TranscenData Europe will be launching the latest version of CADfix at Solid Modelling 2005. CADfix 7.0 boasts a host of new features and visitors to the exhibition will be the first to see this next generation data interoperability tool in action.
New for version 7.0 is the ability to import native files directly from UG, SolidWorks and Inventor as well as updated support for the latest versions of all major CAD systems, including Pro/E Wildfire and CATIA V5, and the ACIS and Parasolid kernels. As with all CADfix releases, updates and enhancements are included for the standard IGES and STEP interfaces.
To reflect CADfix’s increasing use within the CAE market, version 7.0 also supports the latest CAE systems and includes a new export capability to the Centaur CFD mesher. CADfix 7.0 also boasts impressive new feature selection, recognition and defeaturing algorithms, particularly important for the CAE market.
The user interface of version 7.0 features several enhancements, all designed for clarity and ease of use for both novice and experienced CADfix operators. A new �always active’ selection facility gives the user quick on-screen entity picking, and a powerful new �feature selection’ mode automatically highlights complex features in the model, such as groups of connected faces or fillets, ready for processing.
These rapid selection methods can be used in conjunction with a new �Instant Fix’ toolbar that presents some of the commonly used CADfix tools, such as entity deletion, creation and simplification, as immediate action buttons.
John Meaney, Sales and Marketing Director at TranscenData Europe comments: “Anyone exhibiting at Solid Modelling this year will know how much the industry is changing and developing at the moment, particularly in the way software solutions are being used and who they are being used by. At TranscenData, we have created CADfix 7.0 to reflect the needs and considerations of this changing marketplace. It’s always an exciting moment presenting a new product for the first time, and we know that Solid Modelling is the right place to demonstrate what version 7.0 can really do.”
As well as discovering the benefits of CADfix 7.0, visitors to Solid Modelling can also find out about TranscenData’s entire range of CAD data interoperability tools and how to solve issues such as CAD file comparison and legacy migration. TranscenData Europe will be based at stand number 49 for the show, which takes place on 27 and 28 April at the NEC in Birmingham, UK.
