This is Day 1 of my collection of printable equations. To see the whole collection, go to:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:227210
I thought I'd start off with a classic sin function. Two full periods shown.
- units are in mm and degrees - a = 35, b = 72 - Range(x) = 0 to 100
I've always been interested in different ways to visualize and explore data. I thought it would be cool to try to print 3d representations of equations. The graphing libraries I could find weren't flexible enough for what I needed, so I wrote a Python program to take an equation and plot it in Openscad using the polygon command. The 3d equation is mounted on a stand that also displays the text form of the equation.
I'm going to post one equation per day until get bored or people lose interest. If there's a particular equation you'd like to see, leave a comment and I'll give it a shot.
