Reconstruct core samples virtually from sand with the Magic Sand Slicer

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — August 9th, 2021 FDM 3D printers work by taking a model, creating many thin slices of it, and then extruding plastic to produce the desired shape. But what happens if you want to reverse that process, e.g. take many tiny slices of something and build a model digitally? This is commonly done […]
