G-code Generation and Simulation
Computational Geometry Engine
The computational geometry engine requires these features :
* import standard 2D object file, e.g. SVG and DXF
* import standard 3D object file, e.g. STL
* 2D path erosion and dilation, e.g. to compute cutter radius compensation
* 2D/3D Minkowski sum along a path
* 3D extrusion
* 3D Boolean operation : object - tool path
List of the Main Open Source Computational Geometry Algorithms Libraries
The Computational Geometry Algorithms Library
`CGAL <>`_ is a software project that provides easy access to efficient and
reliable geometric algorithms in the form of a C++ library. CGAL is used in various areas needing
geometric computation, such as geographic information systems, computer aided design, molecular
biology, medical imaging, computer graphics, and robotics.
CGAL is used in:
* many academic projects
* `OpenSCAD <>`_
Git repository and Python binding:
STL (STereoLithography) format support:
* include/CGAL/IO/Polyhedron_builder_from_STL.h
* demo/Polyhedron/Plugins/IO/STL_io_plugin.cpp
* include/CGAL/IO/STL_reader.h
* include/CGAL/IO/STL_writer.h
* `Open CASCADE Community Edition <>`_
* — python wrapper
Open CASCADE is used in:
* `Salome <>`_
* `FreeCAD <>`_
.. `code_aster <>`_
G-code Visualisation
The open source `Qt <>`_ framework provide a multi-platform User Interface framework with 3D support.
* `Qt 3D <>`_
Qt 3D provides functionality for near-realtime simulation systems with support for 2D and 3D rendering in both Qt C++ and Qt Quick applications.
* `QMesh Class <>`_
QMesh supports the following formats:
* Wavefront OBJ
* Stanford Triangle Format PLY
* STL (STereoLithography)
* Autodesk FBX if the SDK is installed
Markdown is supported
