It’s been less than a year since we launched Modio for iPad but a lot of things have happened.

Modio got some glowing reviews right from the start and the maker community quickly embraced the app and started to experiment with its possibilities.

We released Modio for iPhone, added new content and features, ran a successful design challenge with Thingiverse and were constantly amazed by the things our users designed and 3D printed.

During this time we also got to know the good people at Autodesk pretty well and it was clear that there was a lot of synergy between our plans for Modio and what Autodesk is doing in the field of 3D printing. Autodesk soon approached us about joining their team and we accepted.

Since then we’ve stayed busy. We’re pretty excited to be finally able to tell you about the acquisition and our new release. Modio has been renamed Tinkerplay and is now available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows tablet devices. We’ve also added new content, customizable environments and more options to get to print files. Please download Tinkerplay and let us know what you think.

You may be wondering why the name change? Well, Tinkercad is an incredible web app from Autodesk that allows you to create custom 3D parts and we will be working on making Tinkercad and Tinkerplay work closely together in the future. As a first step, we’ve added a number of Tinkerplay parts and connectors to Tinkercad so you can start to experiment with making your own parts.

We hope you’ll continue to have fun with Tinkerplay and look forward to seeing all the amazing things you’ll make with it. We’re working on a lot of new content and features so stay tuned – we’re just getting started…
