3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing is a process that has been around for over 30 years. As this technology has grown in terms of capabilities, resolution, and materials 3D software used to create content for it varies as widely as the various ways that the technology actually works.

This Rhino workshop aims to discuss some of the specific application directly related to the Architectural industry, how it can be leveraged, and how different 3D software Rhino, Sketch Up, and Revit can be leveraged to maximize the most from it.

Part 1: Making a watertight model in Rhino

  • Introductory concepts for watertight modeling techniques
  • Check and fix stl errors in Rhino
  • Requirements for quality 3D printed output

Part 2: Optimizing an architectural 3D print

  • Scaling and exporting techniques
  • Minimum thicknesses
  • Optimize models to reduce print time and cost

Part 3: Texturing and full color 3D print output

  • UV mapping techniques and types
  • Render materials
  • Extracting textured geometry
  • Full color 3D print workflows

Part 4: Advanced workflows for 3D printing

  • Model integrity between Revit, Rhino, and, Fusion 360, Sketch Up
