Michael C Borish

Research Staff

Dr. Michael Borish is a research staff member at ORNL’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF) having joined in 2017. At the MDF, he engages in a wide range of disciplines within Computer Science as they relate to industrial additive manufacturing.  This research encompasses visualization, augmented reality, path planning, and computer vision, to name a few.  He hopes to expand the boundaries of what we define as manufacturing technology. He is also interested in altering established paradigms of operation particularly as it relates to slicing and path planning and has been developing custom slicing software to that end. He has also built an open-source community around slicing software to advance the state of the art in path planning for industrial additive manufacturing.
