MachineWorks launches Polygonica at CAD’11

Sheffield-based MachineWorks Ltd, leading provider of CNC simulation and verification component software is launching Polygonica, a polygonal solid modeling toolkit, at CAD’11 in Taipei this June 27-30.

Polygonica is a software toolkit for carrying out a wide range of geometrical operations on 3D polygonal solid geometry and 2D profile geometry.

The toolkit is new but the code has been at the core of MachineWorks software toolkit for machining simulation and has been continuously improved over 16 years.

The algorithms inside Polygonica have had heavy industrial use and have been extensively tried and tested. They are required to be robust and to offer outstanding performance. Polygonica’s extremely complex algorithms have been wrapped to make them easy to use.

Typical uses of Polygonica are within industries such as CAD/CAM/CAE, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, 3D movies and gaming, geo-exploring, urban modeling and other 3D digital applications.

Polygonica’s capabilities include:

  • Boolean operations
  • Automatic solid healing
  • Self-intersection fixing
  • Geometry simplification
  • Slicing and other geometric operations


MachineWorks wants to share its wide experience of providing APIs to solve complex polygonal solid modeling problems in a diverse number of industries facing common challenges when handling defective models and vast numbers of polygons.

MachineWorks Software sets the standard for CNC simulation and verification component software in the industry. More than 60% of CAM developers in the world have integrated MachineWorks technology into their applications and benefited from MachineWorks’ cutting-edge functionality over the last 16 years. MachineWorks’ toolkit has been integrated by software and hardware OEMs looking for a solution in simulation of material removal and clash and gouge detection of any type of CNC machining. MachineWorks’ core technology combines speed, accuracy and stability. It is ideally suited for anti-crash systems, complex machining and full machine simulation.
