Rendering Graphical Data from 3D InterOp with HOOPS Visualize

Recently I was asked by a customer how to render a 3D visualization model translated from a CAD file by Graphical 3D InterOp (see ref 1 below.)  The customer is using HOOPS so the quick answer was to use our bridge libraries which connect our products together and sure enough there is a 3D InterOp/HOOPs bridge for precisely this purpose.  However I thought that I would really like to know how the data gets passed between the different components, especially as I had a small test application I had used a while ago and I never got the dis

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.
