An Object-Oriented Class Library for Scanning Path Generation in SLS/SLM Process
This paper presents an Object-Oriented class library for scanning path generation in SLS/SLM (Selective Laser Sintering/Selective Laser Melting) process. The classes in the library meet the minimal requirement for the scanning path generation. Specially, in order to take advantage of the Multiprocessor technology and save the generation time, parallel computing is considered in the class library. At last, an application was developed using the class library and an experiment is provided to verify the feasibility of the parallel computing algorithm in the library.
