Zebra Imaging: Print a 3D Hologram Using Autodesk 123D Family of Apps
February 19th, 2013 by Matthew Langan
Last month, Zebra Imaging launched a new Web GL integration service that will be available on the Autodesk 123Dapp.com website. The new integration will allow 123D users to seamlessly print a 3D holographic display from a 3D model.
Through the agreement, the partnership aims to further strengthens both Zebra Imaging’s and Autodesk’s ability to provide 3D design and fabrication tools to organizations across the globe.
This partnership extends holographic prints as a new medium for 3D modelers to share their designs. The Autodesk 123D family of apps provides users with the ability to capture, design and make their ideas in 3D, and connect with others for support and inspiration. Zebra Imaging will now be part of that inspiration as a featured Fabrication Partner, offering users the ability to print their creations in a true 3D hologram, also known as a ZScape® 3D Holographic Print.
“With our technology and 3D print services, 3D data can be brought out of the computer and into the consumer 3D display market at an affordable price. The partnership is about inspiring creativity and new approaches for visualizing in 3D,” said Brian Hill, GM Zebra Imaging Print Division, in a recent press release.
Following is a video from Zebra Imaging that shows users how to prepare a hologram for printing once they have made their model or selected a model from the Autodesk 123D Gallery.
