R25 of 3D ACIS Modeler and 3D InterOp Provides More Robust Features and Functionality; Delivering Ever-Increasing Intelligent Models
BROOMFIELD, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 3, 2014 — Spatial Corp., the leading provider of 3D development components for design, manufacturing and engineering solutions, has announced the R25 release of 3D ACIS Modeler and 3D InterOp for data reuse. The latest release delivers enhanced features that enable Spatial’s customers, such as Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Machine Tool Manufacturers, to expand their market share and competitively differentiate their products.
Spatial’s integrated portfolio of 3D solutions allows customers to become more competitive by providing the most advanced 3D capabilities for 3D application development. The functionality and features in this latest release will enable customers to reach new markets, such as automotive and construction. This release also continues to meet Spatial’s objective of making 3D models more intelligent by including increased PMI capabilities, advanced feature detection, and support for Model-Based Engineering (MBE) / Model-Based Definition (MBD).
“Leveraging Spatial’s data reuse capabilities in their R25 release enables us to integrate our applications more easily into our existing workflows with very little disruption and high reliability. For our end users, problems in the workflow have an associated cost and are typically viewed as problems in their application. Functionality in Spatial’s R25 release prevents our users from ever seeing problems by automatically cleaning and repairing the CAD model during the import process,” stated Carl Olsen, lead software engineer for OMAX Corporation. “By providing a solution to our customers that saves them significant time and money, we enable them to stay ahead of the competitive curve and focus their time on innovation.“
“At Spatial, we partner with our customers and provide them with easy-to-use components that handle the underlying complexity of 3D modeling, allowing them to focus on their unique innovations,” explained Vivekan Iyengar, vice president of research and development for Spatial. “These latest enhancements to 3D ACIS Modeler and 3D InterOp provide even more features that will enable our customers to expand into new markets with increasingly innovative solutions.”
Spatial’s integrated portfolio of 3D components and accompanying services for software developers is the backbone of industry-leading companies that provide 3D solutions from desktops to tablets. For example, ISVs who develop solutions around 3D models for industries such as AEC/BIM, CAE, CAM and EDA seek 3D software components to enable increased innovation. Machine Tool Manufacturers are seeking better ways to serve their customers with software that is cost-effective, easy-to-use, and takes advantage of the nuances of their machines.
3D ACIS Modeler
Providing a foundation of high-quality 3D components, Spatial’s 3D ACIS Modeler accelerates application delivery time by simplifying development efforts, thereby saving software development time. The latest version of 3D ACIS Modeler includes the following enhancements:
- New Boolean features that simplify manufacturing workflows.
- Easy handling of non-exact geometry, allowing more intelligent, effective re-use of geometry, which saves time and allows designers and engineers to focus on innovation.
- New functionality for feature recognition enabling designers to edit feature level geometry without the need to edit the model history to be used for visualization, analysis and simulation. This capability was specifically designed for the EDA market and the modeling of printed circuit boards where the features can easily be in the thousands.
3D InterOp for Data Reuse
Spatial’s 3D InterOp provides the ability to selectively import product structure, graphics data, geometry and PMI from a variety of leading CAD and neutral formats, allowing improved competitive differentiation, faster time-to-revenue, and greater quality for application development. Enhancements to the latest version of 3D InterOp include the following:
- Support for additional 3D data formats (DXF, DWG, STL and those commonly used in the automotive market), allowing Spatial’s customers to reach into new markets and industries.
- Expanded PMI capabilities–both graphical and semantic, allowing Spatial’s customers to provide capabilities to support MBE/MBD initiatives.
R25 enhancements to both components will take full advantage of the performance capabilities of any underlying hardware the end user is using. Software developers will be able to take advantage of these “out of the box” capabilities, such as multi-thread and multi-processing, without special programming.
