In this primer, we will describe a number of projects that can be completed with a 3D printer, particularly by mathematics professors and their students. For many of the projects, we will utilize Mathematica to design objects that mathematicians may be interested in printing. Included in the projects that are described is a method to acquire data from an… (More)
This manuscript presents a linear algebra-based technique that only requires two unique photographs from a digital camera to mathematically construct a 3D surface representation which can then be 3D printed. Basic computer vision theory and manufacturing principles are also briefly discussed.
