  • Publication number: 20220318637
    Abstract: In various embodiments, an inference application performs tasks associated with 3D CAD objects that are represented using B-reps. A UV-net representation of a 3D CAD object that is represented using a B-rep includes a set of 2D UV-grids and a graph. In operation, the inference application maps the set of 2D UV-grids to a set of node feature vectors via a trained neural network. Based on the node feature vectors and the graph, the inference application computes a final result via a trained graph neural network. Advantageously, the UV-net representation of the 3D CAD object enabled the trained neural network and the trained graph neural network to efficiently process the 3D CAD object.

  • Publication number: 20220318466
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a parameter domain graph application generates UV-net representations of 3D CAD objects for machine learning models. In operation, the parameter domain graph application generates a graph based on a B-rep of a 3D CAD object. The parameter domain graph application discretizes a parameter domain of a parametric surface associated with the B-rep into a 2D grid. The parameter domain graph application computes at least one feature at a grid point included in the 2D grid based on the parametric surface to generate a 2D UV-grid. Based on the graph and the 2D UV-grid, the parameter domain graph application generates a UV-net representation of the 3D CAD object. Advantageously, generating UV-net representations of 3D CAD objects that are represented using B-reps enables the 3D CAD objects to be processed efficiently using neural networks.

  • Publication number: 20220318636
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a training application trains machine learning models to perform tasks associated with 3D CAD objects that are represented using B-reps. In operation, the training application computes a preliminary result via a machine learning model based on a representation of a 3D CAD object that includes a graph and multiple 2D UV-grids. Based on the preliminary result, the training application performs one or more operations to determine that the machine learning model has not been trained to perform a first task. The training application updates at least one parameter of a graph neural network included in the machine learning model based on the preliminary result to generate a modified machine learning model. The training application performs one or more operations to determine that the modified machine learning model has been trained to perform the first task.

  • Publication number: 20220321471
    Abstract: A message indicating an auxiliary task associated with traffic transmitted via a virtual router between a pair of isolated networks is received at an offloading device. A stack multiplexer at the offloading device selects a protocol stack instance to process the message. A result of the auxiliary task is obtained by the multiplexer from the selected protocol stack instance and transmitted to the virtual router, where it is used to transmit a packet between the isolated networks.

  • Patent number: 11432308
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for providing network access services to mobile users via mobile terminals over a satellite system. In embodiments, dynamic multiplexing of traffic from fixed terminals and mobile users on the same satellite beam can take advantage of statistical multiplexing of large numbers of users and on different usage patterns between fixed terminals and mobile users. In embodiments, quality-of-service (QoS) is controlled for mobile devices at a per-user level. Mobile users may be provisioned on the satellite system according to a set of traffic policies based on their service level agreement (SLA). System resources of the satellite may be allocated to mobile users based on the demand of each mobile user and the set of traffic polices associated with each mobile user, regardless of which mobile terminal is used to access the system.
