Curvature-based segmentation of powder bed point clouds for in-process monitoring (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Chung Chee Law, A., Southon, N., Senin, N., Stavroulakis, P., Leach, R., Goodridge, R., & Kong, Z. (2018). Curvature-based segmentation of powder bed point clouds for in-process monitoring. In 29th Annual International Solid Freeform Fabrication Symposium - an Additive Manufacturing Conference 2018

This paper presents a curvature-based analysis of point clouds collected in-process with fringe projection in a polymer powder bed fusion process. The three-dimensional point clouds were obtained from outside of the build chamber with a fringe projec... Read More

In-process measurement and monitoring of a polymer laser sintering powder bed with fringe projection (2018)
Journal Article
Southon, N., Stavroulakis, P., Goodridge, R., & Leach, R. (in press). In-process measurement and monitoring of a polymer laser sintering powder bed with fringe projection. Materials and Design, ISSN 0261-3069

We investigate the feasibility of using fringe projection to monitor the powder bed of a polyamide 12 polymer laser sintering machine. In particular, we demonstrate the ability of fringe projection to identify a number of defects arising during the p... Read More
