Today, Autodesk announces the launch of 123D Sculpt+, a new app that enables students to create 3D sculptures and bring them to life with an in-app 3D print ordering option.

Features include:

* New starting forms including skeletons, base shapes and fully textured example sculptures

* A new color picker with scrolling favorites

* The “pose tool” – allows users to add poseable joints on sculptures

* Photorealistic Materials – from chrome to clay

* New texture brushes

* Enhanced Pixlr Filters

* Preview functionality – users can view sculptures on the community in full 3D without needing to downloading them

* Export creatures as OBJ files with textures for use in other 3D tools such as Autodesk Maya or 3ds Max
