Introduction

Throughout the course of this book, we have examined many issues that affect the 3D printing of a model. We learned how to solve some of these issues by making adjustments with the slicer. However, many problems can occur by way of poor modeling. Modeling for 3D printing utilizes a different approach than what other applications such as 3D rendering and animation may require. A 3D model designed to be 3D ...
