ITI TranscenData announced today the release of its CADfix 9.0 interoperability tool. The solution allows the user to import CAD data, efficiently repair and adapt it, and export for reuse in the downstream system, eliminating the need for CAD model rework.
A new 3D PDF import interface allows the CADfix user to read 3D geometry from 3D PDF collaboration files. The CATIA v5 interfaces have been extended to read and write CGR files, and the Creo interfaces upgraded to Creo 2 with support for CreoView.
The geometry repair tools include enhanced fixes for degenerate surfaces and narrow faces, new facetted geometry processing tools, and a new automatic centre line generator.
Advanced model defeaturing now features new chamfer removal tools, fully automatic filtering, and removal of small solids and bounding box simplification of solids.
CADfix 9.0 also comes with a complete user interface refresh, including a reworking of the model interrogation and selection tools and new hide/show visibility controls to facilitate more efficient model processing.
