  abstract =     "To achieve better quality of the PolyJet Rapid
                 Prototyping procedure, which originally employs a
                 method of size compensation by scale factors to reach a
                 desired accuracy, we decided to improve the procedure's
                 performance by adjusting scale factors for every part
                 separately. The main accuracy problem of rapid
                 prototyping procedures that are using polymers as a
                 building material is shrinking of a finished layer in
                 the phase of polymerization. To this purpose we used
                 genetic programming that enabled us to acquire a
                 formula for scale factor's determination based upon the
                 geometry of the actual part. The method resulted in
                 optimized scale factors and better overall performance
                 of the PolyJet procedure compared to other rapid
                 prototyping techniques used nowadays.",
