MachineWorks, a supplier of CNC Simulation and verification component software, has announced that it will release Polygonica version 1.4 later this summer.

The software will include several new features including a new remeshing API which provides a way to modify the shape and size of the polygons representing a solid, while maintaining the overall shape and topology of the solid, in other words, altering the geometry to improve the quality of the solid. The aim of remeshing is to make more regular faceting, a highly desirable quality for algorithms used in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) or Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

Point cloud processing functionality is now much more comprehensive and suitable for interactive applications. Many extensions have been made including point cloud set registration, filtering, smoothing, sampling, and normal calculation.

Clash detection algorithms have been optimised and extended to allow the severity of a clash to be measured. A negative clash tolerance can now be specified to discount insignificant clashes where solids only marginally intersect each other.

The Polygonica library now supports not only the Windows platform, but also MacOS and Linux.

Polygonica is a solid modelling software toolkit for processing polygon meshes. Built on MachineWorks' core engines, Polygonica's unique polygonal modelling technology takes advantage of 20 years of development providing automatic, fast and robust Boolean operations. Other algorithms in Polygonica allow solid healing, simplification, slicing, sectioning and spun profile calculation.
