  • Patent number: 10369746
    Abstract: A three-dimensional data generation device includes a data division unit, a detection unit, an output command unit, and a data correction unit. The data division unit divides sectional shape data on one layer of a shaped object into mark data for shaping a mark for correction of sectional shape data on a different layer to be output as superposed on the one layer and post-removal data obtained by removing the mark data from the sectional shape data on the one layer. The detection unit detects an amount of misregistration of the mark output using the mark data from a position determined in advance. The output command unit commands output using the post-removal data so as to form the one layer of the shaped object together with the mark. The data correction unit corrects the sectional shape data on the different layer using the amount of misregistration of the detected mark.

The memory stores a cause of an unusual noise that occurs in the other apparatus and intensities of individual frequency components of the unusual noise in association with each other. The estimating unit estimates a cause of the sound that has been produced by the other apparatus, on the basis of intensities of individual frequency components of the sound recorded by the recording unit and content stored in the memory, the intensities being calculated from the sound. The output unit outputs information about the cause of the sound estimated by the estimating unit.
