The latest version of the world’s leading 3D CAD healing and repair software is now available
Milford, OH, February 20, 2013 – ITI TranscenData announced today the release of CADfix 9.0, the latest edition of its leading CAD interoperability tool which tackles the ever present problems of 3D model data exchange and re-use between different engineering applications. CADfix allows the user to import CAD data, efficiently repair and adapt it, and export in the most suitable form for reuse in the downstream system, eliminating the need for expensive CAD model rework.
The extensive range of CADfix import and export interfaces has been updated to the latest CAD system versions. A new 3D PDF import interface allows the CADfix user to read 3D geometry from 3D PDF collaboration files. The CATIA V5 interfaces have been extended to read and write CGR files, and the Creo interfaces upgraded to Creo 2 with support for CreoView.
CADfix’s powerful array of geometry repair tools continue to evolve with, among other things, enhanced fixes for degenerate surfaces and narrow faces, new facetted geometry processing tools and a new automatic centre line generator.
Advanced model defeaturing is a key aspect of CADfix customer applications where significant CAD to CAE process time and cost savings are realized. CADfix 9.0 places further defeaturing capabilities in the hands of the user with the release of new chamfer removal tools, fully automatic filtering and removal of small solids, and bounding box simplification of solids.
CADfix 9.0 also comes with a complete user interface refresh, including a reworking of the model interrogation and selection tools and new Hide/Show visibility controls to facilitate even more efficient model processing.
"Industry is under increasing pressure to deliver products to market in shorter and shorter timescales. This coupled with increasing complexity drives the need for ever more effective interoperability between different CAD, CAM and CAE systems", said Mark Gammon, CADfix Product Manager. “This is exactly where CADfix comes into its own. With CADfix 9.0, we have continued to add new and innovative functionality that helps to increase efficiency in the engineering workplace, saving our customers precious time and money.”
The new product release is available immediately worldwide and current CADfix customers can easily upgrade to version 9.0.
