The Study on Reduction of Scanning Path Build Time According to Control of STL file Slicing Height - Application of Small Jewellery

STL File 슬라이싱 높이 조정에 따른 주사경로 생성시간 저감에 관한 연구 - 소형 보석류에 적용

  • Published : 2005.12.01


This paper addresses the correlation between the change of file size and the scanning path build time by the slicing height of STL file. Though the study about STL file has been achieved quite actively scanning path build time using STL file is not investigated so much to be satisfied. The file size depends on the number of polygon created by the slicing height specified. And this number of polygons increases in a regular rate. The correlation between the number of polygons and the scanning path build time is examined and verified.
