upFront.eZine review for T-Splines 3 for Rhino Print E-mail

upFront.eZine reviews T-Splines 3 for Rhino.

There is a lot of interest in the merging of NURBS (used more by CAD software) and sub-division surfaces (used more by animation software). I interviewed IntegrityWare some weeks ago; Autodesk added sub-d surfaces to AutoCAD; and Pro/E is coming out with a Creo'ized version -- among others. Bringing sub-d surfaces to CAD makes for more flexible modeling.

T-Splines, however, is unique, as ceo Matt Sederberg told me last week, in its approach to sub-d modeling in that it has the ability to handle T-shaped intersections between faces (patented) with curvature continuity. In addition, T-Splines has the advantage of starting with curves (others tend to start from primitives, like boxes), and can match to an exact curve or surface or mesh -- hence the name, T and Splines.

Develop3d reviews tsElements for SolidWorks Print E-mail

Josh Mings recently reviewed tsElements for SolidWorks in Develop3D magazine. tsElements for SolidWorks saves you time by letting you import smooth surfaces that can be directly manipulated inside the SolidWorks feature tree without being recreated using SolidWorks surfacing.

Mr. Mings begins: "There’s a shift happening in the world of 3D solid modelling. A shift towards a more direct method of modelling, easier ways to change your model with less focus on what has to be done to make that change happen..."
