FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Georgia Institute of Technology and IronCAD Sign Research Deal
ATLANTA, GA. January 24, 2007 – IronCAD today announced it signed an agreement with the Georgia Institute of Technology that will sponsor research into visibility-based visualization of highly complex CAD models. Research will be facilitated through grant monies provided by IronCAD.
Directing the study is Professor Jarek Rossignac, a 25-year veteran of solid modeling and interactive graphic development. Rossignac was the founder and chair of the Solid Modeling Association and of the ACM Solid Modeling Symposia. Before joining Georgia Tech, he directed Research and product development at IBM in the visualization of highly complex CAD models. Rossignac’s recent Georgia Tech research involved creating a 3D design systems for doctors to plan surgery.
“Our plan is to look into how information from a 3D model can be extracted to help form 2D representations,” says Rossignac, “We want to help improve the speed of calculation as well as the quality of the data extracted,” he continued.
Georgia Tech and IronCAD collaborate frequently through innovative 3D teaching and technology programs. “We’re happy to help support Georgia Tech’s group of talented researchers in the areas of visualization and geometric modeling. Georgia Tech’s proximity to our main office affords IronCAD a close relationship with staff and it’s our hope their findings can bring great advancement to 3D CAD systems,” says Tao-Yang Han, president of IronCAD, LLC.
Apart from monetary contributions, IronCAD has also donated multiple licenses of IronCAD and TeamVault, IronCAD’s document management software, so Georgia Tech students can experience a IronCAD’s unique way of design that is very different from other CAD systems.
