Tech Soft 3D announced the latest release of HOOPS Exchange, featuring more comprehensive data access for all leading open CAD formats, the company says.
"Version 6.0 further differentiates HOOPS Exchange from any other solution on the market," said Gavin Bridgeman, Tech Soft 3D vice president of products. "We've extended our strong reputation for speed and accuracy to an even broader spectrum of formats on an expanded set of platforms. Our goal is to make data import/export easy for the application developer, as well as fast, accurate and virtually invisible for their end users."
The new 3D PDF import capability builds on HOOPS Exchange support for U3D and PRC (3D PDF formats), and permits applications to directly read 3D data from PDF files. The solution also now provides the ability to export JT, including the full B-rep definition, without the need to license additional technology.
New operations prepare imported data to better support modeling operations in the Parasolid and ACIS modeling kernels, and application developers can now use sewing routines to join unconnected surfaces into a solid.
The system now supports import of the Rhino format, as well as support for OS X development.
