Abstract

With the invention of 3D printing, mathematics has been transformed from abstract ideas that can only be sketched on a blackboard, to physical objects that you can hold in your hand. In this talk we'll see how to go from an idea of some shape, to a mathematical  model, and finally to a physical object. A 3D printer will be on hand to see in action.
