Hello,

 

Just saw this on Solid Smack:

I have now. Interesting. Wonder if they have any thoughts on porting it to Android?

It looks like it requires the Apple Pencil, so porting to Android may not be feasible at least as it stands.

Hello,

 

The main takeaway Siemens needs from this is that Catchbook deperately needs controllable dimensions and other tools to make sketchs more predictable just from a 2D aspect.

 

I attended the Catchbook class at SEU2016 and learned some tricks, but the main tripping point of Catchbook is that it is "non-scaled".  The first dimension placed sets the "scale" of the drawing, but trying to place and edit subsequent dimensions leave you chasing your tail.

Hi,

 

They have changed their open source geometric kernel for Parasolid...

 Yes, I posted information in the recent SE and Mac OS thread- Last week.

 

Here's the link again.

Siemens has several comments but this is the more interesting one.

 

“Working closely with Shapr3D accelerated our release of Parasolid on iOS, which has enabled us for the first time, to make Parasolid available to users and developers of apps for the iPad Pro.”

 

Keep in mind that is iOS, so the mobile OS of Apple. NX (Parssolid) has been running on specfic versions of Mac OS for years- NX is used in the Apple product design.

Yes, that is true. Keep in mind Catchbook is only using the 2D solvers that Siemens licenses out. There is not a math solver! So it's only going to adjust design elements one at a time.

 

Keep in mind, Catchbook is a digital napkin.

 

A good rule of thumb when "sizing" in either Catchbook or after importing the dxf into Solid Edge is to insert the largest dimensional value first! Don't start with something small! Then the scaling should be more appropriate to your design.

Here's a video of it in action....although leveraging some powerful technology, it's still a very young application.

Interesting workflows, all the same.
