3D printing presents tremendous benefits over the conventional architectural workflow. Architects and designers can print complex designs with less materials and labor, and rapidly iterate with ease.
A successful transition from CAD model to printable file relies on a baseline understanding of design for 3D printing. This white paper covers how to make smart modeling decisions, from choosing scale to designing for assembly to post-processing, and how to use these strategies in common software ecosystems.
