A Data-Driven Approach to Complex Voxel Predictions in Grayscale Digital Light Processing Additive Manufacturing Using U-nets and Generative Adversarial Networks

Digital light processing (DLP) vat photopolymerization (VP) additive manufacturing (AM) uses patterned UV light to selectively cure a liquid photopolymer into a solid layer. Subsequent layers are printed on to preceding layers to eventually form a desired 3 dimensional (3D) part. This data set characterizes the 3D geometry of a single layer of voxels (volume pixels) printed with photomasks assigned random intensity levels at every pixel. The masks are computer generated, then printed onto a glass cover slide. Geometry of the printed voxels is characterized by laser scanning confocal microscopy. The data were originally curated to train image-to-image U-net machine learning models to predict voxel scale geometry given arbitrary photomasks, as described in the publication "A Data-Driven Approach to Complex Voxel Predictions in Grayscale Digital Light Processing Additive Manufacturing Using U-nets and Generative Adversarial Networks". Data are provided in a raw (native microscope format and photomask image) and processed into aligned mask-print training pairs. A total of 1500 8 pixel × 8 pixel (i.e. 96 000 pixel interactions) training pairs are provided. Jupyter notebooks for various steps in process are also provided.
