Why are we being forced to use the (APP STORE), even from the developers site where there is a direct link to the Windows version.

I guess this app is going to become paid version soon. Better stop complaining and go get it faster :)

@Rwolff,

I agree with you, given the fact that the Windows versions are available for download at the developer's site. But then again, it's free -- for the time being anyway -- so one can't kvetch too much.

Because Windows doesn't have an App Store! You'll understand the beneficts of having it one day.

Ebatalha, from the lack of ;) I will assume you serious. As apple moves ever closer to ios on the desktop "one day" you find the only applications available to you are those that apple feels for what ever reason are appropriate. Its been many years since I had a need for a big brother and it be an eternity before I except BIG BROTHER.

I'll just show you one scenario, the Android Market! And now think of what a non-controlled system could cause to it's users!
What's the real problem of having an AppStore account?!

@Ebatalha - i have no problem with the app store per se, and quality control is indeed a powerful argument for it. however, i do have a problem with it becoming the only distribution channel.

for one thing, most such quality control processes don't scale well, which can lead to rules that confuse even the reviewers, rejections for trivial/nonsensical reasons, long waiting times for developers, and to the persistence of newly discovered bugs for unreasonably long times (which undermines the whole idea of quality control). whereas a dev can quickly fix a bug in software they distribute themselves, it took the app store weeks if not months to catch up. now it seems to go in the other direction, where you end up downloading apps that invade your privacy without your knowledge because there isn't sufficient quality control (15 min per app max? not enough), and some companies have learned to manipulate app store rankings, so what you see as "most popular" isn't true.

apple's annoying "i know you better than you know yourself" attitude can make the app store into an obstacle. for example, just try to download 123d-make on a machine that's still running snow leopard. you can't; the app store insists on directly installing, and 123D-make is a mountain lion app. that's stupid; i'm a system administrator, and often download software that's to be installed on other machines. the app store makes this a royal pain, disrupts my workflow, and tries to actually make my procedures less secure. i do no direct installs, ever.

furthermore, such a concentration of power in the hands of a single manufacturer is philosophically dangerous -- it can easily result in content control (we are already seeing that). no, thanks. i decide what runs on my system, not apple. i don't know about you, but my system is stable, runs well, and i've yet to fall for any scam or hack. i do fine downloading and testing apps through macupdate and other community sources. crowd-sourcing works well for quality control.

closed systems are not good for anyone, really, except those who learn to manipulate them for profit. that's not us regular users.

Well… I like eco-systems. And exclusivities too.

Another problem with MAS-only apps is that generally it is then very difficult -- if not impossible -- to get a copy of an older version that is usable on (not so much) older OS's, e.g. ver. 1.1 of this app worked on 10.6, but 1.2 only works on 10.7+.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.

123D Make lets you turn 3D models into real world creations made out of any flat material that you can cut!

Easily convert any 3D STL or OBJ file into a physical object using automatically generated 2D build plans and animated assembly instructions.

Features:
  • 4 Build Techniques
    • Stacked - Create objects by cutting out cross sections and stacking them on top of each other.
    • Interlocked - Create slotted assemblies that go together even without adhesive.
    • Curve - Define the sweep of your interlocked slices with an editable spline for curvy shapes.
    • Radial - Define an axis of rotation around which interlocked slices are assembled, ideal for rounded shapes like bowls.
  • Custom Materials
    • Choose from preset materials or define your own sheet size, thickness and kerf from which to build your project. Your build plans are automatically updated on the fly to maximize the use of your material, while the 3D view always shows you what your finished product will look like.
  • Object Size
    • Define the final size of your final real-world object and your build plans are updated automatically. Create objects of any size that you are able to physically cut!
  • Interactive Slice Direction and Distribution
    • Adjust the angle and spacing of your construction using intuitive manipulators to get the look you want.
    • Adjust the positioning of individual slices to right where you need them.
  • Modify Form
    • Hollow - Automatically hollow out your model to cut down on final weight, minimize material use, or to create hidden cavities in which to hide treasures.
    • Thicken - Thicken your model interactively to make thin parts more manufacturable or to give your model a more cartoony look.
    • Shrinkwrap - Great for closing models that have holes or very fine details.
  • Assembly Instructions
    • Animated assembly instructions let you see how your model will fit together prior to cutting out your parts.
    • Once you are ready to put your cut parts together, the assembly animation can also be used to guide you step-by-step.
  • Save 2D build plans
    • Create a free Autodesk account and export your 2D build plans as EPS or PDF files that are ready for cutting with everything from a laser cutter to a bandsaw.
  • 123D Community
    • Access the 123D Community Gallery to download models and projects from users all around the world.
    • Share your projects with other users to get feedback and iterate with the global 123D community.
