-------------------

With recent advances in three-dimensional (3D) printing technology, it is now possible to produce a wide variety of 3D objects, utilizing computer graphics models and simulations. But while the hardware exists to reproduce complex, multi-material objects, the software behind the printing process is cumbersome, slow and difficult to use, and needs to improve substantially if 3D technology is to become more mainstream.
