Abstract

From this point forward you should now be familiar with the many design processes and modeling methods being used for 3D printing. You should also have a general understanding of the basic components that make up computer-generated 3D models, the differences between meshes and curves, and a range of 3D modeling workflows from precise to organic. We will now explore these concepts further through a series of lessons that will allow you to begin modeling 3D-printable objects of your very own.
