POLYGONICA is the Polygonal Solid Modeling Toolkit from MachineWorks Ltd.
Polygonica carries out a wide range of geometric operations on STL models such as automatic solid healing, fixing self-intersections and other Boolean operations. Other algorithms in Polygonica allow remeshing, simplification, offsetting and point cloud manipulation.
Built on MachineWorks’ core technology for material removal and machine simulation, Polygonica unique polygonal modeling technology, takes its advantage from years of development and successful implementation in the CNC industry.
Polygonica has a wide range of applications, particularly in the fast-growing fields of additive manufacturing and 3D printing, where there is a requirement to solve complex polygon modeling problems when handling defective models with vast numbers of polygons. However it also applies to industries such as CFD/FEA meshing, CAD/CAM/CAE, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, 3D movies and gaming, geo-exploring, urban modeling and other 3D digital applications.
