Mathalicious: Layer Strands On Me

How do we view and create objects in 3D?

In the past, most objects were manufactured away from the home, in factories or special shops. 3D printing promises to change that by making it possible to make practically anything at home. But how does 3D printing actually work?

In this lesson, students are introduced to cross sections through MRI images. Then, students study the connection between objects and their cross sections to understand 3D printing, its benefits, and its risks.
