The company ships toolkits to extract geometries, machining features and Product Manufacturing Information (PMI), directly from native CAD data : Dassault's CatiaV5/6™, SolidWorks™ (WIP), Siemens NX™, PTC Creo™, STEP, without the need of any separate CAD software license :

Datakit provides Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) through APIs designed for both semantic and rendering purpose. Valuable tolerancing, surfacing and geometric associativity is supported for various PMI entities :
  • Datums, Targets, References.
  • Dimensions : Linear, Angular, Radial...
  • Geometrical Tolerances : Flatness, Cylindricity, Surface Profile, Position, Angularity...
  • Roughness and Welding.
This helps CMM software vendors in the process of identifying critical points of interest and testing 3D measurements against original CAD design geometries.

Support also includes Machining Features CAD native information, that can be used to clearly identify tooling operations for control purpose :
  • Hole design numerical values : positioning, sketch, depths, diameters, angles, direction.
  • Semantic data : hole type (simple, tapered, counter bored, sunk, drilled etc...), tolerancing (can include standard definition), pitch and thread information.
  • Links to sketch, support and generated geometries.
  • Pattern / Toolpath information : rectangular, circular, user-defined, instances.
