AbstractObject model data is obtained, representing one or more objects to be generated by an additive manufacturing system. An object model is generated, representing an arrangement of the one or more objects within a build volume, by determining a solution to a packing optimization function. A layer of the object model is analysed to determine a parameter representing the complexity of the layer, and if the determined parameter exceeds a given threshold, the process is repeated by generating a revised object model representing a different arrangement of the one or more objects within the build volume.
