SOLIDWORKS Read/Write & PTC Creo® Read Modules Improved
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. June 30, 2015 – CCE, a leading provider in advanced interoperability technology and engineering services, has released updates of its Open Data Exchange (ODX) libraries.
“SOLIDWORKS and Creo are some of the most widely used CAD design tools in the manufacturing supply chain. Ability to do fast iterative design is extremely important to suppliers of large OEMs. CCE’s updated ODX libraries feature improvements in identifying and translating persistent data information, thus reducing the time required to update the modified designs,” said Vinay Wagle, CCE’s VP of Sales & Marketing.
CCE’s SOLIDWORKS and PTC Creo® ODX libraries have had an array of improvements in the most recent release, which include:
ODX/SW (Read & Write)
Attributes support has been improved by providing face names (in reader) and writing visibility status for user-defined references planes (in writer).
Assembly persistence information has been enhanced by providing instance persistent IDs.
Persistence information support has been enhanced by providing document persistent IDs.
Assembly features support has been improved by providing access to entity geometry definition and surface visualization properties in assembly context.

About Open Data Exchange (ODX):
Open Data Exchange (ODX) libraries read & write Native CAD data. File formats that are currently supported for ODX include CATIA V4, CATIA V5, CATIA V6, NX, Inventor, SOLIDWORKS, Pro/ENGINEER (PTC Creo®), JT, Solid Edge, Parasolid, IGES, STEP, 3D PDF, VDA, & STL. Applications developed using ODX libraries are independent of CAD. The libraries written in C & C++ are easy to implement & follow software releases via continuous updates. Apart from licensing the library components, we also provide integrations services to integrate our libraries into customer applications. The true benefit of using our ODX libraries is the reduced cost to the user. Our ODX libraries do not require CAD software or licenses, which can be quite costly. ODX gives the user the ability to read & write native CAD files without the cost of ownership associated with the CAD system.
