Helpful Qt Tools for 3D Software Development Kits


Helpful Qt Tools for 3D Software Development Kits


When software developers opt for tools that are cross platform, they often turn to Qt. Qt is arguably the most popular toolkit for making applications that can run on Windows, Mac or Linux with little additional effort. Spatial’s 3D software development kits can be paired with Qt to produce enterprise quality applications that are platform agnostic.

Create an Ellipsoid in 3D ACIS

How To Create an Ellipsoid using 3D ACIS

The 3D analytics supported directly in 3D ACIS include: sphere, block, pyramid, cone, and torus. These shapes can be changed to more generalized shapes using simple tricks that may not be known by everyone. For instance, to create a well behaved ellipsoid, convert a sphere to a spline and perform non-uniform scaling on it, as shown by the following Scheme script:

(define ellipsoid (lambda (r1 r2 r3)

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.
