Anark Releases Version 2.0 of Its 3D CAD Transformation Platform

BOULDER, Colo.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 31, 2008— Anark Corporation today announced Anark Core 2.0 its innovative, automated 3D CAD transformation platform that adds expanded conversion, transformation, and automation capabilities to cost-effectively prepare 3D product design data for visualization, simulation, CAE, and supply-chain-data-exchange applications.

The Anark Core platform is a robust software solution that quickly and easily transforms native 3D CAD data for use throughout manufacturing design, engineering, and support organizations. Unlike conventional CAD tools and translators, Anark Core enables users to automate the modification of 3D product structure and geometry, and export revised product data into high-precision B-rep and lightweight mesh formats. The system creates recipes that can be applied automatically to revised product design data, saving countless hours of labor each time product designs are changed.

As the leading provider of 3D product visualization and configuration solutions for the residential and commercial interior design markets, we manage a high volume of disparate 3D product design data in order to effectively deliver our customer solutions, said Jean Mignault, CEO of 20-20 Technologies. Anark Core 2.0 enables 20-20 Technologies and its supporting manufacturer clients, as an OEM partner of Anark, to automate this process to cost-effectively prepare and manage product design data for its world-class product catalog and configuration solutions.

Leading manufacturers have embraced the Anark Core Platform, and were committed to adding new and innovative capabilities, supporting additional native formats, and expanding its powerful PDM integration features, said Stephen Collins, President and CEO of Anark. Our customers rely on Anark solutions to extract more value from their 3D product design data for use throughout the enterprise. Anark Core 2.0 further reduces the time and expense required to prepare use-case-specific product geometry, while providing automation to ensure the latest product design changes are reflected.

New Feature Highlights in Anark Core 2.0

  • Simple, drag-and-drop editing of product structure to facilitate the creation of multiple product representations from original assembly data such as vendor-specific BOMs, or visualization and simulation-ready hierarchies
  • Quickly and easily remove B-rep face geometry to produce inner- and outer-mold-line representations for visualization, simulation, and OEM-supplier data exchange
  • New Core CAD Transformer Service enables PDM servers to fully automate Anark Core Server for change-list-driven transformation of CAD geometry
  • Import and convert visualization assemblies and geometry from CATIA® V5 CATPRODUCT, CATPART, and CGR files into multiple lightweight mesh formats
  • Import and convert assemblies and B-rep geometry from SolidWorks® and Inventor® formats
  • Import and export B-rep geometry in ACIS® SAT format
