      • You’ve deleted your license.


New Orthofoam Lattice Block

  • We’ve significantly improved the computation speed of the orthofoam algorithm and have introduced several new inputs as a result. Below is an overview of the new orthofoam lattice block.
  • Orthofoam Lattice: Create an orthofoam lattice by generating beams between points within a certain distance and direction of each other. A scaling vector field is used to help influence the direction in which points will be connected.
    • Vertices: List of points to generate the orthofoam lattice from.
    • Scale Vector: Vector field to scale the distance function used to connect neighboring vertices together.
    • Valency: Minimum number of nearest vertices to join each vertex.
  • Previous Orthofoam blocks will be deprecated.


Toolkit Updates

  • Toolkits can now be installed from a non-admin account.
  • Toolkits 0.2.3 is now available for all cloud licensed users through app.ntopology.com.
  • For non-cloud licensed users, please contact support@ntopology.com if you’d like to receive the latest toolkit installer and example files.
