Prototype: Basic 3D model builder for iPad

Overall Concept: iPad app for teaching 3D spacial awareness and modeling to kids. The app allows to create and print 3D shapes. Core functionality is a basic 3D model builder using cubic shapes and controls similar to the MineCraft game. The app creates STL files ready for 3D printing and sends these files to either a local 3D printer via AirPrint or a print-on-demand service via RESTful API call.

Target audience:

- Children ages 7 and up

User Interface Goals:

- Simple to use

- Quick to learn

This project is the first in a series of 5 projects to prototype a simple 3D modeler. This is not for the entire app - just a very basic initial proof of concept.

Prototype 1:

- The prototype is a basic 3D shape modeling tool that has user experience similar to Minecraft: a lighted 3D scene with the floor plain, tap to add a cube, tap+hold to remove a cube.

- iPad only, landscape only.

- No app icon, buttons, icons, or any design is needed. No need to save the shape that was built.

- Use of a 3D engine such as Unity is OK but pure Open GL ES would be ideal.

Please see attached stories and their acceptance criteria for details.
