The Polygonica technology is founded on 20 years of development and provides a full set of fast, robust and powerful 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.
Polygonica's mesh/STL CAD capabilities augment the CimatronE hybrid modeling system, by adding powerful 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.
Commenting on the agreement, Danny Haran, CEO of Cimatron said: "MachineWorks is a long-time partner 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."
"We are pleased to provide yet another leading technology to Cimatron and its customers", said David Manley, Managing Director of MachineWorks. "Polygonica is used in the CAD industry, but is also aimed at 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing users and bureaus. It provides fast, built-in and fully automatic solid model healing to ensure that all models are ready for printing. We are excited about its future potential and look forward to continue working closely with Cimatron", concluded Dr Manley.
