In the realm of engineering simulations, the preparation of CAD models is a critical step that determines the accuracy and efficiency of the simulation process. CADfix, a powerful tool in this domain, comes to the forefront with its innovative Geometric Reasoning technology, transforming mid surfaces of solids into skeletal representations packed with comprehensive information.
Understanding Geometric Reasoning
The "Geometric Reasoning" technology is a process that derives a mid surface of a solid object and converts it into a skeletal representation, providing a wealth of information for a myriad of applications. Many engineering scenarios require more comprehensive geometric information than what is typically provided by a CAD file or a CAD interface. The Geometric Reasoning technology addresses this need by creating a medial object that encapsulates a vast amount of information.
Medial Object Creation
The medial object is constructed by tracing a disc within a face or a sphere within a volume of the original object. The position of the center of the disc or sphere with the maximum diameter constitutes the medial object. Furthermore, the medial object also includes radius information for each position, making it a complete representation of the original object.
Applications of Geometric Reasoning
The applications of Geometric Reasoning technology are diverse, and its continuous development by ITI TranscenData has allowed its selective deployment for controlled client applications. Some of the typical applications include:
- Mid surface calculation
