Algorithm of the Scanning Path Based on SLC Files in Rapid Prototyping
The paper analyzes the structure of SLC file format which is used in rapid prototyping technology, and studies the algorithm of the scanning path through improving the line-filling algorithm. The scanning path is carried out with VC++ software and the wind power generator blade and car logo are dissected to validate the algorithm. At last, the paper analyzes the influences of the slice thickness and hatch gap on the paths, and compares the file sizes and the scanning path length under different file formats and scanning parameters.
