Polygonica software processes polygon meshes and MachineWorks software simulates any type of CNC machining and checks for collisions and gouges in the full machining environment.
Both technologies combined cover requirements from any industry where a high performance Boolean engine is a must. Any heavy lifting of polygons can be handled by MachineWorks and Polygonica's powerful algorithms.
Complex files from automotive industries needing simulation, tight tolerances from aerospace requiring collision checking, corrupt files from design software that need to be made watertight, enormous files from the architectural sector needing simplification, mould offsets requiring modification, toolpaths requiring optimisation, and non-manifold files that need fixing.
HYBRID MANUFACTURING SIMULATION
MachineWorks Software encompasses key functionality for the simulation of both process; traditional CNC machining where the material is being removed; as well as additive manufacturing where the material is being added. Furthermore, MachineWorks software offers analysis of the finished part and a quality check of both processes.
MecSoft uses both MachineWorks and Polygonica
All material removal simulation and rendering in VisualCAM for SOLIDWORKS is driven by MachineWorks libraries, from simple 2-1/2 axis to full 5-axis indexed milling, helping customers making parts. The family of Visual products offer an intuitive combined user interface for CAD and CAM, fully associative toolpath updates, and a wide variety of post processors.
Visual3DPRINT® is a plug-in that MecSoft Corporation created which runs inside the VisualCAD modeler. This product offers efficient, easy & automatic tools for preparing 3D data ready for 3D printing. The seamless combination of VisualCAD’s modeling and extensive file import functionality with Visual3DPRINT’s data preparation tools enables the user to 3D print models from almost any input source and any major 3D format. The libraries used inside Visual3DPRINT for mesh healing are Polygonica libraries.
