This has several applications in both Engineering and Medical fields. The utilization of the 3D printers for building various working models was also emphasized.
The manual modeling process of preparing geometric data for 3D computer graphics is similar to plastic arts such as sculpting. A live demonstration of the working model was shown which made several realistic plastic products. The Faculty were asked to make a printed model of the main building of the college.
