    Voxel Printing using Procedural Art-Directable Technologies



    A procedural art-directable workflow is developed for voxel 3D printing using existing digital effects technologies. Customized for the Stratasys J750’s unique materials, the system produces large-scale prosthetic eyes as a case study for film and display work.
