Features of Our 3D ACIS Modeler Solution

Proven Modeler

ACIS-based applications leverage the recognized quality of modeling operations such as booleans which are a direct result of 30+ years of Spatial’s collaboration with industry leaders in design, analysis,  manufacturing and measurement.

Solution Advisor

Spatial experts ensure the continued success of ACIS-based applications by engaging to understand and support customers needs and strategies.

Expand Your Reach

Benefit from the innovation of 3DEXPERIENCE® and the CGM ecosystem to expand the reach of your application.

Integrate additional technologies such as CAD Interoperability, Visualization, Meshing, Polyhedral Modeling (combining polyhedral and B-rep modeling), 3D Deformable Modeling (including Advanced Covering), Constraint Modeling, and Hidden Line Removal.

Create 3D Models

3D ACIS Modeler supports geometry creation, surface and solid modeling, modification and query from simple models to complex assemblies using a number of modeling approaches.  

Whether the need is for direct modeling capabilities to support a history-free computer-aided design application or to implement a history-based feature tree, 3D ACIS Modeler’s broad solutions are trusted across a variety of industries.

Modify 3D Models

The ability to modify a 3D model is important as models come from many different sources with different intents. 

Our 3D ACIS software supports applications in the customization of their data preparation through its extensive set of robust operations such as Boolean, Blending, Direct Editing, Thickening, Offsetting and more.

Topology Tracking & Attributes

3D ACIS Modeler provides complete support for feature modeling applications with annotations for topology tracking from geometrical operations. 

Additionally applications can leverage attribute mechanism for attaching custom data to topological objects for tracking them through modeling operations.

High Performance

3D ACIS Modeler maintains the highest standards in performance and memory management, making continuous improvements and building on its decades of use in industry. It is thread-safe with support for multi-threaded APIs.

Query 3D Models

Utilize model topology, geometry, and metadata for read-only workflows where creation or modification of models isn’t necessary, for example visualization for xR applications.

Add-ons for specific applications

Offer incremental value to your customers by adding more functionality. Spatial provides and maintains bridges, or out of the box integration code, so that 3D ACIS Modeler developers can expand their applications with add-ons like 3D Precise Mesh, CGM HLR, CDS. 

These can then be integrated with little effort, allowing developers to focus on competitive differentiators.

“Throughout the entire implementation process the Spatial team turned out to be exactly the partner we expected.”

Frank Nagel

“This partnership enabled us to provide advanced import capabilities to our customers with a development time of a few months, while we would have needed years to develop the same tools ourselves. It opens as well new markets for our main product, FLUX, such as the computation of electrostatic and dielectric behaviors, where the complexity of shapes and devices makes essential advanced import capabilities.”

Marc Vilcot

“Spatial is essential to our software and have continuously met our expectations. Without it we couldn’t be competitive in the CMM market.”

Dr. Ing. Dieter Loebnitz
