The Laser Aided Manufacturing Process (LAMP) is a multi-axis hybrid manufacturing process comprised of both an additive process, laser deposition, and a subtractive process, CNC machining. Determination of transformation matrix is one of the most important tasks to bridge the gap between process planning (software) and real deposition/machining process. The first part of the paper discusses an algorithm for computing the position of point/points in three-dimensional space, using homogenous transformation matrices. The second part of the paper discusses about how the algorithm was used in practice to build 3-D parts and part-repair using hybrid manufacturing process.
