“SolidWorks Apps for Kids is something that we all hoped that we had when we were growing up.”
– Chin-Loo Lama, Senior UX Design Engineer at SOLIDWORKS
Were you with me in Dallas when the announcement was made? That SOLIDWORKS has created six apps for kids! This is a game changer for the future of our children. Growing up, the only “modeling app” we had was a box of legos. Now young kids can dream it, design it, and build it.
Altogether there are six apps:
Capture ideas and start a design story using pictures, video, or sound. Create inspiration boards, canvases and collages using any device. Kids can even use their smartphone to add content!
Shape ideas into 3D creations of any form. Anything a child can imagine, they can create with this intuitive and easy-to-use modeling tool.
Style the Shape It creations with color, stickers, backgrounds and more. Everyone loves painting, so we even made it possible to paint right onto the model!
Mechanisms are made fun with touch-friendly, snap together shapes that work like they are actually real. Make things move or draw amazing spiral art… who knew mechanisms could be so exciting!
Show off any creation made in SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids and tell a story using fun interactive slide shows.
Print a creation in 2D, 3D or one of the fun project-based formats and make the creations come to life.
