Expand Your Reach

Benefit from the innovation of 3DEXPERIENCE® and the CGM ecosystem to expand the reach of your application by integrating additional technologies such as CAD Interoperability, Visualization, Meshing, Polyhedral Modeling, Constraint Modeling, and Hidden Line Removal.

3D ACIS Modeler Features Include:

Create 3D Models

3D ACIS Modeler supports geometry creation, 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 CAD 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. 3D ACIS Modeler 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.
