The software just provides a framework which is highly extensible to fulfill specific purpose. Download WebCAD1.0 now. LearnOSM. TileMill is a rugged application for designing detailed, beautiful maps. It is not meant for editing data or conducting analysis, but rather for cartography. With TileMill you use: data (this could be your OpenStreetMap database, or shapefiles)icons (you can use existing icons or design your own) TileMill provides a platform in which you can style your data in an elegant way and apply your own icons. You can then export your map as an image or in the MBTiles format, which can be hosted on MapBox and placed on your website as an interactive map. In this chapter we will go through: Tinkercad - Mind to design in minutes. Experimental WebGL renderer – Towards CAD in a browser. – January 28, 2011Posted in: News Work is currently in progress in order to add WebGL support for pythonOCC.

Experimental WebGL renderer – Towards CAD in a browser

Want to know more about WebGL: check the Khronos WebGL page at In a few words, WebGL is en emerging technology enabling real time 3D in a web browser. Specs are still in a draft state, and latest releases of web browsers do not support it by defult yet. However, major browsers dev teams hardly work to support WebGL (and HTML5 in general): experimental WebGL support is already available on Chrome 8, Firefox4 beta, Webkit etc.

Primarily identified as a way to enable online gaming (including on mobile devices), this innovation is a major opportunity for CAD (at least, we believe it is!). Furthermore, we do believe in the latest technologies to enable what we call “CAD in a browser”: we mean a complete online CAD/CAM toolsuite running in Firefox, Chrome or Safari. An experimental WebGL renderer for pythonOCC was developed to test these features. Autodesk - AutoCAD WS. Which Web browsers can run 3D CAD? The promise of "run anywhere"-CAD has always been a hollow claim, no matter how often a marketing department repeats it.

Which Web browsers can run 3D CAD?

Running something as tough as CAD requires fast hardware and the most up-to-date Web browsers -- and a sufficiently fast Internet connection and the right operating system and the correct graphics support... HTML5 and WebGL are the standards by which today's CAD-in-a-browser operates, and here is an overview of which browsers work (credit To3D) on desktop and laptop computers.

Notice the limiations I highlighted in italics: WebGL is a binding of OpenGL ES 2.0 for Javascript. It lets webpages do fast 3D graphics in the browser. Mozilla FirefoxWebGL has been enabled on all platforms that have a capable graphics card with updated drivers since version 4.0. Google ChromeWebGL has been enabled on all platforms that have a capable graphics card with updated drivers since version 9. OperaWebGL has been implemented in Opera 11 and 12 alpha (pre-release) snapshots. WebGL - OpenGL ES 2.0 for the Web. The Khronos Group - Connecting Software to Silicon The Khronos Group is a not for profit industry consortium creating open standards for the authoring and acceleration of parallel computing, graphics, dynamic media, computer vision and sensor processing on a wide variety of platforms and devices. All Khronos members are able to contribute to the development of Khronos API specifications, are empowered to vote at various stages before public deployment, and are able to accelerate the delivery of their cutting-edge 3D platforms and applications through early access to specification drafts and conformance tests.

OpenGL - The Industry Standard for High Performance Graphics OpenGL® is the most widely adopted 2D and 3D graphics API in the industry, bringing thousands of applications to a wide variety of computer platforms. It is window-system and operating-system independent as well as network-transparent. OpenCL - The open standard for parallel programming of heterogeneous systems. 3D, CAO, Calcul et PLM en Ligne. Dans cette page je vous propose un scénario imaginaire de ce que pourrait devenir le Bureau d’Etudes de demain s’il s’intégrait dans l’environnement d’un Cloud Computing.

3D, CAO, Calcul et PLM en Ligne

J’ai tenté de prendre en compte l’ensemble de la chaine de valeurs que peut apporter la conception en ligne. C’est pourquoi ce scénario dépasse largement les actions et les attentes des concepteurs des Bureaux d’Etudes. Il intègre tous les intervenants possibles en relation avec la réalisation d’une conception, d’un plan technique. En fait l’impacte d’une CAO qui serait totalement immergée dans un Cloud verrait le Bureau d’Etude seulement comme le point de départ de la production de l’information technique. Elle se propagerait dans toutes les ramifications de l’entreprise et elle impacterait tous les services et départements. Ce scénario, qui n’engage que mon perception d’un avenir proche, ne se satisfera pas d’une ou deux versions.

J’espère aussi que vous m’apporterez votre contribution en donnant vos points de vue. WebGL - OpenGL ES 2.0 for the Web. JTS Topology Suite. Features See the linked, annotated feature list.

JTS Topology Suite

GEOS. GEOS (Geometry Engine - Open Source) is a C++ port of the Java Topology Suite (JTS). As such, it aims to contain the complete functionality of JTS in C++. This includes all the OpenGIS Simple Features for SQL spatial predicate functions and spatial operators, as well as specific JTS enhanced topology functions. GEOS is available under the terms of GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL), and is a project of OSGeo. Capabilities Include[edit] ¶ Geometries: Point, LineString, Polygon, MultiPoint, MultiLineString, MultiPolygon, GeometryCollection Predicates: Intersects, Touches, Disjoint, Crosses, Within, Contains, Overlaps, Equals, Covers Operations: Union, Distance, Intersection, Symmetric Difference, Convex Hull, Envelope, Buffer, Simplify, Polygon Assembly, Valid, Area, Length, Prepared geometries (pre-spatially indexed) STR spatial index OGC Well Known Text (WKT) and Well Known Binary (WKB) encoders and decoders.
