Unwrapping slicer software – for printing fibrous structures

August 19th, 2020

Project description

The task for this project involves:

  1. Input particle models of fibrous structures from our “Morphogenesis” research code.
  2. Sequence the laying of fibres and matrix materials
  3. Generate print comands for
    a) 6-axis printing
    b) sequence of flat 2.5D sheets for hand assembly

The student will be guided by our printer engineer for the G-code generation, and from our research fellow on the input model data, and intended result of printing.

The goal of this project is for the software to generate G-code to print 3D fibrous structures.

Timeframe: 6 months
