SFF processes have demonstrated the ability to produce parts with locally controlled composition. In the limit, processes such as 3D Printing can create parts with composition control on the length scale of 100 microns. To exploit this potential, new methods to model, exchange, and process parts with local composition need to be developed. An approach to modeling a part’s geometry, topology, and composition will be presented. This approach is based on subdividing the solid model into sub… CONTINUE READING
