D-Cubed HLM

Integrate accurate hidden line views for high quality illustrations in your CAD, CAM and CAE applications with D-Cubed Hidden Line Manager (HLM).

An engine block is rendered with hidden lines displayed in a 3D design application.

Why D-Cubed Hidden Line Manager?

Enable applications to produce high-quality engineering drawings, technical illustrations and hidden line views from 3D models with D-Cubed HLM.

Available as a software component for integration by software vendors, hidden line computation benefits many different applications, including mechanical CAD, industrial styling, architecture and technical illustration.

See what's included

Compute visible, hidden, occluded and silhouette edge segments in parallel or perspective views.

You can also compute outline segments that enhance the clarity of an engineering drawing or technical illustration - global outlines emphasize the boundary of a part, whereas local outlines can be used to distinguish interior features.

Hatching and shading operations are also supported by the identification of visible and invisible regions in a face.

Generate accurate results, even on large assemblies and complex free-form surfaces. Performance optimizations include incremental computations in dynamic scenes and efficient memory usage with demand-driven part loading and instancing.

Operate on any combination of exact, faceted, solid, surface, wireframe, manifold and non-manifold geometry formats. Flexible integration architecture supports multiple model formats in the same application. Tolerant to models containing errors, such as gaps between adjacent faces.
