One of the key challenges in additive manufacturing processes is to slice 3D CAD models with a simple and efficient algorithm. This paper proposes a new algorithm of slicing CAD models which are represented in STL format into a set of layers. In this algorithm, the 3D model should be saved as STL format file. According to the required thickness of layers… CONTINUE READING
