3Dshap.es allows users to search using shape as the query

3Dindustri.es (3DI) has launched 3Dshap.es, a search engine that navigates 3D content on the Web by shape and sourcing of 3D printable files.

Powered by proprietary 3D search algorithms that organise and search by shape and form, it offers an alternative to navigating 3D content compared to conventional search engines. In this way, it also overcomes differences in language, labeling and naming conventions.

With the imminent arrival of 3D scanning devices embedded in hardware such as the Google Tango phone, Google Glasses and Amazon’s Fire phone, 3D data is set to explode online, while 3D search queries will also increase.
