Enhanced Technical Data Packages and PMI

TransMagic, Inc. has released TransMagic R12 SP3, which includes enhanced capabilities for one-step Technical Data Package creation, improved ability to read SOLIDWORKS and STEP PMI and improved performance in other areas.

Technical Data Package (TechDocs) Enhancements

TechDocs is a 3D PDF with CAD data and custom, automated attachments. Features include:

  • A manipulatable 3D part or assembly model with model tree and assembly hierarchy
  • An optional cover sheet with company name, address and logo
  • Part information including User Defined Attributes (UDA)
  • Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI) views and captures, including part sections, and semantic PMI in model tree
  • Material properties, mass properties and surface area
  • User-defined attachments such as Excel spreadsheets, Word docs and screen captures
  • CAD and polygonal attachments; selected CAD and polygonal formats are translated and attached to the TechDocs 3D PDF automatically
  • All TechDocs values for cover page, part information and attachments are saved for easy, one-step automated Technical Data Package creation.

Enhanced PMI support:

  • PMI Read for STEP.

Other improvements:

  • Inventor Reader now supports T-spline surfaces directly
  • Improved rendering of MagicCheck environment and reports, including edge rendering disabled by default for improved result
  • PMI Font Scaling to correct Creo and NX CAD system anomalies where PMI font is in mm and part designed in inches
  • Increased Viz-Rep performance in all formats
  • PMI, GDT, Views and Captures all now saved and restored to the TransMagic TMR file, useful for storage or saving progress.
