T-FLEX CAD Adds SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Inventor and Rhino Translators
Moscow, Russia, May 11, 2007 – Top Systems, the pioneering developer of advanced parametric design solutions, has announced the release of the newly updated set of translation modules for its T-FLEX CAD system.
T-FLEX CAD 10 now lets users work with a wide variety of file formats so they can open, edit, and save 3D models in various formats their customers and suppliers need. The new options include direct import from SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Inventor and Rhino part and assembly models. These translation modules were added to the existing set of translators that includes Parasolid, STEP, IGES and other formats.
The SolidWorks, Solid Edge and Rhino import modules allow geometry and assembly data to be imported directly from the native disk-based files without running any extra applications. Also there is possibility to import SolidWorks models from a running copy of the SolidWorks solid modeling application using API. In this case assemblies will retain complete definition of mates to support kinematics and dynamics analysis in T-FLEX CAD.
When importing Autodesk Inventor part or assembly data T-FLEX uses either a live running copy of Autodesk Inventor or freely distributable Autodesk Inventor Viewer.
Direct support for both export and import of Rhino files allows Rhino users to extend the existing functionality of Rhino with a wide set of additional modeling, drafting and analysis tools of T-FLEX CAD.
“CAD conversion has always been a key aspect of T-FLEX CAD software development to allow our customers to work with diverse 3D CAD data,” says Sergey Kozlov, technical director, Top Systems. “The latest development allows us to provide a much wider set of precise and quality import/export converters for the most popular 3D model formats.”
The latest update of T-FLEX CAD 10 with the new translation options is now available to all Top Systems subscribers for immediate download.
