Description

Voxel is a fun, easy-to-use 3D-pixel editor. It's like Minecraft without all the mining. Use it to create simple sculptures, 3D icons, game-levels, or just to doodle with blocks.

Voxel now has 3D printing built-in! Order plastic and even metal prints of your models from directly within the app. Models are printed by Sculpteo and shipped directly to you.

Simply tap in empty space to create the first block. From there you can attach new blocks to it by tapping any face. Or, toggle the grid guide to put blocks exactly where you want them. A color palette lets you change colors. Drag your finger on the selected block to rotate your view. Use a two-finger-swipe to rotate the view as well. Use the familiar two-finger pinch motion to zoom in or out -- or just hold your finger in one spot.

Voxel is easy enough for kids to enjoy, but it is also designed for creative adults. Advanced users will appreciate Voxel's layering and animation tools. Upload your models to the online gallery!

Now make models for use with Minecraft -- Voxel now imports/exports .binvox format!
