  • Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is an additive manufacturing process capable of producing mixed batches of parts simultaneously within a single build. The build orientation of a part in SLM is a key process parameter, affecting the build cost, time and quality, as well as batch size. Choosing an optimal arrangement of multiple heterogeneous parts inside the SLM machine also presents a challenging irregular bin packing problem. Since the two problems are interdependent, this paper addresses the… CONTINUE READING
