    At Brunei University, a small research team has been developing special-purpose hardware and algorithms that will greatly reduce the run times of CAD tasks currently run on conventional von Neumann computers. This article gives an example to illustrate the benefits that can be obtained by the use of hardware accelerators, indicating also how these benefits are achieved, and discusses the work curr...

    Although the Initial Graphics Exchange Specification is not without its imperfections and critics, it is widely considered to be the best format currently available for the exchange of CAD data. However, IGES is seen as an interim measure, eventually to be superseded by a new international standard. This article reviews the present state of IGES and considers likely future trends in CAD data excha... View full abstract»
