Purdue University researchers have developed two software algorithms for trimming time and material, reducing 3D-printing time by up to 30 percent and the amound of support material by up to 65 percent.
The new PackMerger algorithm works by printing a project in segments that can fit into the printing tray and later be glued together.
Maximum packing density
The algorithm determines how to pack the most elements… read more
