Creating and Printing 3D Objects from Software

If you are wondering how programs can create 3D objects this seminar will give you some ideas. We are going to look at a couple of things. First off we are going to find out how we can use a C# program to go from a depth map produced by a Kinect sensor to a solid object that can be printed.

Then we are going to dive inside a CAD program and write some Python code which will allows us to print the weather forecast as a solid object.

Finally we are going to find out how a Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) printer can be made to print out the designs that we have created.

Should be fun.
