Headline improvements in Polygonica 3.0 include:

  • Surface fitting enhancements:
    • Significantly improved resilience to noisy scan data.
    • Automatic determination of best-fit tolerance.
  • Remeshing enhancements:
    • Curvature-sensitive with edge lengths defined by surface curvature.
    • Zone-based with edge-lengths defined by user-specified zones.
  • Shrink-wrapping enhancements:
    • Error controlled refinement tunnel capping and extraction.
    • Simple and reliable defaults.
    • Denoising and edge enhancement for scan data.
  • 3D Curve enhancements including offset curves along a surface.
  • Fast clipping of 2D line segments to polygons.
  • 2D medial axis computation.
  • Foldover detection and removal.
  • Variable surface offsetting.
  • Create mesh from terrain contours.
  • Reconstruct solid mesh from slices.
  • Create surface mesh from curves.
  • Principal axes computation.
  • Curvature tensor computation.
  • Surface region selection using 2D profiles.
  • Mesh comparison of intersecting regions.

“MachineWorks has specialised in developing and advancing polygon mesh modelling technology since 1994,” says Dr Fenqiang Lin, one of the original core developers and now managing director at MachineWorks Ltd. “As a result of another year of hard work and innovation the Polygonica 3.0 release sets a new milestone in our mission to make Polygonica the very best polygon mesh modeller you can buy.”
