Abstract

The article presents an original concept of a 3D printed photopolymer model valuation algorithm – the APPMV algorithm (Algorithm of Photopolymer Printed Model Valuation). Both machine aspects and complexity of a model were taken into account, directly affecting the final time of prototype production. First part of the article briefly discusses the contemporary 3D printing technologies out of photopolymers, along with their application. The next part discusses the elements of the model's valuation algorithm in greater detail, with chronological concept of connections between these elements, in a form of a ready-to-use algorithm for the photopolymer 3D printing process. It turned out that the very important element of the presented algorithm is the Model Complexity Factor (MCF). Value of this factor depends on several elements described in the article, what makes it easier to estimate the final price of the offered product.
