AbstractThis paper proposes an algorithm that constructs the topological hierarchy relationship of complex slice contours for layered manufacturing (LM). It facilitates toolpath generation for fabrication of multi-material parts and virtual simulation for defect quantification and process optimization of LM. The algorithm consists of two main modules, namely the hierarchy-sorting module and contour-sequencing module. The hierarchy-sorting module builds a parent-and-child list that defines the containment relationship of the slice contours, while the contour-sequencing module arranges the slice contours in an appropriate sequence based on the user's requirements. Topological hierarchy relationship facilitates toolpath planning for multi-material LM and also alleviates some major graphics problems in the virtual simulation of LM.
