How to beat the limitations of 3D printing. So simple it'll blow your mind.

Michael Hansmeyer has developed an innovative way to beat the limitations of 3D printing. 



His detailed files (many based on algorithms that repeatedly subdivide an abstracted traditional doric column, adding decorative elements)  far exceed the detail (triangle count) allowed (or processable) by current technologies.  Instead of cutting back on the details, he's split his files into thousands of horizontal slices, 1mm thick each. 


 And stacked them!
