CGM Core Modeler Enhances Feature Recognition

The 2017 1.1 release of Spatial’s CGM™ Core Modeler improves the robustness of its feature recognition capabilities by extending the range of recognizable structures. Feature recognition rapidly identifies manufacturable structures in a model (such as holes, pads, logos, etc.), enabling users to group and perform subsequent operations on these constructs. This capability enables improvements to many workflows, such as reducing complexity for downstream simulation and analysis.

Geometry for Bevel Cuts using Water Jet & Laser Cutters

Introduction

As water jet and laser cutters become more sophisticated, the geometries that they are able to cut are also increasing in complexity.  In recent years, the ability to angle cutting heads has meant that instead of being restricted to vertical cuts, bevel cuts now become possible.

How to Train Eight People Without a Trainer

John's recent post on documentation and behavior driven development reminded me of an interesting experience I had last fall in developing training documentation.  Our annual 3D Insiders' Summit (early bird registration is now open, by the way. We hope to see you there!) always gives the sales team a rare opportunity to come together from around the world in one geographic location with a large chunk of the development team.

Managing the 16,777,217th Color

Here’s a quick poll:  How many of you have figured out by now that 16,777,217 = 2^24+1, and that the "24" refers to the 3 RGB bytes in RGBA32?

An alternate title I considered for this post was "NoColor is a color", which would have been an inside joke for people who go to science fiction conventions.  Considering the audience, I decided to stick with the computer science reference :)

Multi-processing in ACIS and CGM

I have spent many years of my career here at Spatial developing Thread-Safe ACIS and now I’ve been given the opportunity to additionally work on the multi-processing infrastructure in CGM. The two modelers use very different multiprocessing technologies, and it has been interesting comparing and contrasting them.
