"Dr. Gilles Débarbouillé of the Open CASCADE team has been invited by U.C. Berkeley as guest lecturer for a seminar course for graduate students with a CAD, mechanical or graphics background, particularly those from the mechanical engineering and computer science schools. The goal of the seminar is to introduce the participants to the architecture and geometric algorithms of the Open CASCADE 3D modeling kernel and to help make this open software system more widely known in the U.S. The course begins in January 2001 and will run until the end of March."

"Dr. Débarbouillé will also serve as a consultant to the CyberCut and CyberBuild projects of the University's Integrated Manufacturing Laboratory. These concern tools for validating design for manufacturability, tools for automated manufacturing, a simple design tool, and a Web-based CAD. According to Prof. Carlo Sequin of the Computer Science Division of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science: "Open CASCADE is key to the CyberCut and CyberBuild projects. It saves us time, since developing a complete solution by ourselves would have taken too long. Using proprietary code was also out of the question because we need to be able to fix things in a timely manner and to develop our own extensions. We can do this only with an open-source tool."
