Creating Mesh Patterns in @MeshMixer

Creating Mesh Pattern on your CAD Model and Lightweighting for 3D Printing in Meshmixer from Amy Karle on Vimeo.

Great tutorial on how to apply Voronoi like patterns onto meshes using Autodesk MeshMixer.

A number of my fellow artists and makers have asked me how I achieve this mesh aesthetic and were surprised to find out that it is quite simple. I use edit > make pattern in Meshmixer, a free program by Autodesk. meshmixer.com/
I’ve used many programs and solutions for light weighting and piping effects (including Within and Grasshopper/Rhino) but this is one of the simplest. Here is a short video on how to do it + some tips.
I’m interested in how to have more control in the patterns and and would enjoy seeing your work and hearing how you lightweight, pipe and mesh your models… please post in comments below or on the instructables page.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
