MIDAS IT
MIDAS IT reduces efforts to create complex structural analysis models for FEM finite element mesh modeling

Mission
Create an application providing 3D feature-based modeling for automated mesh generation that could be used directly by the civil and architectural industry reducing design-to-manufacturing time.

Solution
  • Development of MIDAS/FX+, an innovative Windows application that uses Open CASCADE Technology modeling kernel to build a complete pre-processor, including a CAD feature-based modeler

  • Using OPEN CASCADE Support via A-la carte programs for several years

  • Access to the source of advanced samples that help integrate Open CASCADE Technology modules into MIDAS IT industrial applications

  • Adopting OPEN CASCADE value added components* like the Parasolid-XT interface


  • Results
  • Reduction of costs thanks to open source and Open CASCADE Technology Public License

  • Shorter time to market thanks to concentrating on client's specific know-how solutions and leaving kernel-related issues to be covered by OPEN CASCADE support

  • Substantially higher productivity thanks to reusing know-how embedded within OPEN CASCADE advanced samples

  • Extended operability with other CAD systems thanks to integration of the Open CASCADE Technology interface with Parasolid and reusing powerful Shape Healing capabilities

  • Up-to-date technology and minimized migration costs obtained through access to regular maintenance releases of Open CASCADE Technology

    (*) This application was developed using
    Parasolid-XT Import,
    Surfaces from Scattered Points and
    Canonical Recognition - advanced software components available from OPEN CASCADE.



    OPEN CASCADE Support team always demonstrates good understanding of our needs, and provides answers and solutions we may rely upon. Using OPEN CASCADE Support via the A-la carte program provided convenience and flexibility in choosing the appropriate type of support at each particular phase of the project. Access to maintenance releases allowed to quickly solve blocking problems and smoothly progress in our development.
