Generative 3d modeling for 3d printing workshop by parametric | art at Budapest 3D Printing Days

Algorithmic Art

The 3d tools which will be taught in this course are Rhino + Grasshopper and Meshlab; and we will optimize our 3d models for 3d printing using Netfabb Basic, Meshmixer and Repetier/Slic3r. Netfabb. Netfabb Basic is a freeware for handling of files on stl-format.

If you have a Windows machine, you can try using the professional software Netfabb to repair this model. Netfabb is free for students, but for the rest of us it costs $30, per month. What do you do when your 3D model is broken?
