Full session (30 minutes)

Looking at an everyday 3D printer - the printing procedure looks quite natural and straightforward. However, like traditional construction techniques things are not so simple. Indeed, just as scaffolding is extensively used in many building techniques, similar physical support is needed during the 3d printing process; different 3D technologies use distinct scaffolding methods. In this talk, after introducing the 3D printing ecosystem in general and the celebrated polyjet(™) technology in particular will describe the intrinsic difficulties of supporting the polyjet printing process, and hopefully demonstrate bone-fide algorithmic solutions to these problems.
