Lagoa buys 3DTin

Workflow in 3DTin. The browser-based 3D modelling tool has just been acquired by online rendering and collaboration platform Lagoa. You can see more demo videos on 3DTin’s YouTube channel.

Promising online and collaboration platform Lagoa has acquired 3DTin, the browser-based 3D modelling tool.

Simple browser-based modelling tools
Launched in 2010, 3DTin was the first browser-based 3D modelling system, enabling users to create simple 3D models inside a standard web browser by manipulating geometric components.

It supports grouping and symmetry, but the feature set won’t give developers of offline modelling tools too many sleepless nights.

A toehold in the 3D printing market
Although technology from 3DTin will find its way into Lagoa – the develop says that the acquisition will it to improve Lagoa’s scene-editing capabilities – it intends to maintain 3DTin as an independent solution.

That gives it a foothold in the expanding consumer 3D printing market: interesting, since the early audience for Lagoa itself has consisted largely of design and visualisation professionals.

According to Lagoa CEO Thiago Costa: “We are excited to be giving our support to the growing community of makers, young creators and 3D printing prosumers that make up 3DTin’s user base.”
