Adding Voronoi Pattern with Meshmixer

I have always been fascinated with Voronoi patterns and placing them onto objects. They add an organic and random feel to many objects, but they can be difficult to create. I found this cool tutorial on Instructables that uses Meshmixer to add a Voronoi pattern to an object. Since I am new to Meshmixer, this was the perfect tutorial to try.

I made a simple vase, exported it in .stl format and imported it into Meshmixer. Following the Instructables tutorial I added the pattern to the vase. I sliced the vase using Simplify3D’s vase mode which makes the outer shell one nozzle diameter thick. I’m happy with the results.

Typical Voronoi pattern:
