3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing) in Interior Design
Additive manufacturing works by bringing the design of an object — its shape — into a computer model and then dividing that model into separate layers that are stacked to form the final object. The process reimagines a 3D object as a series of stackable layers that forms the finished object making miniatures. Instead of imagining something and trying to explain it to your clients, why not make it instead? A smaller version of the sculpture you plan to place in their living room goes a long way in showing them how everything will e together, and you no longer have to rely on vague drawings and picture.
