Fit an arbitrary set of points into a given rectangle.

Fit an arbitrary set of points into a given rectangle.

A simple problem : Fit a flat set of points on XY plane into a given rectangle. Or in other words place the given rectangle around the set of points which contains all the points. In the same time determine if the problem has a solution or not? In this video I used...

Para 3D 5.0 is released.

Finally the new version of Para 3D is released. In this version we ensured the compatibility of Para 3D with 3DS MAX 2021. For our current user the new build is now available on Para 3D license manager. For those who like to try the demo version the upgrade will be...
Plane and Solid/Surface intersection

Plane and Solid/Surface intersection

So far we discussed Plane-Plane, Plane-Line and Plane-Curve intersections. None of these methods were not found in REVT-API and you had to find a work around to implement them yourself. The same applies to Plane-Solid intersection which we discuss in this post. The...
Plane and curve intersection (2)

Plane and curve intersection (2)

In my last my post I discussed this topic in the context of linear algebra and differential geometry. We also briefly discussed root finding method. Although the method works properly but you are probably looking for something faster!  Here I would like to use a...
Plane and Curve intersection

Plane and Curve intersection

Plane-Curve intersection from algebraic point of view is quiet similar to Plane-Line intersection which we discussed in previous post. In this post I would like to take the same approach in finding the Plane-Curve intersection which involves root finding techniques,...
