Improved 3D Printing: Near-Convex Decomposition & Layering

Improved 3D Printing: Near-Convex Decomposition & Layering

Written by David

June 8, 2020

Researchers İlke Demir, Daniel G. Aliaga, and Bedrich Benes tackle one of the most popular topics in 3D printing today: optimization. While the many benefits of digital fabrication are oft discussed—from greater affordability, improved speed in production, and the ability to create and re-design without a middleman—challenges continue to arise due to continual innovation. Ever on the search for perfection, users are continually seeking ways to predict mechanical properties, decrease defects, and monitor additive manufacturing systems. 

 .

In this study, the authors focus on reducing the amount of material used, reducing print times, and refining accuracy.

 .

Detailing the efforts of their research in ‘ Near-convex decomposition and layering for efficient 3D printing ,’ we learn more about their ‘divide-and-conquer approach,’ featuring automatic decomposition and configuration of an input object into print-ready components.

“3D printers have both limitations and advantages depending on the coherency between the printer features and […]
