Title: TECHNOLOGIES OF PROGRAMMING MANUFACTURING MACHINES AND CONTROLLING ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS
Abstract:
A system/method for converting a drawing into a model; slicing the model into a plurality of layers; creating a plurality of deposition schedules for the layers, wherein the deposition schedules correspond to the layers; generating a plurality of coordinate sets for the layers, wherein the coordinate sets correspond to the layers, wherein each of the coordinate sets includes a set of start coordinates and a set of end coordinates; selecting a plurality of features from a library for the layers; generating a program based on the features; outputting the program in a delimited format; running a simulation of a deposition based on the program in the delimited format; determining whether a result of the simulation is acceptable based on a parameter; and requesting an additive manufacturing machine to produce a workpiece responsive to the result being acceptable based on the parameter, wherein the workpiece is depicted in the drawing.
