Machine Works will be exhibiting its Polygonica polygon-modelling software toolkit at the NAFEMS Congress on 17 to 20 June in Quebec City, Canada.
Polygonica offers a range of advanced mesh operations suitable for CAE pre and post-processing, Machine Works says. It is embedded into leading CAE-software systems such as Ansys Discovery, Ansys Spaceclaim, Converge Studio and Synopsys Simpleware.
polygon-modelling software shares its heritage with the Machine Works CNC simulation technology. Now in its 25th year, Machine Works is licensed by seven of the top ten CAM software vendors as cited by CIMdata. With Polygonica, the company brings its high level of quality, performance, innovation and customer support to a wider range of polygon modelling applications, including additive manufacturing and computer-aided engineering.
Demonstrations of some of the key features of Polygonica will include:
• automatic mesh healing
• feature recognition and feature-based defeaturing,
• mesh quality refinement, coarsening and decimation
• Booleans and fuzzy Booleans (gluing),
• isotropic and anisotropic offsetting
• post-processing using fairing and smoothing.
Polygonica is delivered as a set of software libraries to be embedded into customers’ products. Its engines and algorithms allow software OEMs to concentrate their focus more on the needs of their customers and to rapidly bring to market new, unique and competitive solutions.
Along with Windows, Linux and Mac desktops, Polygonica can be deployed on public or on-premise clouds offering large manufacturers to better automate and customise workflows, tailoring operations to the specific requirements and reducing time-consuming manual operations.
Polygonica is also a standard for automatic mesh-healing within the additive manufacturing industry with reference integrations including 3D Systems 3D Xpert and 3D Sprint, 3D Systems Cimatron/E, Ansys Discovery Live and Spaceclaim, Desktop Metal Fabricate, Live Parts and Fab Flow, Renishaw Adept, Renishaw Dental Manufacturing System and Stratasys Grab CAD Print.
