"Curved-Layer" Laminated Object Manufacturing
A process where a freeform solid object is built by bonding cut layers of material together is called a Laminated Object Manufacturing process. Until today, all ofthe LOM processes utilized straight forward planar cross-sections of the intended object for manufacturing. The "CurvedLayer" project's objective is to perform the LOM manufacturing process on a non-planar crosssection. Thus, the layers are going to be bonded together as non-planar surfaces providing additional strength to the built part as well as expedition ofthe built time for many objects. This project entails both software and hardware development for the implementation of the manufacturing process.
