3D Printing Path Planning and algorithms for Cura and slicing generation.

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a project in school for my IB Diploma which requires a sort of essay on a topic which relates to mathematics. I'm having a bit of trouble phrasing this and working it out, but I want to learn and understand more about the mathematical processes and algorithms used for slicing, and determining how the 3D printer determines where to go and when to print. I've looked around a bit but I'm having some trouble understanding some of it, so is anyone especially well versed in this topic and could shed some light?

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
