Cad Production Pipeline

Final Report Summary - CADPIPE (Cad production pipeline)

The CADPIPE project aimed to create a high-quality automatic three-dimensional (3D) computer-aided design (CAD) development tool. Specifically, CADPIPE aimed to build solutions for:
- decreasing the amount of different working environments of CAD, 3D visualisation and real-time rendering environment. There would be no longer need to use separate format conversion tool between CAD and the 3D visualisation tool, as well as between the visualisation tool and the real-time rendering system.
- smoother data conversion pipeline that allows more accurate information preservation within the pipeline.
- the possibility to add basic interactive and physical behaviour properties to the models in the 3D visualisation phase.
- more efficient real-time rendering performance for the data as it can be prepared in the modelling or visualisation tool to suit the needs for real-time rendering
