“The goal of this research is to generate a revolutionary improvement to the usability and usefulness of additive repair technology by integrating a set of tools into a seamless work flow. Insufficient automation in the current repair process is a huge hurdle in achieving cost-effective, reliable repairs. Many opportunities have been missed due to inconsistency, quality issues and lack of robustness and flexibility. The present work addresses deficiencies in preparatory steps such as 2D and 3D geometry processing, parameter estimation, and path planning as well as on-machine execution of the path plan. The bulk of the effort is focused on directed energy deposition techniques (DED), however many of the concepts are also applicable to powder bed fusion processes (PBF)”--Abstract, page iii.
