Academic Seminar | Geometric Shape Accuracy Control for Cyber-Physical Additive Manufacturing Systems
Topic: Geometric Shape Accuracy Control for Cyber-Physical Additive Manufacturing Systems
Time & Date: 16:00 – 17:00, Mar. 16, 2017
Venue: Room 208, Cheng Dao Building
Guest Speaker: Prof. HUANG Qiang (University of Southern California)
Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM, a.k.a. 3D printing) enables individualized manufacturing of low-volume products with huge varieties and geometric complexity. Control of 3D shape deformation in AM built products has been a challenging issue, particularly under a Cyber-Physical AM environment with diverse fabrication conditions. This talks presents a smart and adaptable accuracy control methodology which entails prescriptive modeling of shape deformation based on limited test shapes, optimal compensation of shape deformation through a close-form solution; Bayesian learning of disparate AM data, transfer learning between different AM process conditions.
