Abstract

Recently, as Rapid Prototyping is attracting people's attention, many peoples are actively participating in the research on STL format. The STL files are transformed to be input for RP after modeling in CAD system. When the shape, however, needs to be changed or edited, it is impossible without the original data. So, if the original data is lost, new modeling is required. Therefore, this study suggests a way to edit the shape in STL format and to make the Boolean operation possible between the original and edited shapes. In addition, the reliability was confirmed after going over the errors of the edited data.
