3D Modeling Applications for 3D Printing | Inside3DP 3D printing has many applications and artistic expression is one of its finest uses today. Now, the question is what applications should one use to make art with 3D printing? CAD is not always the best choice. Here are a few good choices to utilize 3D printing for artistic expression. Modo by The Foundry, formally known as Luxology A polygonal modeler is one of the older forms of making 3D content. They also have multi-resolution sculpting which allows for clay-like modeling. Modo works with popular file formats such as OBJ and STL. ZBrush by Pixologic ZBrush is a polygonal application, but operates in a very different way from Modo. It has been used in many industries even before 3D printing, from art to games and movies all the way to industrial design. Now with the advent of 3D printing, ZBrush has found another great use. The only major issue with ZBrush is its rather unconventional interface. Blender’s major issue is, as with zBrush, it has an unconventional interface.

Introduction to 3D Printing Introduction to 3D Printing The next industrial revolution is all about personal fabrication, and it’s happening now. 3D printing is poised to unlock the potential in every person to create, innovate and fabricate. It’s already transforming manufacturing; soon it will change the world. Recognizing the profound implications of 3D printing for the future of design and manufacturing, Stratasys Education has designed this course to prepare students for current and emerging careers in those fields. Students will begin their careers equipped with practical 3D printing experience and a critical eye for the technology’s advantages and limitations. From there, the possibilities are theirs to explore. Upon course completion, students will be able to: Download the full curriculum guide.

Geodesic Sphere with Processing and Makerbot Replicator 2 | Funbie Studios We have been having a bit of fun with Processing lately. For this post, we will talk about using Hemesh. Hemesh is a 3D mesh library developed for use in Processing, by a 38 year old medical radiation physicist during his free time. For a start, we has try our hands at creating a geodesic dome sphere and of course, printing it! To create the geodesic dome, we started off with the HEM_Lattice which is found in the modifiers folder of the Hemesh. This is the model we ended up in processing! Geodesic Sphere in Processing This is how it looks like when it is printed in glow in the dark filament at 0.2 mm layer height. We noticed there’s some droops at the triangular meshes. We can’t help playing ping pong with the sphere.

Nested Balls 3D Model Here is a nested series of seven spheres which can rotate freely, independently of each other. This construction is an homage to the long tradition of turning concentric ivory spheres on a lathe. As outlined on this page, this artistic tradition started in Nuremburg in the seventeenth century and is still carried out in parts of Asia. Each sphere is based on the edges of a different Goldberg polyhedron. From inside to inside, they are: 2, 0 (42 faces); 2, 1 (72 faces); 3, 0 (92 faces); 2, 2 (122 faces); 3, 1 (132 faces); 4, 0 (162 faces); 3, 2 (192 faces); When built, the twelve pentagons are aligned in all the spheres, so you can look right through them in to the center and out the other side.
