3D Modelling Software for 3D Printers - 01/29/2013

Whether you're an engineer with a revolutionary new widget or the next Rodin of our generation (or an architect, inventor, or what-have-you), 3D printing allows you to turn the shape you've conceived in your mind into hard reality. But, before you can send that revolutionary widget or objet d'art off to the printer, you need to first construct that model. The way to do that is with 3D software. Just take a casual look on CNET, and you'll find a host of 3D design applications, like Autodesk 3ds Max, Rhino 3D or SketchUp. With so many to choose from, it's enough to make you ask, "What do they do?" Or, "Which one is right for you?" At its most basic, 3D software creates mathematical representations-or "models"-of three-dimensional objects. The real potential of 3D design lies in the sheer breadth of its applications. Engineers use 3D modeling to draft parts and design vehicles. Architects use 3D design programs to realize their conceptions of buildings and lan dscapes. Scientists use it to depict detailed models of chemical compounds or geological formations. Special effects movies like Transformers , and video games like the Halo franchise owe everything to 3d modeling, and the list goes on. The term "computer graphics" was first coined by William Fetter back in 1961, when he worked on Boeing Man, the first computer model of the human body. From the 1980s, programs like Wavefront Advanced Visualizer and CrystalGraphics Topas made it to desktop computers. 3D modeling applicatio...
