For over 20 years at MachineWorks we have been developing polygonal mesh solutions for 3D software developers who require solutions to complex geometric problems. MachineWorks APIs have been used by OEMs to gain quick access to market and to help them produce world-class applications.
The Polygonica software toolkit delivers a significant breakthrough for processing large point cloud data. Handling data derived from 3D scanning can be extremely time consuming but thanks to Polygonica’s algorithms for efficient handling of points, automatic registration, fast alignment, effective noise reduction, smooth surface creation, automatic segmentation and mesh generation, the manipulation of point clouds becomes much easier.
Polygonica’s hole filling capabilities have been enhanced with new algorithms which respect the surface curvature and can automatically detect islands and connect them to the correct holes. Multiple holes can be automatically filled through a single API call, significantly improving the performance when handling large meshes.
Together with customers, MachineWorks staff set their minds to work on a shared vision by transforming ideas into algorithms which can then translate into robust and high-performance products.
Manufacturers developing 3D software for CAD/CAM/CAE, prototyping software, reverse engineering, industrial design, product design, CNC machine or additive manufacturing will often require advanced 3D modelling functions that Polygonica technology can provide to help enhance products and give users a distinctive competitive edge.
Polygonica component technology has established itself in the additive market as the go-to technology for mesh healing, offsetting and Boolean operations, serving leading hardware and software manufacturers including Renishaw, 3D Systems, Desktop Metal and Stratasys. You can join the Polygonica team for a demo at formnext 2018 on stand E90 hall 3.1 in Frankfurt Messe, Germany from the 13-16th of November.
