Mass customization is one of the big advantages that 3D printing provides over other types of manufacturing technologies. Because the 3D-printing production pipeline is tightly integrated with 3D-modeling software, each file that is sent to a 3D printer can be modified or customized by using a variety of software-based customization tools. This chapter will explore a few of those techniques that will allow for unique variations in every 3D-printed product that you design.
Customization can be enabled in the 3D-printing process in a number of ways. One way to add customized details is with digital sculpting. ...
