While migration of standalone 2D drawings is focused on the effective mapping of these drawings into more modern formats, exchange of 3D models data is complicated by differing data representation, geometric tolerances and diverse modeling conventions and practices. These issues lead to CAD model re-work, re-mastering, and in some cases, design divergence.
CAD Interop has a comprehensive suite of technologies to provide interoperability between today's neutral standard formats, modeling kernels and Native CAD formats. This technology serves as the foundation for translators offered by the leading CAD/CAM/CAE vendors such as Siemens PLM Software, Dassault Systemes, PTC, AutoDesk, MSC, Mentor Graphics and others. In addition to vendor partnerships, ITI Transcendata's technology is used by leading manufacturers such as Boeing and Lockheed Martin to develop internal 3D model migration strategies.
