Voxel is a fun, easy-to-use 3D-pixel editor. It's like Minecraft without all the mining. Use it to create simple sculptures, 3D icons, game-levels, or just to doodle with blocks.
Voxel now has 3D printing built-in! Order plastic and even metal prints of your models from directly within the app. Models are printed by Sculpteo and shipped directly to you.
Simply tap in empty space to create the first block. From there you can attach new blocks to it by tapping any face. Or, toggle the grid guide to put blocks exactly where you want them. A color palette lets you change colors. Drag your finger on the selected block to rotate your view. Use a two-finger-swipe to rotate the view as well. Use the familiar two-finger pinch motion to zoom in or out -- or just hold your finger in one spot.
Voxel is easy enough for kids to enjoy, but it is also designed for creative adults. Advanced users will appreciate Voxel's layering and animation tools. Upload your models to the online gallery!
Now make models for use with Minecraft -- Voxel now imports/exports .binvox format!

Ratings and Reviews
This is really a $3 app. I have no problem with that if it were stated up front. The app description says "the free version" can be upgraded to full functionality. Well the version I bought was $.99 and was not labeled as "lite". Only after purchasing does it disclose this is the light version and that you have to pay another $2 to save models! Apple should not let sellers get away with such fraudulent marketing even if it is just a few dollars, it is still wrong!
🗳🎁 It’s a cool app for building with 3d blocks!
This was the first? App for building with blocks falls on iOS and I think it is still the best
All of the flat black apps seem well-made and reasonably priced.
What we really want to see released is Rotoshop!
Users would have a field day. Will it ever happen?
So this is just great. Simple to use and creative. There are minor issues mostly related to large projects with 1000s of blocks. It gets sluggish and vulnerable to crashing in the options menu at that point. I recommend being patient and waiting for the buttons to respond or it can crash. Also a fill area option and making a line would be time savers. Like if you click on a box with line option enabled and it makes a dotted line you can expand until you select done and it fills in the line. That would be useful. But despite small issues it's simply the most fun drawing app in the store. Now add a option for making specific boxes glow and making transparent boxes that would be cool. I made a formula 1 car and I was surprised how much detail you can make with just blocks. It really is like playing with Legos.
Though I warn of a couple of issues. Double tapping to make 2 bricks repeatedly at a time can often cause freezing leading to crashing of the app. Especially with larger projects. And saving your file in the menu when your project is large and causing slowdown can also freeze. The solution I use is to simply exit every few minutes and reload the app. Annoying but honestly the app allows so much creativity I deal with it until a update fixes the issues.
Please update the app to support large files. It gets very slow and sometimes crashes. It makes creating large projects take ten times longer.
