3d fab w/ rhino
Means of fabrication are CNC milling or machining, 3d printing and laser cutting. Once a model is ready in Rhino, milling, printing or cutting is a straight forward task. Everything is done from within Rhino 5. The plugins which prepare the model for fabrication make life quite a bit easier.
Reverse engineering is the process of turning an real world object into a digital file. This is mostly done by means of 3d scanning. In order to create a digital model, the generated point cloud or mesh file has to be processed in order to be able to mill, print or cut.
