We’ve covered Ingocraft a couple of times here on GeekDad; it’s easy to see it as the construction toy of the maker-focused future when it lets you use an iOS device to design your own models and a 3D printer to print out more of its giant, plastic, Erector-esque pieces. Indeed, as I type this in my basement, the 3D printer next to me is printing out more Ingos at my daughter’s request.
Ingocraft wanted GeekDad readers exclusively to know that its model-designing iOS app is free to download for a limited time. The app has a little game you can play that will show you some of what’s possible with Ingocraft, but the key component for designers is the Ingo Workshop. Here you can design whatever models you want with the core Ingos (as well as an angle piece I wish they would release) and browse other models the community has made.
While my toddler daughter and I are more “à la minute” Ingo builders, I can see us graduating up to this app as she gets older. Then I’m sure there will be no end of orders for parts!
