SHEFFIELD - 18th November, 2013 - MachineWorks Ltd, leading provider of CNC simulation and polygonal solid modelling software toolkits, will be showcasing a preview of the upcoming Polygonica release in Frankfurt at Euromold 2013, on Hall 8 Stand G111.
The new release will focus on handling very large models and supporting colour and application data defined on polygonal meshes.
Some mesh solids, particularly those created from point cloud data, contain huge numbers of triangles. New out of core algorithms in Polygonica will allow the entire mesh to be processed a chunk at a time. Initially, the new release will support mesh simplification for such large solids. The full range of mesh processing operations, including Boolean Operations, solid healing and offsetting, will be available for very large meshes, without compromising the speed and robustness that underpins Polygonica technology.
The new release will allow colour data to be associated with the mesh, so that the integrity of full colour models can be retained even during complex solid healing and Boolean operations.
"The Polygonica development team is working hard at adding colour support to Polygonica's capabilities in order to support the latest generation of 3D Printers" said Dr David Knight, Polygonica Sales Manager. "Full colour and multi-jet printing is become commonplace within the industry. It is important that this data is retained in a consistent fashion when performing automatic healing operations on solid meshes, such as removal of self-intersections, closing open solids and hollowing out of parts."
