Siemens Expands Convergent Modeling in Parasolid to Increase Productivity with Mixed Geometric Data Formats

Dec. 17, 2020

Siemens Digital Industries Software has updated Parasolid® software, its open software technology for geometric modeling. The latest release expands on the exciting potential of Convergent Modeling for applications such as generative engineering, 3D printing and reverse engineering with new tools for integrating previously incompatible facet and B-rep data formats within a single modeling session. This enhanced support for mixed models can help drive significant productivity gains by eliminating the need for time-consuming model conversion and allowing users to apply classic design techniques directly to facet models.

Parasolid can also now add more value to design and engineering workflows in many different applications by allowing users to intersect meshes with all classic B-rep surface types and perform more sophisticated configurations of fillets and chamfers on mixed models. In addition, there are new tools for direct editing of faces and for rendering and repairing mixed models. Extensive classic B-rep enhancements have also been made in areas such as blending, sweeping, non-uniform scaling and rendering, bringing users gains in modeling flexibility and performance.

The Parasolid geometric modeling kernel is used in Siemens’ own Solid Edge® software and NX software and is at the core of the Xcelerator portfolio’s open and flexible ecosystem. Parasolid is also used in over 350 other applications from industry leading CAD/CAM/CAE/AEC software vendors.
