SHEFFIELD, UK, September, 18, 2013 - Leading software providers MachineWorks Ltd and Tech Soft 3D are demonstrating a new combined software solution aimed at 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing users and bureaus. It will provide robust data conversion, solid healing and viewing to cloud-based applications without the need for any specialised 3D knowledge or expertise.
The solution combines best-of-breed polygonal modelling from MachineWorks - Polygonica - with cloud based visualisation and translation from Tech Soft 3D - HOOPS Communicator. The cloud solution is designed to allow users to upload files in a wide variety of common CAD formats. The models can be viewed, shared and inspected in real time, through zero-client web browsers as well as mobile devices. Formats supported include CATIA, Pro/E, NX, SolidWorks, STEP as well as many others.
Polygonica from MachineWorks provides fast, built-in and fully automatic solid model healing to ensure that all models are ready for printing. It also provides metrics such as build volume, bounding box and surface area for quoting algorithms. Polygonica can also hollow out parts prior to printing. The Polygonica technology is founded on 20 years of development and provides a full set of fast, robust and easy-to-use polygon modelling operations, including solid healing, boolean operations, offsetting and simplification. Polygonica is available as an SDK.
Polygonica Toolkit provides polygon modelling component software for industries such as CAD/CAM/CAE, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, 3D movies and gaming, geo-exploring, urban modelling and other 3D digital applications. Polygonica is developed by MachineWorks Ltd, the leading provide of CNC simulation and verification software. For more information on Polygonica visit
