SolidEdge Import by Datakit

 

Overview

Provides Open CASCADE Technology-based applications with the capability of reading and manipulating native data from SolidEdge.

This SolidEdge data exchange solution works as an Open CASCADE Technology Plug-in. It allows importing BRep data (geometrical and topological data) alone or in assemblies (defined with components as located parts). PAR and ASM files can be converted.

Features

* Reading geometry and topology information from SolidEdge.

Geometrical and topological native SolidEdge files can be converted to Open CASCADE Technology shapes.

Translation calls on the Shape Healing function to produce data which meet the consistency requirements of Open CASCADE Technology. The plug-in processes a PAR or ASM file of SolidEdge. Assemblies defined in SolidEdge, made of components defined as located parts or other assemblies (for assemblies at several levels), are converted to compound shapes of Open CASCADE Technology, reflecting the initial data sharing of parts.

Benefits

This translator provides native and direct exchange of SolidEdge data with Open CASCADE Technology-based applications and can considerably extend the scope and increase the quality and speed of translation. It meets the growing needs of interoperability between specific applications and users’ existing CAD systems. This interface

  • provides a high level of shapes data exchange quality;
  • requires no third-party license;
  • expands data exchange capabilities of your analysis codes.
