  • Stereometric Design for Desk· Top SFF Fabrication 

    Bzymek, Zbigniew M; Theis, Scott; Manzur, Tariq; Roychaudhuri, Chandra; Sun, Lianchao; L. Shaw, Leon (1998)
    Solid Freeform Fabrication (SFF) technologies refer to the fabrication of physical parts directly from computer based solid models described by STL (Stereo Lithography) or VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) files ...
  • Reverse Engineering Trimmed NURB Surfaces From Laser Scanned Data 

    Steinberg, Ben; Razdan, Anshuman; Farin, Gerald (1998)
    A common reverse engineering problem is to convert several hundred thousand points collected from the surface of an object via a digitizing process, into a coherent geometric model that is easily transferred to a CAD ...
  • Domain Decomposition and Space Filling Curves in Toolpath Planning and Generation 

    Bertoldi, M.; Yardimci, M; Pistor, C. M; Guceri, S. I. (1998)
    Ever increasing computer performance, along with significant developments in CADI CAM technology and high precision digital motion controllers lead to rapid and significant developments in the field ofrapid prototyping ...
  • Modeling and Designing Components with.Locally ControllediComposition 

    Jackson, Todd R.; Patrikalakis, Nicholas M.; Sachs, Emanuel M.; Cima, Michael J. (1998)
    SFF processes have demonstrated the ability to produce parts with locally controlled composition. In the limit, processes such as 3D Printing,cancreate parts with composition control on thelength scaleiof 100 ...
  • Process Planning and Automation for Additive-Subtractive Solid Freeform Fabrication 

    Pinilla, J. Miguel; Kao, Ju-Hsien; Prinz, Fritz B. (1998)
    New additive-subtractive processes promise to enhance SFF capability from prototyping to true low-volume production. However, to maintain the same degree of process automation as in currently available processes like SLA ...
