3D printing technology enables artists who might not be trained in sculpturing to use their sketches and digital designs to create 3D sculptures. Digital 3D printing software also empowers artists to visualise the end result and to solve any design issues straight away, without having to waste any precious material.
Many artists use working models before attempting to build the final piece. Thanks to 3D printing, artists can now create made-to-measure models that help them visualise their artwork a bit better than a sketch.
Museums and other art institutions can now use 3D printing to create 3D reproductions of masterpieces that feature the exact same canvas texture, brush strokes, paint thickness, hues and whatnot. It's an excellent way of educating the public and art students about art history, painting techniques and the link between art and technology.
