Chapter 3. 123D Meshmixer

Meshmixer is the most powerful program in the 123D family. Using Meshmixer, you can merge parametric models with surface models to create your own mashups and mix-ups such as these Open Cell Bunnies (Figure 3-1).

Meshmixer also offers up a full slate of features, including sculpting, stamping out shapes, painting, creating surface patterns, running several types of analyses, and a utility that assists you in creating watertight models that are ideal for 3D printing.

You can also use Meshmixer to print directly to your desktop 3D printer, or send your design to third-party printing companies such as i.materialise, Sculpteo, and Shapeways, which offer diverse options for materials, colors, and finishes.
