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, stop motion animation + more. Try all of Morphi’s 3D design tools for FREE. Pay $9.99 to upgrade to full access for Augmented Reality, exporting STL+ OBJ files and importing STL files (no subscription).
Schools, libraries + maker spaces purchasing on 20+ iPads should purchase through Morphi Edu (our identical education app) on the App Store + get 50% volume discounts.
Morphi has many uses: visualization, creating 3D models, inventions+prototypes, as a teaching tool for Maker education+STEAM subjects (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 tools+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 to certain shapes 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 over 75+ fonts using the keyboard
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 button for viewing, editing+interacting with your Morphi models in your environment and taking pictures. (paid feature)
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. (paid feature)
STL import+editing on iPad from other Morphi iPad, Mac + Windows apps and/or other 3D modeling software. (paid feature)
FILE MANAGEMENT: File naming + saving on iPad with no logins required.
TUTORIALS on all of Morphi's tools+helpful links under the i (info) section in the gallery.
COLOR: Vibrant colors, tints + shades.
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+new micro Scaling Tools for more precise object resizing.
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: Morphi has a 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. Grid locking too.
CHANGE GRID SIZE: Customize the grid to match 3D printer build volume.
CLIPBOARD: Cut + paste objects from one file to another with Clipboard button.
SHADOWS: Shadows are important tools that tell you where an object is on the grid. By following objects' shadows in Morphi, you can more precisely move objects+build 3D models.
IDEAS: Check out pre-made 3D models in the Gallery under Ideas for beginners.
HIDEABLE TOOLBARS: For space maximization.
Minor fixes to the transparency background.
Ratings and Reviews
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the Best 3D Design Apps for iPad
Morphi is an outstanding design app and definitely one of the best on the App Store for iPad. It’s simple to use with so many powerful features and free updates. It’s also a bargain given at $9.99 given it’s capabilities and with no subscription or logins and the ability to design from anywhere without a wifi connection. Video tutorials and customer support are also stellar. I highly recommend Morphi to anyone who wants to design in 3D for 3D printing, AR, animation and other forms of visualization.
Thanks so much MLBH!! We are happy that you enjoy using Morphi. You'll love the new features we just released. Lots of amazing 2D to 3D tools for all.
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 email@example.com. All best, Morphi app team
