Developer Desktop - Solving Inherent Problems Associated with CAD Data Exchange
What are the inherent problems in repurposing CAD data for product design and engineering applications?
Transferring files between dissimilar systems can be a costly endeavor due to incompatible file formats. Traditionally, a loss of surface information occurs, rendering a model inaccurate. Valuable time and human resources are devoted to fixing the issues, while delivery schedules slip.
In addition, as today’s engineering environments become more complex the need is greater than ever for accurate 3D file translation. Disparate systems need to be able to consume and work with the same data in different ways throughout the product design and engineering workflow chain.
A high quality interoperability solution solves these challenges
Regardless of your market segment, overcoming the daunting problem of data interoperability requires a translation solution that enables a file to be read successfully, providing geometry that is ready to use without human intervention virtually 100% of the time. With data in this state, the engineer can focus on the work he needs to do, be it the steps for design, analysis, manufacturing, or a CMM process.
To accomplish this, you need a comprehensive 3D data exchange solution that will perform whatever geometry repair or preparation is needed for a given application, be it CAD, CAE, CAM, CMM or other market segment. By implementing a high quality interoperability solution, you will almost entirely eliminate the stumbling block of file incompatibility, accelerate your business and grow your bottom line – and in the process help your users to achieve optimal productivity.
