Leopoly: A Modeling Software for 3D Design and Virtual Reality

Published on March 11, 2024 by Carlota V.

Leopoly offers a range of cloud-based 3D modeling tools, suitable for both beginners and advanced users. Tailored to cater to the demands of the 3D printing market, it also meets the needs of the virtual reality and augmented reality space, facilitating easy design and visualization of 3D models. Among its portfolio, LeoShape, Leopoly’s CAD/3D design engine, stands out as it enables users to model ideas, analyze them, and securely send them to a 3D printer, whether starting from scratch or using existing files. With offerings like LeoTrainer, zSpace (formerly known as LeoSpace), and ShapeLab, Leopoly provides comprehensive solutions for 3D printing needs to both individuals and businesses.

These tools have been developed by the Hungarian company Leopoly over the past ten years, bringing together millions of users worldwide. Initially tailored for beginners, subsequent iterations have evolved to address more specific and advanced demands. This prompted the company to imagine a modular solution, capable of offering several functionalities according to different needs. Let’s take a closer look at what exactly is offered.

What Are the Features of Leopoly?

As explained above, the software offers several types of tools: LeoShape, LeoTrainer, zSpace and ShapeLab. LeoShape is the first product developed by the company, capturing our interest due to its tailored alignment with the demands of the 3D printing industry. It is a cloud-based tool that relies on voxel and vertex modeling to create precise and complex meshes. It is capable of automatically generating tailor-made designs and offers tools for sculpting, 3D texturing, cutting, and engraving.

Popular within the medical industry, LeoShape can easily digitize, simplify, and automate the production process for custom-fit wearables, implants, and healthcare products. Furthermore, it improves visualization by allowing users to see the dimensions of the part, its structure in space, and more. Finally, it can analyze a 3D model and detect potential errors before printing. Several export formats are currently available, including .STL and .OBJ for 3D printing.

Regarding the other software solutions of Leopoly, while we won’t delve deeply into their specific functionalities, it’s worth noting that LeoTrainer provides immersive VR training courses. Additionally, zSpace  offers VR/AR experiences for exploring and visualizing diverse environments (think testing home layouts for renovations), and ShapeLab serves as a modeling laboratory where anyone can unleash their inner artist in mere minutes.

The platform offers an initial meeting with an expert to choose the best options for your needs (which will also determine the price). However, it is worth noting that Leopoly’s modular feature set enables users to pay for only the features they need. Don’t hesitate to visit the Leopoly website to find out more!
