Abstract

"The aim of this research is to develop the capability of building 3D ice parts using Rapid Freeze Prototyping (RFP) given the CAD model of the part. This thesis describes the development of software RF3P to achieve process planning and path generation for the RFP process. The software is written in C++ and makes use of the sliced data provided by MAGICS RP, in Common Layer Interface (CLI) format, as the input...This automatically generated software replaces the pre-existing method of manually writing the program"--Abstract, page iii.
