Development of Direct Slicing Software of Three-Dimensional Model Based on Pro/E
The direct slicing software of three-dimensional model which can be run in the Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 environment is successfully developed. The method is the use of the secondary development tool Pro/TOOLKIT, which is used in Visual Studio 2008, using VC++ language to write the dynamic link library files which can run in the Pro/E environment. The software realizes not only the function that direct slicing on three-dimensional models, but also the generation of NC code file through the use of custom class on slice and the Standard Template Library which save the three-dimensional contour data of each slice.
