This book connects the worlds of Grasshopper® and 3D printing, explaining how to transform a design into a series of curves and paths for a 3D printer to use. It teaches how to write and create G-code directly within Grasshopper®, without using scripts or plug-ins, in an easy format for existing Grasshopper® users to understand. Significant experience using the software is not required, but skilled users will be able to take full advantage of the content.
The book focuses mainly on clay 3D printing, but the same logic applies to thermo-filament 3D printing (FDM). The methods taught open up a wide range of new possibilities for 3D printing, like non-planar printing or non-conventional paths for the 3D printer.
