CAD Conversion for PDM Integration

"The 3D_Evolution 4.0 CAD converter Software Suite from CoreTechnologie (CT) is a complete solution for easy integration in product data management (PDM) systems," said a company spokesperson. "It also comprises the Enterprise Data Manager (EDM) allowing for fast multi-processor computation.

"With that, a complete Conversion Engine System is joining together: with the innovative EDM process manager as well as the 3D_Evolution converter and 3D_Analyzer Viewer, CT is now offering a single-source solution that can be quickly and easily integrated in PDM environments to convert and view CAD data."

With the 3D_Evolution converter, this holistic system has direct interfaces for all major CAD systems and formats such as CATIA V5/V6, NX, Creo, Solidworks, JT and STEP. "In the batch process, the superordinate EDM controls the high performance due to conversion in a scalable way and due to the possibility of multi-processor calculation," said the spokesperson. The EDM takes care of the license availability of the converters as well as an optimal workload of the main memory on the conversion server. All conversion jobs are managed in a central job list and can be automatically entered therein via command lines as well as a directory scanner tool. Moreover, the EDM offers a web interface by means of which special conversions can also be infiltrated in the computer queue outside the PDM process.

With the 3D_Analyzer, CT additionally offers a CAD viewer, which offers functions for easy integration. The viewer comprises all major CAD readers as well as advanced analysis functions, e.g. model comparison, a wall thickness checker and clash detection of assemblies. "Within a few seconds, the viewer displays even extremely large assemblies of several hundred megabytes, which have been saved in the native CT format beforehand," said the spokesperson. The 3D_Analyzer Viewer can read the precise BREP description of CAD models, which allows for precise measurements on bore diameters and distances.
