ThingiBrowse for Windows Phone


As an enthusiastic MakerBot Operator and Thingiverse user, I was keen on checking new 3D printable designs on the go, optimized for my mobile devices.

Since the Thingiverse site is not optimized for mobile browsing I decided to create a native app for the Windows Phone platform to provide users with the possibility to check out the digital designs in their phone's look and feel wherever they go. User's of the Android platform shouldn't be worried as I am already planning the Android version of ThingiBrowse.

Some days ago, I released the first version of my free open source Windows Phone app ThingiBrowse. With ThingiBrowse you can browse through the 3D model database of Thingiverse, a free 3D modelling and DIY fabrication community created by MakerBot® Industries.


Feature Set:
  • browse through the "New Things" section on Thingiverse
  • browse through the "Popular Things" section on Thingiverse
  • check out Thing details (File downloads not supported)

ThingiBrowse can be downloaded in the Windows Phone Marketplace at:
