HOOPS SDKs accelerate the development of modern additive manufacturing software. Learn about new market trends and how to develop Additive Manufacturing software with SDKs from Tech Soft 3D and Polygonica.
HOOPS SDKs & Polygonica for Additive Manufacturing
Tech Soft 3D’s HOOPS Toolkits alongside MachineWorks' Polygonica have helped companies like Stratasys, 3D Systems, Desktop Metal, and more accelerate the development of advanced additive manufacturing software with tools supporting CAD data access, 3D visualization, automatic mesh healing, model simplification, and more.
Reliable CAD Data Access
Use HOOPS Exchange’s powerful toolset to easily build CAD data translation into any application. Enable your application with multi-CAD import and read over 30 native and standard CAD file formats such as SOLIDWORKS, Catia, Creo, Inventor, STEP, STL, and many more using HOOPS Exchange import libraries.
Advanced File Preparation & Visualization
Polygonica offers powerful functions for solving common 3D printing issues. Mesh, auto-heal, simplify, slice, hollow out, and generate lattice structures with Polygonica mesh processing toolkit. Add robust 3D visualization technology to your application and display print objects in web, desktop, and mobile environments using HOOPS Communicator (web) and HOOPS Visualize (desktop & mobile).
This demo showcases how Tech Soft and Machine Works SDKs can work together to create a powerful additive manufacturing application. Leveraging HOOPS Exchange, the demo reads in more than 30 CAD file formats, MachineWorks Polygonica SDK analyzes the mesh data for 3D Printing, and HOOPS Visualize displays the 3D data.
