Question: 3D Printing and Surface Thickness


I recently began learning how to 3D print with maple using the "Export & .stl " command together.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to increase the surface thickness for parametric plots and implicit plots. My hope would be to increase the "extrusion level" so to say.

I came across:

But I am not sure how to extend this idea to a parametric surface or an implict surface.


One more quick tidbit is that I will be trying to print several surfaces arising in differential geometry and algebraic geometry. Severel of these surfaces are open and or have singularities that I would like to "smooth out."


I would love to hear any ideas and thanks!
