27 Chapter 1 ■ What’s Possible with 3D Printing? Growing Objects The additive process of 3D printing is sometimes referred to as growing an object. To some, that may seem peculiar since the word grow has organic connotations unfitting for a mechanical machine that builds something. But, if you have ever had the opportunity to watch a 3D printer in action, growing an object is an apt way to describe the process because materials are deposited layer by layer. This layer-by-layer process depends upon the type of 3D printer being used.

Most of these packages were designed for a specific industry intention, such as computer-generated animation, architecture, or 20 Chapter 1 ■ What’s Possible with 3D Printing? manufacturing. For example, tools such as Autodesk’s Maya and Maxon’s Cinema4D have been developed for animation. But while both of these software packages have robust modeling capabilities, the intention was never specifically for 3D printing, and these packages have many other functions that may or may not be applicable for 3D printing.
