20140028675 | Reducing The Size Of A Model Using Visibility Factors - A computer-implemented method and system reduces size of a data structure of a computer-aided design (CAD) model. Given a CAD model formed of a plurality of modeling elements, the method and system provide one or more geometric entities defining modeling elements of the CAD model. The geometric entities have corresponding graphical entities configured to display the CAD model. For each modeling element, the method and system determine visibility of the modeling element and produce a reduced data structure by storing in the structure graphic data representing the graphical entities and geometric data of only certain ones of the geometric entities determined as a function of visibility of the corresponding modeling elements. | 01-30-2014 |

20130080121 | Automatic Component Insertion And Constraint Based On Previous-Use Data - Automatically adding constraints between entities in a subject computer-aided design (CAD) model of a real-world object includes storing information regarding CAD model entities and related constraints in a computer database in which the CAD model entities belong to one or more components of the subject CAD model or other CAD models. The computer database is accessed to determine previously used constraints for at least one entity of a given component being added to the CAD model, and constraints are automatically added between at least one entity of the given component and another entity in the subject CAD model based on the previously used constraints. | 03-28-2013 |

20120182297 | DIRECT RENDERING OF CAD MODELS ON THE GPU - A computer-implemented method and system for rendering a computer-aided design model includes constructing a boundary representation data structure of the model comprising topological data for a face, constructing a data structure representing a parameter space of the face, and decomposing the parameter space into cells, where each cell indicates the presence of the face in the cell. The cells are encoded in a texture construct that is transmitted to a graphics processing unit where further processing renders the face on a computer monitor. | 07-19-2012 |
