Software methods in Mathematica are presented for creating visually interesting 3D forms to be produced on solid freeform fabrication (SFF) machines. Concise examples demonstrate fundamental techniques of procedural design that can be combined and extended in many creative ways. This overview should interest non-programmers who attend mathematical art exhibits of SFF objects and wonder where to begin to produce their own ideas.
