Los Gatos, Calif. - Sixense, a leader in 3D modeling and motion tracking, today announced the launch of its Kickstarter campaign for MakeVR, the world’s most accessible and intuitive 3D modeling solution, designed for 3D printing. The Kickstarter campaign, with a goal of $250,000, will fund the final stages of software development and allow backers to communicate directly with Sixense during the development process. Backers can follow and pledge their support here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/89577853/makevr-3d-modeling-and-printing-for-everyone.

MakeVR allows users to harness their full potential to create, share, buy, trade and print 3D models. The software solution combines a professional-grade CAD engine with the ability to operate with motion-enabled input devices like Sixense’s STEM System. The STEM System gives MakeVR unprecedented ease of use, making content creation for 3D printing more accessible than ever. With MakeVR, modelers can reach into the virtual world to intuitively grab, manipulate, rotate, create, and shape the world and objects within it.

MakeVR features Collaborate3D, a collaborative mode that allows up to five local or remote users to model together in real time within the same virtual environment.

“The challenge of content creation is the critical barrier for consumers getting started with 3D printing,” said Amir Rubin, co-founder of Sixense. “MakeVR will catalyze the consumer 3D printing market by providing the first powerful 3D modeling solution that is both affordable and easy to use. We’re reaching out to the Kickstarter community of makers, designers, modelers, and artists, for their support and feedback.”
