Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing – New Book by Mathematical Artist Henry Segerman

In 2013, I collaborated with Henry Segerman to create a first of its kind collection of 3D Printed Mobiles. Outside of being Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Oklahoma State University, Henry has since established himself as one of the leading figures in the new world of math and 3D printing. This month he has a new book out titled Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing in which he takes readers on a fascinating tour of two-, three-, and four-dimensional mathematics, exploring Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, symmetry, knots, tilings, and soap films.

The book includes more than 100 color photographs of 3D printed models, and has a sister website that features virtual three-dimensional versions of the models for readers to explore.

Read the review on Wired “Can’t Imagine Shapes in 4 Dimensions? Just Print Them Out” and also take a look at Henry’s amazing 3D Printed Mathematical Art.
