EVERY 3D PRINT STARTS WITH A 3D MODEL …

A 3d model is generated by a person using CAD software, or from a 3d scan.

Slicing software transforms a 3d model into a sequence of cross-sectional images that are sent to a 3d printer, fusing material as it draws, layer by layer. Hence, the name: Layerfied Designs.

beyond 3d printing?

The part above was produced via injection molding.

What would you make?

A functional part? An artful piece, such as a lamp shade? Limitations are set by machine capabilities and material, but the one to be aware of most of all is imagination.
