As part of Google’s Tech Talk video series they has a visit from Vladimir Bulakov who is a 3D graphics research scientist at 3D printing service Shapeways. His talk, 3D Modeling for 3D Printing, explains how he Shapeways are improving 3D modeling methods to make it easier for users to create their own models.
We discuss technical challenges of creation of 3D printable models and what Shapeways team is doing to help developers and regular users to create unique and customizable 3D pieces. In particular we will pay attention to use of AbBab3D – open source software for 3D voxel based modeling library developed by Shapeways.
Shapeways is the world’s biggest 3D printing marketplace where you can make,buy and sell objects to be 3D printed and delivered to your door.
