Spatial Announces Publication of 3D Modeling with ACIS by Jonathan Corney and Theodore Lim.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 14, 2001

Spatial Corp., a market-leading provider of world-class 3D software components, today announced the publication of the book 3D Modeling with ACIS written by Jonathan Corney and Theodore Lim.

This new edition is a revision of the 1997 book entitled 3D Modeling with the ACIS Kernel and Toolkit, that has been updated, and extended, to cover the most recent versions of ACIS (i.e. 6.3 and 7.0). The new edition contains information for all users, including novices, occasional users, who know the principles but cannot recall the valid syntax; programmers (both commercial and academic); and people who are interested in an overview of the capabilities of ACIS.

"The aim of the book is to introduce the academic theory of geometric modeling alongside working examples of ACIS code," said Jonathan Corney, Heriot-Watt University. "We wanted to provide users with a more in-depth look at optimizing their use of the kernel. We know from experience that most people learn far quicker from experimenting with examples of programs than reading reference materials. So the new book is essentially a pattern-book that allows the reader to take a copy and modify approach to developing ACIS-based software."

"We are excited about what this book means for Spatial partners and applaud Jonathan Corney and Theodore Lim for writing it," said Dan Ganousis, vice president marketing and services, Spatial. "This book is an excellent resource for both commercial and academic users, one that will increase their understanding and optimization of the ACIS kernel, and another validation of the importance of ACIS to the 3D market."

3D Modeling with ACIS includes numerous new topics that provide value to a myriad of ACIS users, including, but not limited to, modifying models via local operations such as shelling and blending, graph theory, laws, selective Booleans, skinning and lofting, and healing. The text is a companion (rather than a substitute) for the existing ACIS documentation and details how different aspects of ACIS can be utilized via the API and Scheme interfaces available to ACIS users.

Published by Saxe-Coburg Publications, the book can be purchased from their site or by contacting one of their representatives. For more information about the book and to place orders, please visit:
