A view of SolidWorks World 2015. Additive Manufacturing - Bridging the Gap Between Precise Models and Non-Precise Data

We are just starting the 3rd day of 2015 SolidWorks World. The first two days have been very well attended and with a great deal of excitement.

There has been a lot of curiosity about Spatial and our role in the Dassault Systemes ecosystem. For many, it is the first time that they have heard of us. After some explanation, many are beginning to connect the dots on how we can add value in to their company. The primary interest has been around how we can help additive manufacturing bridge the gap between precise models and non-precise data. 

The Powerful Combo of Water and 3D

For those of you not familiar with waterjet machining, this is an industrial tool that is capable of cutting a variety of materials using an extremely high-pressure jet of water.  A mixture of water with an abrasive substance is sometimes used as well.  This method is used primarily when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods.  Waterjets have the widest range of application of any machine tool, while maintaining high precision. There are virtually no limits to what waterjets can cut.

Does Lisp Influence Your C++?

The idea for this post started on Aug 11, 2011, when I read Gregg’s post about choosing a scripting language for 3DScript, the CGM interactive test bed.  That article had a lot of good ideas, but I feel like it kind of missed the point regarding Lisp/Scheme/Functional Programming.  He used a do loop to try to make the point that the syntax is rather goofy.   The reason scheme came up at all is that it is used as a scripting language for acis3dt.exe o

Highlights of the R24 Release of 3D InterOp

The R24 release of 3D InterOp is now available for download. Although they are available online, not everyone pours over the 3D InterOp Release Notes for R24 like we might hope.  What follows is a shorter summary of what’s new in 3D InterOp Suite R24. The description of what’s new falls into three areas; new products, functional enhancements, and platform changes.
