The Polygonica technology provides a full set of polygon/mesh modeling operations, including solid STL healing, Boolean operations, offsetting and simplification. It also provides mesh body metrics, including 3D volume, bounding box and surface area.
According to the company, Polygonica’s mesh/STL CAD capabilities augment the CimatronE hybrid modeling system, by adding mesh-based features to the existing solid/surface/wireframe CAD modeling. Mesh-based modeling is often used in a variety of end-user applications, such as reverse engineering, and production of complex 3D shapes.
“MachineWorks is a long-time partner of Cimatron,” said Danny Haran, CEO of Cimatron. “Our recent agreement, enabling the integration of the Polygonica technology into CimatronE is yet another step in strengthening our partnership with MachineWorks in support of existing and future manufacturing technologies. We believe Polygonica’s state-of-the-art mesh-based modeling can help us bring significant added value to both CAD and NC users.”
