Wings 3D is an advanced subdivision modeler that is both powerful and easy to use. Originally inspired by Nendo and Mirai from Izware, Wings 3D has been developed since 2001, when Björn Gustavsson (bjorng) and Dan Gudmundsson (dgud) first started the project. Richard Jones (optigon) maintained Wings and coded many new features between 2006 and 2011. Wings 3D is currently maintained by Dan and Richard with the help of the great community.

2011: a massive year for personal fabrication software The Best of the Blog 2011: Software 2011 was a year of big developments in mobile apps, web apps and cloud computing. Again in no particular order, here are some of the highlights of 2011 in software… 1. Autodesk 123D 123D is notable here because of software giant Autodesk’s recognition of the maker community.
Software This software is a design software that allows users to interact with origami forms while altering the crease pattern of the model. The software can keep: Developability (foldable from a piece of paper) Flat-foldability (foldable into a flat shape) Planarity of facets (paper do not twist in 3D form) Point coordinate coincidence Paper size Binary for win32FreeformOrigami025.zip (ver 0.2.5) For questions and discussions, please use this place http://www.curvedfolding.com/group/freeformorigami. History 2014/1/23 ver 0.2.5 Alpha Added global developability and flat-foldability for a mesh with hole (it may be still buggy). Fixed bugs in the crease pattern editing. 2013/11/20 ver 0.2.4 Alpha fixed bugs in the Add Ref Pts. Added convex boundary constraint Added Fold/Unfold Menu Added Tool->EqLen and Tool->EqAngle to add equal foldangle or lengths constraints to an edgegroup.
There have been some fairly heated posts and discussions in the blogs recently on the subject of some patents relating to architectural geometry held by Evolute, Helmut Pottmann and RFR, about the commercialisation of academic research, and particularly how all this relates to what I do in Kangaroo, and what people can legally use Kangaroo for. Firstly, rather than attempting to paraphrase or summarise, I will link to the posts in question so you can read them (and particularly the comments people made in reply) yourself: Patenting Geometry on Daniel Davis’ Digital Morphogenesis blog and Evolute’s response Why is Evolute Patenting Geometry ? I welcome this debate, and think it is of great interest and importance to everyone involved in the future of computational geometry.
