Sheffield UK | June 13th 2022 – MachineWorks Ltd is pleased to announce the availability of example source code supporting data transfer of 3MF files with Polygonica.
Whilst most existing Polygonica customers exchange data between Polygonica and the host-application using direct memory API calls, there are occasions where file transfer directly into, or from, the Polygonica libraries is necessary or convenient. The Polygonica libraries provide APIs to support direct serialisation to and from STL, and also to and from the proprietary .pgs format, which is a fast and convenient way to archive in-session data or transfer data between microservices on a scalable cloud back-end.
The focus of the core Polygonica product team remains to continue to build the best polygon modelling and mesh processing library available, suitable for use in a wide range of industrial applications and markets. Whilst broad file format support is not part of this core goal, the MachineWorks’ Consulting Engineering team is tasked with making life for client software developers easier, so they can more easily and quickly test if the algorithms in Polygonica meet their requirements.
