File Format for 3D Printing?
If 3D printing is the Wave of the Future, is there an equivalent of PostScript or SVG for 3D?
I was reminded of this by reading of one of the problems of today's 3D printing:
I think we'll need Bézier surfaces to achieve atomic smoothness.
It's interesting to examine the texture up close. It's possible to see the facets from the original Blender model (the round cylindrical parts are actually high-number polygons, so they are faceted when you examine them up close). In other places, the scan lines from the printing process are more obvious -- as in the top of the wheel quad in Figure 16.
Addendum: After a little more reading, I found it's called OpenSCAD.
