Abstract

EEcient geometric algorithms are given for the two-dimensional versions of optimization problems arising in layered manufacturing, where a polygonal object is built by slicing its CAD model and manufacturing the slices successively. The problems considered are minimizing (i) the contact-length between the supports and the manufactured object, (ii) the area… (More)
