This is a two color cat model for dual extrusion 3d-printing. It was generated through a simulation of reaction diffusion on a mesh. It's derived from the MakerBot "lounging cat" model.

We wanted to play around with using dual extrusion on our Replicator 1 printer to create textured 3D models. We're making an app that takes any 3D model and simulates reaction-diffusion on its surface to yield a 2-color 3D printable model composed of two STL's. What do you want us to test in the app next?

How about a puppy?

WOW! My kids will love this...thanks!

Is there any way you can use the software to do a try-color part? I'm curious for experimentation sake.

Release the source code for the reaction diffusion please :)

when can we get hold of it?
