This post collects some resources about 3D printing in general and 3D math models specifically.
- This paper, by Henry Segerman, is a great place to start learning about 3D printing math models.
- This paper, by Schleimer and Segerman has some more ideas and and explanation of a way to model in R^3 objects which are not naturally 3-dimensional.
- This nice post from the Simons Foundation provides more general ideas.
- This paper, by George Hart, has a fair amount of detail on ways one can use Mathematica’s programming abilities to generate some interesting models.
- This paper, by Knill and Slavkovsky, contains many possible models and a lot of info on ways to produce them in Mathematica.
Related to 3D printing in general:
- Wesleyan’s 3D printers are from Makerbot. Thingiverse has a lot of online resources and ideas about printing with these machines in general.
- and more to come…
