Light-weight models for Visualization and Virtual Reality

Advanced model size reduction using CADfix

Increasingly, product designers and engineers are turning to virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) to visualize their product designs. Traditional 3D CAD BREP geometry with its inherent details is often unsuitable for VR and similar systems requiring light-weight model representations for fast animation and manipulation.

To resolve this issue, CADfix 12 now supports the export of light-weight faceted model representations to FBX, OBJ, XGL, and ZGL formats with the ability to export assemblies, colors, transparency, vertex normals for smooth shading and level of detail options to control the facet. the exported model. This allows users to produce compact but detailed model representations which are perfectly suited to the VR / AR environment.
