CASTOR uses Polygonica’s geometry engine for high throughput analysis of large assemblies on the cloud alongside HOOPS Exchange for CAD data access
“We licensed Polygonica alongside HOOPS Exchange from Tech Soft 3D. Exchange gives us fast access to pretty much every major CAD assembly file format available along with important design information such as intelligent PMI and GD&T.
We use Polygonica as one of our main geometry crunching engines. The quality of Polygonica’s automatic STL healing seems pretty widely known in the AM community but we have to go a lot further, investigating many aspects of printability such as layout, lattice and support creation. As well as healing and analysis we use Polygonica’s decimation, hollowing, offsetting, Booleans and geometry creation routines such as extrusions and sweeps.
Our Enterprise product provides weight reduction analysis and also “likelihood of failure” checking based on Finite Element simulations. Polygonica’s mesh fixing is a key part of those workflows.”
