WebGL modelling tool for 3D printing

• Tags:

Benjamin Nortier from 1011ltd.com is now in possession of a MakerBot Thing-O-Matic 3D Printer. After surveying the 3D modelling software, disappointment settled in, and Benjamin has decided to build a WebGL 3D modelling tool. The tool must be accessible--Open Source, Powerful--using boundary representation (BRep), and Modern--internet-ready with a solid RESTful API. Complete with a sneak peak, and proof of concept, this project is worth following. Read More

CTK Workbench 1.1 offering Linux support released

• Tags:

The CTK Workbench is a powerful rapid prototyping environment for OpenCL kernels. New kernels can be created by entering the OpenCL source code and defining inputs and outputs. These kernels can easily be connected to data sources and data viewers. Images, video streams, binary data and audio streams are supported. Sharing textures between OpenGL and OpenCL makes it possible to instantly display the results of OpenCL kernels operations. All results are visible in real time. Both Windows and Linux is supported.
