Another app plugging into the Shapeways 3D Printing API is the Magic 3D Easter Egg Painter By Vishal Srivastava that uses the accelerometer in iOS devices to navigate around and decorate an Easter egg that can then be 3D printed in full color by Shapeways.
Imagine your Easter Egg as an object floating in the Real World. Your iPhone becomes a Movable Window that allows you to see and paint all sides of your Egg from every possible point of view. STAND UP, hold up your iPhone, and spin around your Egg (seriously!) to see and paint all different sides! Done painting the front of the Egg? TURN ALL THE WAY AROUND the Egg while holding up your iPhone, and you can paint the back! Need to paint the top? Make your iPhone flat, look down at the Egg below you, and you can. Don’t forget to paint the bottom! Turn your iPhone up, so you’re facing the ceiling, and you can paint under the Egg! When you’ve finished creating your Egg, you have the option of ordering a “3D printed” figurine of your creation from inside the app! They make great keepsakes or can be hidden in Easter Egg hunts!
With Easter fast approaching on March 31st 2013 you will need to get your orders in VERY soon to ensure you get your 3D printed easter egg in time for Easter. Download the app now from the App Store and start decorating now.
