Morphi has many uses: visualization, creating 3D models, inventions + prototypes, as a teaching tool for preK - 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: Draw 3D objects freehand + edit with shapes/text libraries. Transform high contrast 2D images (pngs/jpgs) from iPad Photo Album or Camera (experimental features) into editable 3D designs. Mirroring/symmetrical drawing+angle tool+revolving lines to create unique designs. Adjust line thickness + 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). Add low/high resolution to curved shapes, like spheres, cylinders, tori, cones, hemispheres + ellipsoids.
3D TYPE: Create editable 3D text in all the fonts loaded 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, pan+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.
COLORS+MATERIALS: Vibrant colors, tints, shades. Great pre-loaded materials and NEW advanced materials for adding + editing textures on your 3D models using photos saved on your iPad's camera.
FILE MANAGEMENT: File naming + saving on iPad with no logins required.
TUTORIALS: Short, easy to follow tutorials on all of Morphi's tools directly in the app's gallery. Link to written guide too 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 and z axes.
RULER: Measure objects in millimeters 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 a model, 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. You can also lock the grid.
CLIPBOARD: Cut + paste objects from one file to another with clipboard button.
LIGHTING + SHADOWS: Simplified, powerful lighting options for your 3D models ranging from top, front, back, right and left.
CHANGE GRID SIZE: Customize the grid to match 3D printer build volume.
HIDEABLE TOOLBARS: To maximize space.
Bug fixes and general improvements.

Easy App for Beautiful 3D Design
My students and I have been using this app for over a year to design in 3-D. Students have created wonderful objects, both simple and complex, that we have printed on our 3-D printer. I especially love how easy it is to take line drawings and convert them into 3-D simply by pushing a button. It makes it easy for even second graders to make 3-D designs that truly wow everybody.
Thanks so much. We're so happy that you+your students enjoy designing in Morphi in the classroom. We just released a new version with even more cool 2D to 3D drawing tools. Please stay in touch, share your amazing work with us and join our educator program at www.morphiapp.com. All best, Morphi app team
Great Designing app
Unfortunately very frequently the shapes you are attempting to subtract(or remove from another shape)fails and subtracts nothing and becomes a glitched piece that won’t subtract or be subtracted from
Many thanks for your awesome review!!
We're here to help and are just seeing your comments now. We normally receive help desk questions at email@example.com. Would it be possible to email us a screen shot or video of what is happening when you subtract shapes so we can see exactly what is going on. We'll be better able to resolve the problem.
In the meantime, a couple of tips on grouping. Morphi works best with iOS 11. If you are trying to subtract grouped objects then you will usually need to ungroup them and subtract them one at a time. We have videos on our YouTube channel to help you master all the tools with more to come. https://youtu.be/eZvw_MZnFu4
Also check out our @Morphiapp instagram for ideas and inspiration from the Morphiverse. https://youtu.be/eZvw_MZnFu4
Let us know how else we can help.
We look forward to connecting.

Cute and pretty only for play don't try anything practical
Visually v attractive but hugely frustrating interface. Moving objects is so clumsy, objects get grouped and moved by accident constantly but sizing things is maddening. size tools have zero fine controls. X y x coordinates not indicated and even object selection is just frustrating. Play w the free don't pay for this
Hi Veritas4all, many thanks for your review. We're here to help you so lets take each of your issues one by one: 1. Moving objects: You can select one object or several objects by clicking on each of them (or select all for all of them, under editing tools in 2nd tab in right corner) and then you can move objects horizontally by dragging or vertically with the up and down tool. It may take some time to get used to selecting and moving objects on an iPad but you will get the hang of it once you have tried it a few times. You can also temporarily freeze the grid if it is easier for you when you move objects (third views tab in upper right corner). People have designed everything from fully functioning rockets to rings to robot enclosures in Morphi on iPad. For fine movements, go to the editing tab (2nd tab in the top right corner) and scroll down to position the grid on x, y and z. 2. Grouping: Objects are not grouped unless you select them and click on the group button in the editing tools. If you select an object by accident, then simply deselect it. 3. Size tools: You can change dimensions precisely by scrolling down to the scale tools in the editing toolbar and clicking on scale button and using - or + to add precise dimensions. 4. XYZ coordinates: You can click on the ruler in the editing tools (2nd tab, right corner) and see xyz for your object or group in mm and inches. You can also go to the position section in the editing tools and position your object or group on the grid on x,y and z. Please check out the playlist of all the tools in the app under the i section in the gallery. Each video is less than a minute and they are helpful. Of course, you can always reach out to us directly at hello@Morphiapp.com if you need additional help or have suggestions. To see the amazing things people are creating in Morphi in over 110 countries around the world, please visit our public @Morphiapp instagram page. All best and stay in touch, Morphi app team
