K-3D. Space Designer 3D. Blender. OpenNURBS. The openNURBS Initiative provides CAD, CAM, CAE, and computer graphics software developers the tools to accurately transfer 3-D geometry between applications.


The tools provided by openNURBS include: C++ source code libraries to read and write the 3DM file format. The current Microsoft, Apple and Gnu compilers for Windows, Windows x64, Mac, and Linux are supported.. .NET source code to read and write the 3DM file format. Quality assurance and revision control. Technical support. Unlike other open development initiatives, alliances, or consortia: Commercial use is encouraged. Note: openNURBS is an open source toolkit for only reading and writing 3DM files. Audience The openNURBS SDKs are intended for use by skilled C++ or .NET programmers. Download. Slingshot! Preview. Slingshot!

Is my new personal project. It is a work-in-progress suite of tools aimed at enabling the coordination of design information among different software environments. The project is open ended in its trajectory and may take some radical turns in the course of its development. Karamba. Karamba 1.0.5 is now available for download and includes the following new features and bug-fixes.


Karamba 1.0.5 contains these new features: A simplified installation procedure. Iso- and stream-lines with user supplied values and vectors at mesh-vertices (unlimited mesh-size also in the FREE-version of Karamba). Benchmark examples with known results from literature for the evaluation of calculation […] This intensive 4 day design/fabricate/build workshop explored digital form-finding techniques to produce a series of scaled architectural prototypes for freestanding pavilion structures.

List of CAx companies

Software using computer-aided technologies (CAx) has been produced since the 1970s through to the present for a variety of computer platforms. This software may include applications for Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-aided engineering (CAE), Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and Product Data Management (PDM). The list is far from complete or representative as the CAD business landscape is very dynamic: almost every month new companies appear, old companies go out of business, companies split and merge. Sometimes some names disappear and reappear again. Category:Free computer-aided design software. Free-cad.

It presents a programming model based on a 3D scene database that dramatically simplifies graphics programming. It includes a rich set of objects such as cubes, polygons, text, materials, cameras, lights, trackballs, handle boxes, 3D viewers, and editors that speed up your programming time and extend your 3D programming capabilities. 3D Graphics Development Tools.

AutoCAD WS for Android

AutoCAD WS uses cloud computing technology to enable Autodesk software users to view, edit and share their designs through web browsers and mobile devices. AutoCAD WS for Android enables an expanded group of users to enjoy the benefits of effortless collaboration with architects, designers and engineers from anywhere in the world and experience the freedom of taking designs with them-wherever they go. "Architects, engineers and designers have clearly communicated that they want access to their AutoCAD projects on their Android devices and we are more than happy to meet their needs. The impressive and consistent growth of the Android ecosystem serves as an excellent platform for Autodesk to further expand its accessibility through AutoCAD WS," said Tal Weiss, AutoCAD WS software development manager, Autodesk.

SketchChair is a free, open-source software tool that allows anyone to easily design and build their own digitally fabricated furniture.

SketchChair: Furniture Designed by You by Diatom

The goal for this project is not just to complete the software and release the source code, but also to build an online community of people creating, sharing and editing designs. Digital manufacturing processes open up a world of opportunity for producing unique individualised objects, but we think there is a lack of accessible digital tools that allow anybody to use these processes to design and make their own functional, personalised products. This furniture is designed or customized using a simple 2d drawing interface.

The program automatically generates a structure for your chair and lets you simulate sitting on it with a virtual model of yourself. As you interact with the tool, it generates the cutting pattern for your design, which can then be sent to a digital fabrication machine. SPAWeb3D.

The already powerful range of modeling tools in trueSpace is expanded with this release, making it easy for you to create your 3D objects and scenes. by Griff Wason.

The improvements include the ability to sweep edges as well as faces; the option to hide geometry while point editing to make it easier to work on areas of your model; a heal vertices tool to tidy up geometry after booleans or imports; tools to optimise triangulation or quadrifying polygons to ensure a workable mesh; new point edit selection tools to grow, shrink, invert, and convert a selection; and more. This means it is quicker and easier to work with your model in any way you need, to get precisely the result you are after with the minimum of fuss. You can model anything from the futuristic (by Marcel Delord) to the historical (by Monte Wolford) I love sketch. Seok-Hyung Bae, Ravin Balakrishnan, and Karan Singh are about to present “ILoveSketch: As-natural-as-possible sketching system for creating 3D curve models,” ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2008 (Monterey, CA, USA, October 19-22, 2008) ILOVESKETCH is a 3D curve sketching system that captures some of the affordances of pen and paper for professional designers, allowing them to iterate directly on concept 3D curve models.

The system coherently integrates existing techniques of sketch-based interaction with a number of novel and enhanced features. Novel contributions of the system include automatic view rotation to improve curve sketchability, an axis widget for sketch surface selection, and implicitly inferred changes between sketching techniques. 3DVIA TV.

Spatial and Dassault Put 3D CAD on the Cloud. What it All Means. - SolidSmack

Anyone could have guessed that though. SolidWorks showed-off the cross-platform possibilities and Autodesk put AutoCAD on the cloud. But, working with 3D geometry via the web hasn’t been seen… till this past week. Deelip Menezes broke the news Tuesday morning from the Spatial European Forum. (Read Really Big News from Dassault and Spatial) It’s now possible for anyone to license the technology to put 3D design applications on the web.

The news has massive implications for the CAx and design Industries. Spatial Development Labs. Store > modo.

Projectfinder. The world´s first "Membrane Project Finder" is made to encourage designers in the creation of feasable and beautiful membrane architecture. It is clear that experts reports or a collection of drawings, images or typologies can only provide inspirational knowledge and that this knowledge can not be simply transferred from one project to the other. Each tensile membrane project is a result of a process - and decisions made by a team. We would like to point out that only a team of experts can create such structures and we like to support you in any question!
