TodayThe Internet of Things: New Challenges, New Opportunities
In the last column, we talked about Big Data and the challenges that it might present the designer and engineer in the near future (if not already). As part of that, we touched on how much of this might be driven by the Internet of Things. And the fine folks at PTC have asked me [… [more...
TodayRevit Tutorial - The Quad Corner Mullion
I was working with a friend of mine and he asked about the cleanest way to do a corner mullion. When I showed him the following technique he was ecstatic! I then checked the blog to see if I ever did a tutorial on it... to my surprise, I didn't! This may be a simple little tutorial but I know some of you will be as exited about it as my buddy was!

YesterdayArbitrary law-based curve and surface modeling. Part 2
(Continuation of part1 ) Same approach works for surfaces. In this case GeomConvert_ApproxSurface and Adaptor3d_Surface classes should be used in exact same manner. Below are a few examples of creating law surfaces. The first case is an example of creating a variable offset surface, where a surface is defined as follows: S(u,v) = B(u,v) + Offset(u,v) * N (u,v), where B(u,v) is a basis surface, N (u,v) is a unit normal to the basis surface, Offset (u,v [more...
YesterdayArbitrary law-based curve and surface modeling
A recent case with enhancing CAD Exchanger ACIS importer to broaden support of ACIS primitives inspired me to write this post. Like other modeling kernels, Open CASCADE comes with a finite set of supported types of curves and surfaces. For instance, for curves this includes lines and conic curves (circles, ellipses, parabolas and hyperbolas), B-Splines, Bezier curves, offset curves plus explicitly trimmed curves. OCC supports parametrics definition where [more...
Aug 28, 15The Secrets of Protein
Written by Catherine Bolgar If genes are our bodies architectural plans, then proteins are the internal devices that make decisions, send signals and ensure that our metabolism operates properly. The study of proteins in our cells and tissue is known as proteomics, a term coined in 1994 by Marc Wilkins, now professor of systems biology [… [more...
