Abstract

We propose a novel hybrid model, the Level Set Grid, to facilitate parallel additive and subtractive processes in hybrid manufacturing. The Level Set Grid combines the strengths of explicit and implicit representations, offering precise modeling of evolving geometries and fast and efficient collision detection. This research focuses on integrating Level Set Grids into the additive slicing and subtractive pathing generation processes, laying the groundwork for future advancements in the parallelization of hybrid manufacturing.
