In Exploration: A Person Processes Gcode

2016

 

3D printing is a unique way of building

that elevates our crafting to new

heights. What stands out about this

methodology is the use of Gcode,

the unseen language that translates a

3D rendering to a set of instructions

for the extrusion head of the 3D printer.

By reading, editing, and visualizing

Gcode, I have investigated the ways that

a person can listen to coordinates and

extrude a structure with what is most

translatable to us: icing.
