Scientific Visualization

  • Joan Horvath


Scientists, engineers, and mathematicians have always used available computer graphics to visualize models of physical systems as well as of abstract concepts. Although computer models on a 2D screen can enable a user to see things that otherwise might not be readily visible, sometimes there is just more intuition to be had with a physical model that can be touched and manipulated. In this chapter we will talk about some early adopters who are using 3D printing to visualize scientific and mathematical concepts.
