Dear all
DG Kernel is getting somewhere, but we still have few things to add and solidify.
I intend to start explaining what is the idea and why the transition.

First of all, why is the name change?

The main reason is that CAD in the product name was a misnomer. We are developing a programming tool. A software which makes CAD programmable. CAD means design. Despite it does not mean a ruler and compass involved, somebody has to click menu options. draw lines, execute operations, etc. This is essentially manual work. Somebody has to think and do it on a very low level.

Geometric kernel on the other hand means automatic generation of objects. So it is practically the opposite.

Kernels are unavoidable not only because of productivity, but because there are many processes, particularly in CAM (see eMotion or Make your move samples in KC 5.2) where the surface is a result of complicated calculation which can only be performed in software.

So the Digital Geometry. It expresses very precisely what we developing and where we are going.

We still intend to develop all sides of rendering and viewer interaction, but DG Kernel not a finished ready to use application. It is a building block for your app or component, specific to your business.

More shortly...
