Title (EN) CONTROLLED 3-D PRINTING
(FR) IMPRESSION 3D COMMANDÉE
Abstract:
(EN) A control circuit accesses 3-D printing instructions provided by a user and assesses those instructions to determine inclusion of printing authorization from a presumptive source of the 3-D printing instructions. Upon determining that the printing instructions lack such a printing authorization, the control circuit halts further use of the printing instructions. Upon determining that the printing instructions do include that printing authorization, however, the control circuit then further assesses the printing instructions to thereby further test legal suitability of using the printing instructions with the additive-material printer to form that three-dimensional object. Upon establishing the further legal suitability of using the printing instructions, the control circuit then uses the additive-material printer to form the particular three-dimensional object.
(FR) Selon la présente invention, un circuit de commande accède à des instructions d'impression 3D fournies par un utilisateur et évalue ces instructions afin de déterminer si ces dernières comprennent une autorisation d'impression provenant d'une source présumée des instructions d'impression 3D. Après avoir déterminé que les instructions d'impression ne présentent pas une telle autorisation d'impression, le circuit de commande arrête toute utilisation des instructions d'impression. En revanche, après avoir déterminé que les instructions d'impression comprennent effectivement l'autorisation d'impression, le circuit de commande évalue ensuite de manière plus approfondie les instructions d'impression afin de vérifier en outre la conformité légale de l'utilisation des instructions d'impression avec l'imprimante de matériau additif pour former l'objet tridimensionnel. Après avoir établi la conformité légale supplémentaire de l'utilisation des instructions d'impression, le circuit de commande utilise ensuite l'imprimante de matériau additif pour former l'objet tridimensionnel particulier.
