Print version Email story Tweet story
Hardware 3Dlabs has been announced as the Workstation Graphics Leader in a recent NT/Windows 2001 Workstation Market Study.
"Professional workstation users are increasingly demanding graphics products that are specifically engineered for professional graphics applications, rather than games chips pressed into service as makeshift workstation solutions," said Osman Kent, president and CEO of 3Dlabs. "3Dlabs is at the forefront of this trend, as indicated by this most-recent market share data. We believe that our continued focus on professional requirements will result in further growth in market share for 3Dlabs graphics accelerators going forward."

News Fluent has released an updated version of their popular unstructured meshing tool.
TGrid 3.4 has the ability to automatically refine surface meshes that are in close proximity; this solves one of the most common problems of unstructured meshing in complicated geometries. New commands in TGrid 3.4 aid in defining resolution, giving the engineer more control than ever over the quality of surface meshes.
The press release also mentions that prism layers can now be grown along non-planar boundaries. In addition, a unique mesh intersection command has been added which allows two surface meshes to be grafted together.

TGrid 3.4 is available now from Fluent Inc.

Geometry Aquisition: 3D Cloud of Points Meshing
Posted Fri May 11, 2001 @04:00PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Technodigit has developed a software library which automates the geometry aquisition process for legacy parts.

Using their 3DReshaper software, a cloud of points (eg. from a laser sensor) is optimally meshed to a user specified tolerance. The mesh can then be exported in a number of formats for use in geometry definition for computational analysis.

A tool like this could reduce the time required to analyze an "as built" part, as well as, increase the accuracy of such a simulation.
