SHEFFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM, 3rd March - This year’s edition of the AMUG Conference will be held at the iconic Hilton Chicago overlooking Lake Michigan from the 19th to the 23rd of March. The MachineWorks team will be showcasing Polygonica at booth number 9.
On display at the Polygonica stand will be innovative new algorithms for processing polygon meshes for 3D printing, including feature recognition, point cloud meshing and defeaturing, remeshing and shortest path calculation.
Polygonica’s latest advancements include handling of point-cloud data suitable for interactive applications. There is a wide range of functionality on offer from point cloud set registration to meshing. Others include filtering, smoothing, sampling and normal calculation. Polygonica brings increased flexibility in manipulating point cloud data with multiple variations in which operations can be applied to different sets of data.
The remeshing API in Polygonica allows users to obtain better quality solids with more regular faceting. The uniformity of the triangles improves the robustness of any further polygon processing required.
Polygonica’s collision detection algorithm not only detects the collision but provides metrics about the severity of a clash. When solids only marginally intersect with each other, a negative tolerance can be set to disregard these types of clashes.
MachineWorks have been invited to join the speakers list at the AMUG Conference 2017, and Dr Fenqiang Lin, Managing Director of MachineWorks, will be talking about the challenges and opportunities of polygon modelling by offering over two decades of experience developing software for handling polygon meshes. You can listen to Dr Lin’s talk on Monday, the 20th of March at 1.30 pm in the Lake Huron room on the 8th Floor.
Dr Fenqiang Lin, MachineWorks Managing Director said: “The AMUG organisers offer the perfect environment to get the most out of the latest additive manufacturing technologies in a unique context surrounded by world experts.”
The Polygonica team welcomes visitors of the AMUGexpo, to stand number 9 to test the performance of the powerful software and its handling of polygon mesh functionality including full colour automatic mesh repair, offsetting of open and closed meshes, Boolean operations, mesh analysis and mesh decimation.
