DEVELOP3D LIVE 2019, the UK conference and exhibition celebrating design, engineering and manufacturing, is being held only 10 minutes’ walk from MachineWorks’ offices, at the University of Sheffield. Attendees staying overnight at Endcliffe Village will be able to wave at MachineWorks on the way to the show.


Polygonica, MachineWorks’ 3D-modelling toolkit for polygonal mesh and point cloud manipulation, will be on display with its latest developments for shrink-wrapping, handling of large point cloud data and automatic hole filling.

Polygonica offers a wide range of key functionality to Additive Manufacturing workflows such as automatic STL fixing and polygon mesh healing including fast removal of self-intersections, tolerance-based simplification, support generation and slicing, alongside 2D and 3D offsetting, Booleans, 3D sweeping, hollowing, lattice clipping and quality-based re-meshing.

Built on MachineWorks' core technology for material removal and machine simulation, Polygonica’s unique polygonal modelling technology takes advantage of years of development and successful implementation in the CNC industry.

Polygonica has a wide range of applications, particularly in additive manufacturing and 3D scanning where there is a requirement to solve complex polygon modelling problems when handling defective models with vast numbers of polygons. However it also applies to industries such as CFD/FEA meshing, CAD/CAM/CAE, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, 3D movies and gaming, geo-exploring, urban modelling and other 3D digital applications.

DEVELOP3D LIVE 2019 will take place on 17th April at the University of Sheffield, INOX and Octagon buildings on Durham Road, Sheffield S10 2TG and Polygonica will be exhibiting on stand 47 at the Octagon.
