
3D PRINTING: Prepare STL or OBJ files made in Morphi for 3D printing following printer/printing service guidelines. 3D printers vary, but generally the file is uploaded to the printer's slicing software for printing.
STL+OBJ file export from iPad: By Email, Airplay, iCloud, Google Drive, Abobe CC, Thingiverse, DropBox+more.
STL import+editing on iPad from other Morphi iPad, Mac+Windows apps and/or other 3D modeling software. Note: high resolution models/scans may take longer to open+boolean operations will not be possible on those models but other tools (resize, color, etc) will be available.
COLORS+MATERIALS: Vibrant colors, tints, shades. Pre-loaded materials and advanced materials for adding+editing textures on your 3D models using photos saved on your iPad's camera.
3D LITHOPHANE tools to transform photos into 3D designs.
FILE MANAGEMENT: File naming+saving on iPad; no logins.
TUTORIALS: Short, easy to follow tutorials on Morphi's tools in the gallery. Link to written guide under i section.
ALIGNMENT: When 2 or more objects are selected, simple Alignment Tools popup for aligning objects left, right or center on x, y, z axes.
RULER: Measure objects in mm or inches.
SCALING: 2 ways to scale: quick resizing with Scaling Sliders+Micro Scaling Tools for more precise object resizing + input using the keyboard.
3D OBJECT MOVEMENT: Add objects to grid by tapping or sliding. Select+move objects easily horizontally by tapping+sliding or vertically with the new Up/Down Tool. Select all for easy grouping.
GRID MOVEMENT: Fully movable 3D grid with panning. To build models, you'll need to move the grid + 3D objects. You can control the grid by sliding your fingers across the grid or use the grid toolbar for more controlled movement. Lock the grid too.
CLIPBOARD: Cut + paste objects from one file to another.
LIGHTING + SHADOWS: Simplified, powerful lighting options for your 3D models (top, front, back, right and left).
CHANGE GRID SIZE: Customize the grid to match 3D printer build volume.
HIDEABLE TOOLBARS: Maximize space.
A monumental update of Morphi's tools, especially for Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Texture Mapping + more.
We improved and enhanced our Augmented Reality tools using Apple's ARKit, including:
● better snapping of 3D models on horizontal planes, like floors + tables
● new snapping of 3D models on vertical planes, like walls
● new snapping of 3D models on images using our new Morphi AR codes linked in the app for printing
● quick proportional sizing of 3D models in AR for easy scaling to life size
We added the ability to add videos on the iPad as textures to 3D models or parts of models.
We supplemented the export of obj files to include the 3D model's color + texture files for use in AR, VR, Mixed Reality, Game Design, Animation programs + so much more.
We refined the gold + window textures in our materials tools.
General bug fixes and performance enhancements too.
Ratings and Reviews
The Single Best Mobile Option for 3D printing
The Inventery has always pushed the boundaries for what an iPad app can do without the need for extensive explanation or documentation, when modeling 3D parts. It’s interface is especially intuitive and non-intimidating for the casual or first-time modeler. Experienced modelers will find few limitations, with regular updates extending functionality.
The icing on the cake for me has always been its ability to work offline in creating complex stl (and obj) models that can be easily transmitted wirelessly to local printers, without the need for cabling or the internet.
With the latest updates, its possible to model very accurate parts for 3D printing that can easily integrate with open-source slicers to create a complete workflow that does not require a dedicated laptop or desktop device, and can be modeled and printed from anywhere there’s an internet connection, if need be.
With Dropbox (and other cloud-based services) integration rolled in, I’m able to begin with a rough 2D sketch and end up with a fully developed and printed part, ready for moulding and production in hours, without the need for an expensive and iterative casting and moulding service.
In short, this is a fun, inexpensive, capable and easy way to bring 3D part modeling and pre-manufacturing in house.
Get it, you will not be disappointed!
More than meets the eye!
When I first began looking at the Morphi app I thought it was only a 3D modeler for use with 3D printers. I couldn’t have been more wrong. After speaking with Sophia I quickly realized the implications of this app far beyond simple 3D printing. The amount of math that can be visualized alone is worth the download. We have since used this app in math classes, art classes, history classes and English classes. Students and teachers love how easy it is to use and the understanding that comes with seeing something visualized in 3D. I love this app!

Thanks so much Captjon007. Your work inspires us as well and we're excited that you are using Morphi across subject STEAM areas at your school. We know you and your students are going to enjoy the new version and there are lots of new features coming soon so stay tuned. Reach out at any time at email@example.com.
A great app to get started designing in the 3D World!
I facilitate a Makerspace program at our elementary school. This is a great program for all of our students. I have successfully used with grades kindergarten through 5th. The younger students have instant success with the 2D to 3D drawing and the older students use all the features. We are currently using the app with 3rd graders. They are using it to design Navajo Pendants to go along with their Native American Unit. I highly recommend Morphi and have told many teachers about it.

Many thanks Bethebookworm. We're impressed with the designs created by your students across grade levels in Morphi. Phenomenal creativity and learning. Thanks for inspiring us to make Morphi even better. We can't wait to see what you and your students will make in Morphi's newly released version 3.3 when they get back from break. Reach out anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. All best, Morphi app team
