The need for complicated modeling software is currently one of the biggest barriers of the 3D printing process. MakerBot’s Digitizer is one proposed solution, and Sandboxr is another service looking to make it easier for laypeople of all ages to customize their own 3D-printed creations. With the Sandboxr web app, users can pose, combine, and create their own unique characters using models provided by companies like Super Villain Studios. Then, Sandboxr will print, package, and ship the figurine. Sandboxr is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, and is expected to launch later this year.
