Fuji Xerox & Keio University develop new FAV 3D printing data format that retains object's colors, materials & internal structures

If you’ve ever tried to explain 3D printing to the uninitiated, you will have doubtlessly said something along the lines of “literally any possible shape can be 3D printed”. But this is only true to a certain extent. While hitherto impossible geometries can certainly be made with a 3D printer, those levels of complexity bring their own design problems with them. In an attempt to overcome those hurdles, researchers from Fuji Xerox and Hiroya Tanaka, professor of the Keio Research Institute at Keio University, have developed a completely new 3D printing data format called FAV. While conventional formats store […]
