Tech Soft 3D’s data access solution now offers Autodesk® Inventor® B-Rep import with improved visual PMI support for JT, CATIA and NX files.
Bend, OR USA – June 19, 2014 – Tech Soft 3D announces today that its HOOPS Exchange toolkit now connects developers with even more precise access to original CAD data with its 7.2 release. Targeted enhancements build on its reputation as the go-to solution for fast, comprehensive and highly accurate data translation. Highlights of HOOPS Exchange 7.2 include:
- Full import of B-Rep data from Autodesk Inventor files, critical when completely accurate conversions are required.
- A variety of improvements to visual PMI within JT, CATIA and NX files.
- Advancements in healing techniques with a particular focus on adapting non-Parasolid-based models for use with the Parasolid modeling kernel.
“It’s the small details that enable translation to run smoothly,” says Gavin Bridgeman, Tech Soft 3D VP of Products. “Our object is to provide as much value to our customers with each format we support – and a huge part of that is enabling access to a model’s full data attributes, from B-Rep to PMI.”
“By integrating HOOPS Exchange from Tech Soft 3D into VGStudio Max, we get the complete PMI (GD&T) data from the original file for intelligent display and interaction,” says Christof Reinhart, CEO of Volume Graphics GmbH. “This allows our users to save considerable time in preparing measurement plans, increasing the efficiency of quality control significantly.”
