The actual software process of 3D printing is relatively simple, so I have decided to show a very basic flow chart of how you can create an object. Please note that the image used in the flow chart do not correspond to each other, it is just showing each stage at a conceptual level.
Original SVG (scalable vector graphic) available here.
Even though this is just a simple object, made from geometric shapes it shows that we are able to produce objects purely from scratch and in house.
