Robert McNeel & Associates, makers of the Rhinoceros freeform modeling tool, and SpaceClaim, which markets 3D CAD software, announced what they call a “roundtrip integration” between their products.
The move is designed to improve the product stylist workflow by giving product stylists seamless data exchange capabilities between their surfacing and design applications. SpaceClaim accomplished this by adding 3DM to SpaceClaim LTX, officials say, which allows users to open Rhino files directly in the SpaceClaim software for creating solid geometry. The 3D solid design can then be sent back to the Rhino file format for precise surface creation by the stylish.
As a result of the Rhino/SpaceClaim LTX integration, users can create free-form surfaces in the context of the product design.

MCU manufacturers have become excellent sources for information you can use to get a head start on your next design. In addition to the normal data sheets and evaluation boards, MCU manufacturers also often provide complete reference designs -- working designs that establish a proven baseline for creating your own custom design.
