3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. Mathematica makes it possible to take complex algorithmically generated geometry and immediately output it for 3D printing--allowing the creation of physical 3D objects and models. ...
I am trying to figure out how to mathematically represent the MMA 9 Spikey in order to send to a 3D printer. According to this page, " In particular, spikeys for version 2 and up are based on a ...
Alright, I got a my first 3D print done of a pseudosphere using parametric plot and a deflated sphere using a contour plot, but when I try ...
Are there thorough tutorials on 3D printing for Mathematica? It seems that being able to export Mathematica files for 3D printing is unfortunately still a novelty, but it's vital for my business ...
I am new to Mathematica, and I'm looking for a way to create patterns on the surface of 3D objects. One thing I have not been able to do is create a hexagonal mesh on a torus. What I would like to ...
How do you export the result of a RevolutionPlot3D to STL for printing? I am a tyro when it comes to 3D rendering and printing. Thanks for any help. Jeff Thomson
I keep seeing reference to use of Mathematica as a CAD tool (for instance: http://www.makerbot.com/support/guides/design/). I'd like to use it as such if feasible, but I'm having trouble locating ...
I found a version of the Mathematica spikey in 3D printable format (STL) at the Shapeways site that was hollow. Here it is when viewed in MeshLab: You can see there's a bit cut out of the end, and ...
More than one hole, I mean… I’m trying to export from Mathematica into the X3D format, with the longer term goal of generating 3D figures for PDF inclusion. But I'm stuck at the first step: ...
