The additivemanufacturing technologies have recently demonstrated a unique potential in constructing structures with a high degree of complexity, thereby allowing to process almost directly the designs predicted by topology optimization algorithms. These breakthroughs however come along with new challenges. One of them is to overcome the difficulty of building shapes showing large overhangs , i.e. regions hanging over void without sufficient support from the lower structure.
To give a hint of why such regions are problematic from the
