Computer Aided Technologies for Additive Manufacturing (CAxMan)
IMATI participates in CAxMan both with the Pavia and Genoa units. The contribution of IMATI within CAxMan will be twofold. On the one hand, we will provide physically-based simulation and analysis tools for optimal industrial design, for example to model injection moulds with optimized cooling channels. On the other hand, we will exploit our knowledge in geometry processing and shape understanding to optimize the process planning for AM, providing customized, printer aware, solutions for all the key building blocks of the process planning pipeline (shape repairing, building orientation, slicing and support structures).
CNR-IMATI, with both Genoa and Pavia units
CNR-IMATI is the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies (IMATI), belonging to the National Research Council (CNR), Italy. IMATI is a centre of excellence in numerical analysis for partial differential equations, computational topology, geometry processing, and statistical analysis. It has a long-standing experience of international cooperation with both research and industrial consortia. IMATI attracts many well-known scientists who visit periodically with the aim of sharing their knowledge in the fields of expertise of the departments of the Institute.
