Simpleware, a provider 3D image to model software, will collaborate on a future release with MachineWorks, which offers polygon mesh software solutions. Simpleware will integrate MachineWorks’ Polygonica mesh processing libraries into its +CAD module, an extension of its core image processing software ScanIP.
Simpleware +CAD provides a method for the import, interactive positioning and integration of CAD models with image data. The resulting meshes can be exported as multi-part CAD models, or using Simpleware’s +FE module, converted into multi-part volume meshes for physics-based simulation. The new release of the +CAD module will be enhanced by the incorporation of solid mesh healing and boolean operations on STLs from MachineWorks’ Polygonica API.
“We are very pleased that Simpleware has selected Polygonica to provide advanced mesh processing capabilities for their +CAD module. This serves to demonstrate the power and flexibility of our polygon modeling kernel,” said David Knight, sales manager at MachineWorks.
