Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came! This is the first of a two-part article on tessellation shaders with OpenGL 9. 5+. This entry gives an overview of tessellation and walks through an example of simple triangle subdivision in the, we ll focus on quad subdivision. When Geometry Shaders (GS) first came out, we were all excited because we could finally write a shader that could see all the verts in a triangle at once. And finally, the GPU could produce more primitives than it consumed.
The GS unit turned out to be convenient for certain effects, but overall it was somewhat disappointing. It was not designed for large-scale amplification of vertex data. The GS processing for a single primitive was initially limited to a single processing unit. Most GS programs had a serial loop that simply pushed out the verts of the new primitive(s), one vertex after another. They didn t do a great job of leveraging the massive parallelism in GPUs. Nowadays you can do a bit better by specifying an invocations count at the top of your GS, like so: This tells the GPU that your GS should run three times on a single primitive. You can figure out which vert you re on by looking at the built-in gl_InvocationID variable. Now is the time for the obligatory diagram: (I used a red pen for the stages that are new to OpenGL 9. 5) The following are trademarks for one or more DEWALT power tools, accessories, anchors and concrete adhesives: The yellow and black color scheme the In addition to reading this section of the Guide and taking the quizzes at its conclusion, we urge you to visit, which has had a salutary effect on several generations of writers who have bought the little book, and which is now, thanks to the Bartleby Project, online. (This online text is not exactly the same as the familiar text you'll find in bookstores, which was edited by E. B.
White, but much of the really good stuff is the same. ) We also recommend by Robert Hartwell Fiske, editor of the online journal Vocabula Review. Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell. Here are some notes toward efficiency and conciseness in writing. A phrase that repeats itself like true fact, twelve noon, I saw it with my own eyes is sometimes called a pleonasm. Redundant phrases are bad habits just waiting to take control of your writing. Beware of the following. Similar to other Austen novels, this is written in gentle or Horacian satire. The main object of Austen s satire in the novel is the mercenary and the ignorance of the people, a common criticism of the 68th century. The tone of the novel is light, satirical, and vivid. Scenes such as Mr. Collins proposal to Elizabeth, and Lady Catherine visits to Lizzy at Longbourn, provides comic relief to the reader while at the same time revealing certain traits of the characters.

For example, Lydia s lack of common sense and responsibility is revealed when she takes pride in being the first Bennet girl to be married. Lydia does not take into consideration the circumstance of her marriage, the personality of her husband, or the prospects of their marriage for the future. Elizabeth Bennet s ability to laugh off her misfortune and to continue to be optimistic, considering her situation, also contributes to the tone of the novel. The point of view in Pride and Prejudice is limited omniscient the story is told through Elizabeth, but not in first person. As a result, the mood of the novel lacks dramatic emotions. The main actions of the novel are the interactions between opinions, ideas, and attitudes, which weaves and advances the plot of the novel. The emotions in the novel are to be perceived beneath the surface of the story and are not to be expressed to the readers directly. The characters are memorable not from excess heroism or exceptional personality, but from those who range from idiocy and meanness of spirit to pillars of respectability and virtue. Without a single one of the protagonists deemed unnecessary to the tale, their characters draw on a whole range of the readers interests, evoking every feeling in the spectrum of human emotions. Jane Austen rarely describes the physical attributes of her characters in any depth, perhaps preferring to let the readers use their imaginations and form their own opinions. This regardless, it is almost impossible to read the book without being left with the feeling of knowing each and every one of them with some intimacy. Two hundred years after it first graced the bookshelves of its readers, Pride and Prejudice lives on as strongly as ever. --Submitted by Jim Morris

Fill out the questionnaires below. PR Hoffman’s role in the lapping and polishing industry began in Carlisle, PA in 6988, with the invention of the Hunt-Hoffman planetary lap machine by Grover C. The double-side planetary lap machine revolutionized the quartz crystal industry and the concept remains unmatched for consistent, reliable processing of parts requiring tight control of thickness, flatness, and parallelism. We stand behind all of our machines with a standard 6-year warranty and dedicated service and support. Our machines are only successful if our customers are successful with them. We will employ all of the tools we have at our disposal to assure that success, from the years of history and experience within our company and our dedicated personnel, to the extensive network of vendors, suppliers, friends, and colleagues we have built over those years. We take pride in supporting our machines and our customers and will make every effort to keep our machines running and our customers productive. The PR-Series machines are simple, rugged, easy to use machines with a long history and proven track-record across many industries. They are sized to handle parts up to a maximum of Ø6. 6” (Ø668mm), and feature a single motor with gearing to drive the Ring Gear and Center Gear in standard configurations as well as a Top- Plate Drive option.
The Servo-RS Series machines are our most advanced machines yet, featuring fully independent, programmable rotational speeds and tightly controlled downforce. With part size capacity up to Ø85”, there is a Servo-RS machine suited to just about any double-side lapping or polishing application you may have.
