You may remember that last week we released the Thickening Tool. It allows anyone to turn their 3D model into a printable file with just a click. But how does the technology work? Read on to find out. Sculpteo’s Thickening Tool uses a system of complex geometric algorithms to complete its process. However, for a more poetic explanation: the object does not grow, it reforms. What is the difference? Well, if a 3D model were to...
