Math Exhibition using Low-cost 3D Printers: introduction


The inspiration for this project was born when a colleague of Enrique Canessa has referred to this site:
where are displayed beautiful representations of curves or surfaces described by mathematical formulas, reproduced with kind of professional 3D printers.

Naturally, professional printers have accuracy and print quality that absolutely can’t be compared with low cost 3D printers.
We asked whether, applying various techniques and precautions, objects of a certain complexity that are normally made with professional printers, could be reproduced also with low-cost models and which was the quality that could be reached in prints.
