Smart Geometry 2011: Improving the Interface

There were several stages of development today with the C++ software interface. There has been an improvement to the user interface, allowing better visualisation of the inputs with ability to manipulate them. This can graphically be seen clearer in the geometry window.

Now that the input data is quite flexible through image maps, we focused on the base geometry – as this was still limited as a 2D plane. We wanted to improve the versatility of this by allowing the importing of geometry from Rhino. In addition to this, we added code to check if the file has been updated to allow for a realtime update as we progressed.
