We're happy to announce that AbFab3D has reached its 1.0 milestone goals. The codebase architecture changes have settled down, the unit tests are in place and its starting to feel like a usable codebase worthy of sharing.

AbFab3D is primarily a voxel library. It's a Java based library that can generate highly detailed models for 3D printing. If you've seen the API and asked yourself how you could generate 3D models for printing then this library is for you. Voxel graphics work like traditional 2D pixel graphics where you set the value of a pixel in 3 space(x,y,z). For a lot of geometry creation this is much easier then learning how to make triangle models. If you remember programming LOGO then you can appreciate the ease which you can make cool graphics this way.

Here is a more complete description and some fun pictures:
