Dr. Ryan Schmidt will be talking at the SIAM Conference on Geometric and Physical Modeling on October 15 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Dr. Schmidt will be talking about Integrating Mesh-Based Modelling Techniques with Parametric CAD:
The growing use of additive manufacturing lifts many constraints on form imposed by CNC machining and injection molding, and has lead to a renewed interest in applying triangle meshes, voxels, and implicit surfaces in real-world CAD systems. However, such systems should inter-operate with legacy B-Rep CAD solid modeling tools. I will discuss our ongoing attempt to combine these two domains, relying on a combination of dynamic triangle meshes and variational mesh processing.
