US2015051875A1
COMPUTER PROCESS FOR DETERMINING BEST-FITTING MATERIALS FOR CONSTRUCTING ARCHITECTURAL SURFACES
Publication/Patent Number: US2015051875A1 Publication Date: 2015-02-19 Application Number: 13/758,944 Filing Date: 2013-02-04 Inventor: Witt, Andrew   Assignee: GEHRY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.   IPC: G06F17/50 Abstract: A computer process for fitting construction materials to an architectural surface modeled in CAD divides the surface into domains, and defines sample points on each domain surface. Low accuracy then high accuracy iterations match a domain to a surface portion of a regular curved solid. The low accuracy match limits the type and orientation of the curved solid. The high accuracy match derives a central reference for the curved solid by defining vector pairs from among the sample points and calculating multiple resultants as cross products of vector pairs that share a common origin. Reference points are located wherever the distance between any two resultants is minimum, and the central reference, e.g. an axis, is derived from the reference points using regression analysis. The match to the domain may be iteratively improved by adjusting a parameter such as a radius until a desired accuracy is achieved. The result is compared to stored specifications to identify construction materials capable of forming the domain. Parallel processing may be employed to reduce time for solving fitting problems for large architectural projects having multiple surfaces with complex curvatures.

Computer process for determining best-fitting materials for constructing architectural surfaces
Publication/Patent Number: US9152743B2 Publication Date: 2015-10-06 Application Number: 13/758,944 Filing Date: 2013-02-04 Inventor: Witt, Andrew   Assignee: GEHRY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.   IPC: G06F17/50 Abstract: A computer process for fitting construction materials to an architectural surface modeled in CAD divides the surface into domains. Sample points are defined on each domain surface. A surface portion of a regular curved solid is matched to the sample points. The surface portion of the curved solid is defined in terms of a central reference and boundary conditions. The result is compared to stored specifications to identify construction materials capable of forming the domain. At least one construction material is identified that can form each domain.

METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR REPRESENTING 3D THUMBNAILS
Publication/Patent Number: US2014195963A1 Publication Date: 2014-07-10 Application Number: 13/717,620 Filing Date: 2012-12-17 Inventor: Cheung, Jim Chi-kwan   Shelden, Dennis   Assignee: GEHRY TECHNOLOGIES   IPC: G06F3/0482 Abstract: A method and related system are disclosed for generating a rotatable thumbnail representation of a 3D model of an object stored in a CAD file. Method steps include translating content of the CAD file into a neutral graphics format, converting the translated file content into a succession of views of the object, each successive view presenting a different perspective of the object as it rotates about a common axis, converting the successive views to a sequence of thumbnail-sized images, associating the sequence with a single thumbnail representation of the CAD file, and configuring the thumbnail representation to enable a user to preview the CAD file on a graphical user interface by displaying the thumbnail-sized images according to the sequence to simulate rotation of the object about the common axis. The resulting 3D thumbnail is universally viewable, for example, in a browser, without opening application software used to create the 3D model.

METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DETECTING INTERFERENCE IN DESIGN ENVIRONMENT
Publication/Patent Number: US2014180641A1 Publication Date: 2014-06-26 Application Number: 13/717,371 Filing Date: 2012-12-17 Inventor: Lee, Jaemin   Cheung, Jim Chi-kwan   Shelden, Dennis   Assignee: Gehry Technologies   IPC: G06F17/50 Abstract: The disclosure provides a solution for clash detection in three-dimensional design by allowing multiple members to work on a centrally-located version of the model. The disclosure also provides massively-parallel processing of the design file which enables rapid processing and version control. The model can be maintained at one or more remote servers with significantly higher processing capability. Implementing clash detection on the remote server allows the system to take advantage of parallel processing. Complex 3D models can be identified and divided across multiple computational units to significantly increase processing speed.
