Project Description

How do we represent more complex shapes during engineering design and analysis? 3D printing, (additive manufacturing) and incorporation of image scan data (from manufacturing and in service) both result in shapes that are not easily captured by arcs and straight lines. How do we interact with geometry when dealing with this data as part of normal engineering workflows?

In this project ideas from photo editing tools and computer animation will be adapted to work with commercial CAD software to add new geometry layers that can represent both variations stemming from manufacture and those arising from wear in service. This will permit the full range of engineering analysis methods to be applied to real part shapes. Combined with the latest GPU hardware, Deep Learning, Data Mining and Artificial Intelligence methods to allow hint based automatic geometry creation, the project will provide insights into the next generation of engineering design software.
