3D Design in Mathematica

Welcome! My name is Chris Hanusa. I have been doing 3D design using Mathematica since 2014 to supplement my teaching at Queens College and to create mathematical art and jewelry. Below are some materials I have created and curated to help newcomers get started.

Materials for the Workshop held at New York University's ITP:

Save ALL of the following files into an easy-to-find folder. We will be generating STL files in the same folder. As we go through these tutorials, don't forget to save your work.
