Mathematica is a software program from Wolfram Research. Similar to something like processing, you can quickly see visual outcomes from typed commands. This program is mostly used for computation and creating graphs in the fields of math, science and engineering, but it can also be used as a graphic design and modeling tool. Unfortunately, it's slightly pricey, but if you already have a copy, using Mathematica for 3D models is certainly a way to get more bang for your buck!
Thanks to Mathematica's Export function, you can create geometric and complex 3D graphics and save them as .STLs for printing. With a little editing in Tinkercad and gentle finishing, resin prints from the Autodesk Ember can beautifully reflect light and color thanks to intricate polygons!
Let's get started. For this process, you'll need:
- A Log-in to TinkerCad
- SLA 3D printer of your choice. I used the Autodesk Ember, which printed quite nicely due to great machine resolution!
