A method and system is disclosed for controlling deposition of material during 3-D printing of an object based on required characteristics/properties of a part/portion of the object.
The characteristics/properties may include, but are not limited to, transparency/opaqueness, reflectivity, magnetism, hardness/softness, electrical conductance, edibility, material lifetime (for an encasement that deteriorates at a predictable rate) and any other property essential to modelling a product for human use.
In accordance with the method and system, multiple injectors are employed during 3-D printing of an object for spraying/depositing more or less weight material onto a base material as per the required characteristics/properties of a part/portion of the object.
In an exemplary instance, the multiple injectors are used for achieving a required weight distribution on an object so that the object/product "feels just right" while holding.
Similarly, the multiple injectors could be controlled to achieve other required characteristics across an object.
The method and system controls deposition of material during 3-D printing of an object based on required characteristic/properties of a part/potion of the object. The method and system helps in reducing number of iterations and R&D efforts/time required to create a product that "feels just right".
The present disclosure may refer to a "method," "a system," "a method and system," or the like. In general, aspects o...
