What is Computational Thermoforming?

Computational thermoforming is the process where a 3D design is printed on a plastic sheet and the plastic sheet is thermoformed over the 3D printed tool. The result of forming parts using computational is you have a full color 3D part.

Example of Computational Thermoforming:
