Creates 3D models from photographs
Regard3D is a free, multiplatform, open-source structure-from-motion application. It creates 3D models of objects, based on photographs from different angles.
Design your own pottery for 3D printing in full color
PotterDraw is a free 3D software application for designing and visualizing pottery. It’s useful for creating cylindrical shapes such as pots, flasks, vases, bowls, plates, cups, glasses, goblets, or anything similar. The outer wall of the pot is drawn using a spline, which consists of one or more curved or linear segments. The inner wall is generated automatically. PotterDraw can export files suitable for 3D printing. It can also map synthesized or user-specified textures onto the pot. Mesh and texture properties can be modulated by oscillators for more complex effects, and the modulations can be animated to create videos.
Calculates Volume, Surface Area & Centroid of a Closed Triangular Mesh
The ObjectVolume program calculates the volume, surface area and centroid of a closed triangular mesh represented in an object file (.obj). The process goes through the list of triangles that make up the surface and, for each triangle, forms a tetrahedron with an external point. The program uses the origin (0,0,0). The volume of the tetrahedron is then calculated. Tetrahedrons with back facing triangles are added and those with forward facing triangles are subtracted yielding the object volume. A detailed description of the process is presented in the ObjectVolumeTutorial.doc document as well as program logic and results. A key component in the program is a subroutine that calculates the volume of a tetrahedron. Four sets of equations were tested and to my surprise all four produced similar results in accuracy and timing.
Autorun enabler for VBA macro in Inventor 2014 projects
This plugin enables some unsupported functionalities for Autodesk Inventor 2014. Autodesk doesn't support Autorun macro for VBA projects anymore, but with this plugin it is still possible to use the commands "AutoOpen", "AutoEdit", "AutoSave", "AutoClose" and "AutoNew" subroutines stored within "ThisDocument" module.
