DESIGN RULES WITH MODULARITY FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Abstract

Design rules in additive manufacturing (AM) can help ensure manufacturability, which can be viewed as compatibility between designs and the fabrication processes that produce those designs. Additionally, such rules frequently provide direct guidelines or constraints for designing AM-destined parts. We represent such design rules as sets of modular components and associated formalisms. This representation can be more easily interpreted and efficiently implemented, independent of context. It also enables designers to reconfigure new design rules, rather than create new rule from scratch, from individual components representing process- specific parameters for different AM builds and processes.
