Food One of the most recent largely mediatized applications for 3D printing is food. On June 14, 2013, NASA awarded a $125,000 contract to build a 3D printer that can make pizzas. In the past, there have been other food projects, including chocolate, pasta, cookies, sugar structures, and 3D printed meats (however, with a price tag of over $300,000 USD, 3D printed meats are far from a viable food source…yet). Fashion While companies such as Nike have traditionally used 3D printing in their engineering design iterations, today 3D printing in fashion has exploded.

Designing the roof truss The CAD package we have chosen is SolidWorks; however, the approach when solid modeling with any of the aforementioned CAD packages (with the exception of TinkerCAD) will be very similar. We begin by creating a detailed 2D sketch of the model in our chosen CAD package as seen in the following figure: A common roof truss detailed sketch From this point, we choose what sections of the sketch to extrude and to what distance. 4 mm thickness and the beams 1 mm thickness as shown in the following figure: A 3D model for roof truss There we have it, one roof truss.
