How to make stunning voronoi patterns with Autodesk Fusion 360 and Meshmixer

Thingiverse is a website that just about anybody that’s into 3D printing will have at one point or another have explored. While doing so, there’s a good chance you’ll have at some point stumbled upon a really coolorganic looking design or two based on something called the Voronoi pattern.This is a pattern based on a partitioning of a plane into regions based on distance to to a specific subset of the plane.
