Slicing is one of the important procedures of rapid prototyping. It affects the time of the production directly. This paper describes how the slicing algorithm works. The authors first scan the model data of the 3D CAD model, and then detect the support feature according to the model data. The slicing algorithm they have developed is a fast, accurate and reliable slicing process for the application of a rapid prototyping system
