Moscow Poly Students Developed ‘Pneumatic Press Configurator’ App at Hackathone by “C3D Labs”
Moscow poly team formed of IT students studying “Integration and Programming in CAD Systems” has taken part in a hackathone in engineering modeling of technological devices by ‘C3D Labs’.
The participants has develop their own application based on interaction with the C3D geometric kernel. The work of Moscow Poly team resulted in developing “Pneumatic Press Configurator” app. This program helps to create an electronic model of the pneumatic press for the parameters specified by the user and allows to personally interact with the technical device model , as well as make parametric design.
In the course of one month, the 6 students were developing the app. At the first stage, they made details in Compus-3D CAD system, created associative drawings and developed preliminary details by using API component of the ‘Modeler’ geometric kernel. That was followed by the stage of assembly with the use of ‘Solver’ and ‘Converter’ elements. The project culminated with developing an app at the ‘QT’ platform. All this time, there were online seminars, workshops and consultations by the ‘C3D Labs’ experts.
The team was headed by Moscow Poly assistant professor Anton Tolstikova, professor Ilya Lavrenenko and assistant professor Andrei Dzhunkovskiy (SMART-Technologies department).
“Every member of the team acted as a developer”, – shared the head of the “Integration and Programming in CAD Systems” educational program Anton Tolstikov. – “During that period, the team has improved their skills in programming thanks to the personal interaction with geometric kernel. Apart from professional skills, the students learnt to work in team, distribute tasks and help each other. The experience they acquired allows to develop CAD by using Russian geometric kernel, that is one of the most relevant tasks under the imports phase-out policy”.
