Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing

I'll talk about two topics. First, I'll talk about some problems and solutions, technologies and platforms involved in writing my popular mathematics book, "Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing". The book uses 3D printed objects to explain accessible but very three-dimensional mathematical ideas. Second, I'll talk about the undergraduate mathematics course I teach, "Geometry and Algorithms in 3D Modeling". This is a "capstone", project based course, in which students gain practical experience with 3D design software and 3D printers. Based on mathematical and programming skills covered in the course, students design and 3D print mathematical visualizations and other objects.
