Boulder, CO – Anark Corporation announced support for OpenFlight™, the most widely adopted 3D visualization format for real-time 3D visualization. Anark Core 2.2 exports OpenFlight™ data using native OpenFlight Read/Write API's from Presagis™.
OpenFlight™ is a 3D visual database format that has become a defacto standard for the visual simulation industry. Anark added OpenFlight support to Core 2.2 to enable viz-sim application developers to quickly and easily prepare and simplify complex 3D CAD geometry from tools such as like CATIA®, Pro/ENGINEER, Inventor®, and SolidWorks for use in visual simulation applications.
Easy and effective geometry simplification features, coupled with powerful automation capabilities, make Anark Core the most cost-effective platform for preparing 3D CAD models for a wide array of military and civilian modeling, visualization, and simulation applications. Transforming 3D CAD geometry into lightweight, yet detailed and realistic models for use in real-time 3D visualization, training, and simulation applications is a costly and labor-intensive process. Now that Anark Core supports OpenFlight, it is much more cost effective for developers to import optimized CAD models directly into the popular modeling tool, Creator™, and also into popular 3D Image Generation environments such as Vega Prime™ and Lyra™.
