LEDAS announces regular update of the two-dimensional geometrical computation engine LGS 2D version 1.3.
With the new version of LGS 2D v.1.3 users can use degrees of freedom diagnostics for geometrical objects. It allows determining which parts of a model are fixed due to constraints and which parts still have degrees of freedom. In such a way, users can easier control the defining of geometrical constraints. Another useful functionality of LGS 2D v.1.3 is support for inequalities. It extends the support for variables and equations appeared in 1.2 version. Now it is possible to define admissible domains for variables as well as for their algebraic or black-box combinations.
During the whole cycle of works related to Geometrical Constraints Solver LGS 2D, the company pays a lot of attention to the improvement of performance, solver’s correctness of work and bug fixing. The new LGS 2D version 1.3 outperforms the previous versions at all above points.
The LGS team has always been open to all suggestions of collaboration; the company’s approach, when our customers, partners, and even competitors can install our products under the license agreements for preliminary evaluation and testing, has brought its rewards. Our potential partners get involved in a project at the earliest stages and contribute significantly to the technical specifications of future projects.
In addition to its work on the two-dimensional geometric solver, the company continues the development of its three-dimensional geometrical solver LGS 3D, which is nearing completion and formal release. The beta-release has been made available on the LEDAS website http://lgs3d.ledas.com/download/ for preliminary testing under the Early Access Program (LGS 3D EAP). As announced previously, the first commercial release of LGS 3D is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2005.
LGS 2D v.1.3 is a C++ class library that runs on Windows 2000 and XP, Linux, FreeBSD, and AIX platforms. It can be integrated (via its API written in C) into any kind of software applications. A sample test application for LGS 2D called Lege'n'd is available for free download at the LEDAS web-site. It was created with the Open CASCADE open-source framework.
