The latest version of the world's leading 3D CAD repair & healing software is now available

Paris, Wednesday, August 31st 2016. ITI TranscenData announced today the release of CADfix 11, the latest edition of its leading CAD interoperability tool which tackles the ever present problems of 3D model data exchange and re-use between different engineering applications. CADfix allows the user to import CAD data, efficiently repair and adapt it, and export in the most suitable form for reuse in the downstream system, eliminating the need for expensive CAD model rework.
