Anark Core adds product restructuring capabilities, expanded PDM server integration, and support for SolidWorks, Inventor, ACIS, and CATIA V5 visualization data to its automated 3D CAD transformation platform. The new platform 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 Core platform quickly and easily transforms native 3D CAD data for use throughout manufacturing design, engineering, and support departments. Unlike conventional CAD tools and translators, Core lets you 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 ‚â€œrecipes‚â€ that can be applied automatically to revised product design data, saving countless hours of labor each time product designs are changed.
Some of the new features are:
‚â€¢ Simple, drag-and-drop editing of product structure to facilitate the creation of multiple product representations from original assembly data‚â€”such as vendor specific BOMs, or visualization and simulation-ready hierarchies.
‚â€¢ Quickly and easily remove B-rep face geometry to produce inner- and outer-mold-line representations for visualization, simulation, and OEM-supplier data exchange.
‚â€¢ Core CAD Transformer Service enables PDM servers to fully automate Anark Core Server for change-list-driven transformation of CAD geometry.
‚â€¢ Import and convert visualization assemblies and geometry from CATIA V5 CATPRODUCT, CATPART, and CGR files into multiple lightweight mesh formats.
‚â€¢ Import and convert assemblies and B-rep geometry from SolidWorks and Inventor formats.
‚â€¢ Import and export B-rep geometry in ACIS SAT format.
