Dear Reader, In accordance with my timeline, I have explored the capabilities of FreeCAD’s FEM Module along with other auxiliary modules in order to find a reliable software program that enables easy application and analysis of stress on a 3D object. I explored the basic functionality on a trivial yet essential structure as shown in […]
Dear Reader, The sphere packing software currently generates 3D internal structural meshes for hollow 3D objects. However, our current usage of sphere packing does not provide a major improvement over simple manual generation of uniform truss structures. The true advantage to using sphere packing is actually the ability to selectively manipulate local regions of the […]
This past week I have worked on installation ROS (Robot Operating System) on our desktop in the Ars Geometrica Lab in ISAT. With the ROS installation complete and usable, I began focusing on getting the OpenNI_launch and OpenNI_camera nodes working together to produce visuals from the Asus Xtion Pro Live.
