have the freedom (as it is given for RMPD technologies)
to choose for layer different thickness is very usefull for all the high
units in batch production for small parts

Betreff: [rp-ml] Adaptive Slicing

Dear All,


I would be interested to hear views on the use of adaptive slicing
techniques (varying layer thickness) within the RP/RM industry . To my
knowledge, the use of adaptive layering techniques in commercial
technologies is somewhat lacking although there are a number of references
offering alternative mathematical approaches to a common theme (although
many don't appear to put theory into practise!). Perhaps the problem is
linked to reliability / integrity of adaptive slicing algorithms or more
likely - hardware is restricted to a finite number of slice parameters
in which layers can be successfully be created. I am guessing that DLP and
SLA systems might be a good vehicle to test adaptive slicing methods? As
always views of the RPML members much appreciated.


Incidentally I am putting together a literature review!



Best Regards
