Complex Processes and 3D Printing

<p>A process which converts 2D evolving cellular automata into 3D printed objects was designed. The<br>process takes into account the limitations inherent to 3D printing processes and materials and bypasses the use of CAD software and manual part design. Alongside the process itself, a software which automates the greater part of this process was developed. A physical model of a cellular automaton was successfully printed and suggests that in the future a process similar to the one developed in this project may be used to convert<br>physics models into 3D objects.</p> <p> </p>
