Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD OF 3D PRINT MODELLING
Abstract:
A method of 3D print modelling comprises: generating a voxel representation of the surface of a target virtual object, associating a counter with each voxel, rendering the target virtual object from a plurality of viewpoints, and for each rendered viewpoint, incrementing the counter associated with a voxel if a first pixel on a portion of the object surface corresponding to that voxel is rendered.
