Abstract

To ensure uniform documentation of support structure information, a concept is presented that enables a standardized depiction of support structures in technical drawings based on ISO 128-3. To this end, requirements for a uniform depiction are defined and a procedure for drawing entry is presented. The drawing entry should contain all production-relevant support structure information. The standardized documentation of support structure information in technical drawings is intended to ensure a simple, clear and safe exchange of information between business units or different companies along the value chain. As a result a possible drawing entry of support structures was developed. To distinguish between different support structure types, a standardized depiction of geometrical information in a specification field is shown. The specification field gives a detailed description of the support structure type, the geometry as well as the connection to the part and the building platform. Also uncommon support types like lattice structures or CAD based support structures can be implemented. To ensure the usability the depiction is editable and extendable.
