Boulder, Colo. - Anark Corporation has announced the latest release of the Anark Core Platform.
Anark Core 1.1 provides several enhancements to the company's automated CAD data transformation software system, including direct support for three 3D data-exchange and visualization formats: VRML, X3D, and Autodesk DWFT.
VRML and X3D are recognized by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as open 3D graphics formats for a wide array of data exchange and visualization applications. The Autodesk DWF format was added to allow users to easily export transformed 3D CAD data from Anark Core for use within Autodesk Design Review and Freewheel.
Design Review is Autodesk's software to view, print, measure, mark up, and annotate 2D and 3D designs, and Freewheel is a free web service to view and share 2D and 3D designs. Anark Core 1.1 also includes significant memory-performance enhancements, enabling larger CAD assemblies and parts to be transformed within Anark Core Workstation and Anark Core Server. This will aid manufacturers seeking to transform product design data for exchange, collaboration, and visualization processes, including technical publications.
