LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CES INTERNATIONAL -- Award-winning pioneer of breakthrough 3D interactive tools, Leonar3Do returns to CES. This year, the perennial CES standout will debut Leopoly, the industry's first online playground for 3D creation.
Leopoly is the easiest way to enter and enjoy the world of 3D creation. It is deliberately designed to meet the needs of masses entering 3D modeling and printing. Leopoly provides an early training ground to introduce 3D creation and skills development in creativity, sculpturing, colors, and design. For other creative makers and innovators, it provides an easy to use step into the 3D ecosystem that will unleash a whole new wave of apps, commercial 3D design templates, printing channels, business models, and new products and services. Leonar3Do will be showcasing Leopoly in LVCC South Hall within the 3D Printing TechZone, booth # 31828.
Akin to playing with Play Dough, Leopoly is easy, fun, and further extends the experience only with new possibilities for users, including the ability to shape, mold, publish, share or 3D print their design in no time. Even more, users can store all of their designs online and come back anytime to continue reshaping them at any point. Leopoly is aimed at young aspiring 3D and digital designers and 'makers' who want to hone their creative minds and 3D design, sculpting, and visualization skills. They can also be part of a creative maker community to share ideas, engage in creative collaboration, get inspired, or inspire others. Leopoly is compatible with a user's own 3D printer, or with 1-click, users can send their 3D object to be printed by way of a partnership with 3D printing service company Sculpteo. To provide its customers with a broad range of choices, Leopoly plans to expand its partnerships with additional companies in the 3D print industry.
Unlike other 3D sculpting tools that have to be downloaded, then mastered, yet still remain confined to an individual's desktop, Leopoly's cloud-based offering combines the following:
- Easy to use 3D sculpting tools,
- An online social community enabling collaborative creation,
- Fastest growing 3D library, now more than 15,000 ready-to-use 3D designs and objects, which can also be further shaped, colored and personalized, and
- Personalized online community pages.
Leopoly's 3D creative playground is especially well suited for schools and students, where educators can expose students early on to hone their skills, gain a competitive edge in the job market, and seize opportunities in the budding 3D economy that is taking root. With the debut of Leopoly, Leonar3Do demonstrates its commitment to elevate learning beyond traditional 2D approaches.
The growing trend in the 'personalization of goods' is fueling the 3D boom, whereby people can now turn their ideas into actual products -- from a better mousetrap, to an improved prosthetic limb, to a custom lunchbox for kids. Like other online industries demonstrated millions of consumers will become "Prosumers" and challenge traditional manufacturers with their own personalized goods, from household products, to electronics, toys, jewelry and others.. The catalyst behind this budding new ecosystem, 3D design and printing technology has demonstrated the ability to accelerate the prototyping and manufacturing of seemingly anything and will drive large-scale market disruption of traditional manufacturing processes and supply chains.
Leonar3Do + Leap Motion Turns Leopoly Into Fully Immersive, 3D Tool
Just like Leonar3Do's classic products, Leopoly can be used in stereo 3D mode. Moreover, by combining Leonar3Do's 3D mouse and Leap Motion's Controller, Leopoly turns into the first fully immersive 3D design tool. This provides users with the most intuitive design tool and a unique experience so they can sculpt in the virtual space using their hands or Leonar3Do's 3D mouse.
"My vision has always been to create user-friendly products for everyone enabling them to draw and create in 3D. With Leopoly, users get a game-like experience that is engaging, social and fun -- all at once," stated Daniel Ratai, founder of Leonar3Do. "What makes this incredibly exciting is that this wave of young minds form the backbone of the next generation of business creators and entrepreneurs, who will have been taught and trained to think, visualize and build entirely in 3D – potentially unleashing a new industrial 3D revolution."
Pricing, Availability and Requirements
Leopoly is immediately available. Using a freemium pricing model, Leopoly is free to all users. An enhanced version of Leopoly is also available and comes with premium features such as unlimited importing and exporting of designs, a personalized online gallery, and access to a range of advanced sculpting tools. The premium version requires a monthly subscription of $9.99 per month or $74.99 annually. Leopoly is compatible with 3D printers.
At CES, Leonar3Do is showcasing Leopoly, Leonar3Do's hardware kit and compatible software applications among other offerings.
A service of Leonar3Do, Leopoly is the industry's first browser-based, 3D creative playground and social community that brings out the digital or 3D designer in everyone. All models created and saved on Leopoly's site are available for further designing and shaping by the entire Leopoly community. Easy and fun, Leopoly's design tools and more than 15,000 3D objects help users ready their design for 3D printing in no time. Combined with Leonar3Do's VR Hardware Kit, Leopoly is the only full immersive 3D tool. It transports users out of the flat 2D world and drops them into the exciting world of 3D modeling.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
