3D Printing

Using several programming languages (Java+ImageJ), or software tools with programming facilities (Povray, Blender) , I define and print 3D mathematical objects.

3D anamorphosis



Based upon the work of George Hart, I developped tools for defining and building polyhedral arrangements of playing cards. With a slight modification of the programs, I am now able to describe 3d objects using the same principles.

Cardioidal Variations

Based upon Pedoe's method of construction of a cardioid.

Three Dimensionnal Anamorphosis

3D printing offers the opportunity to give life to virtual and theoretic objects.
3D anamorphosis, where the distorted object is no longer a flat image, but a real sculpture, is a perfect example: designing the computed shapes would be impossible without it.

Learning how to define and produce 3D printed objects is a slow process. I sometimes make some tries.
