What to do when your 3D Modeling Boolean Operations Fail?

Boolean operations on individual bodies are common functions in 3D modeling. While simple in concept, reality can be quite different — Boolean operations can fail for a variety of reasons, often the result of earlier Boolean operations. The most common reasons boil down to unclear design intent.

An incremental Boolean workflow is available to Spatial customers to increase the success rate of Boolean operations by performing localized optimization routines when a standard Boolean operation fails.

Insider’s off to a Good Start on Day One

Today was day one of Spatial Corp.’s 3D Insiders’ Summit 2016, an educational event that focuses on technical topics that helps our customers innovate outside of the box.  Attendees are here to discover what is new at Spatial, learn about the latest features, and gain insight about our future product plans as well to network with other industry professionals.

So what did you miss if you were not able to attend?

Healing and Preserving 3D Model Intent

Part and parcel with model-based engineering is model translation. Because the model is now the specification, accurate translation from one system to another becomes essential. But even if a model is accurately read, the intent of the model has to also be properly interpreted. Key to proper model interpretation is healing — the process of modifying model data so that it conforms to the rules of the target system, while adhering to the intent of the source.

Spatial Enables Industry Innovation with Release 2017 1.0

In case you missed the news this week, we announced the availability of Release 2017 1.0 for Spatial software development toolkits (or SDKs). This release focuses on improvements and new features in two areas: innovation and industrialization.

Innovation

The release includes a number new features across our product line to help you in attacking your end market.

3D Modeling at Augmented World Expo 2016

Augmented World Expo 2016

Part of the sales and marketing team’s mission here at Spatial is to attend trade shows worldwide, not only to meet other industry professionals, but also to keep up on the latest trends within the various industries we serve. One of the more unusual shows we attend each year is the Augmented World Expo (AWE), a conference and expo on augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and wearable technology.

When 3D Software Development Toolkits Make Sense

Make or buy is an age old question for anyone building products, whether hardware or software. For example, for a manufacturer, does it make sense to buy a pre-built assembly or design and build their own? The same question arises for software developers: take advantage of existing SDKs to solve a particular problem or write custom code. And unfortunately, the answer always is “it depends.”

Whither 3D Modeling

The term disruptive technology is often overused (and typically just marketing hype), but there are some technologies that evolve over time, having an ever increasing impact on our lives. 3D Modeling is one such technology, often unseen by the public, but changing the way products and systems are designed. Some industries such as aviation could not dream of returning to a world of 2D drawings. But other industries have been slower to adopt the technology, or have limited its rollout.

Innovative 3D Uses for AEC/BIM and supporting Advanced Workflows for Additive Manufacturing — Take-Aways from COE 2016

The COE 2016 Annual PLM Experience and TechniFair was held last week in San Antonio. This was my first year attending the event for users of Dassault Systèmes software solutions.  As it turns out there was a lot I did not really understand about this show that I had heard so much about over the years.  In years past when I heard COE referenced, I erroneously thought it was a Dassault Systèmes event. But COE is a well-organized user group, bringing industry professionals together.

3D Modeling: Enabling the Revolution in Biomechatronics

The marrying of electronics, mechanics and bionics, or biomechatronics, can conjure up images of Iron Man, flying around, wielding superhuman strength. But behind the science fiction is science fact — scientists and engineers are developing systems to enable amputees and paraplegics to walk again. And that is only the beginning.
