Boulder, Colo. - Anark Corp. has released Anark Core 2.0, its automated 3D CAD transformation platform with expanded conversion, transformation, and automation capabilities. It is designed to help users prepare 3D product design data for visualization, simulation, CAE, and supply-chain-data-exchange applications.
The Anark Core platform transforms native 3D CAD data for use throughout manufacturing design, engineering, and support organizations. Unlike conventional CAD tools and translators, Anark Core enables users to automate the modification of 3D product structure and geometry, and export revised product data into high-precision B-rep and lightweight mesh formats.
Its features include:
Drag-and-drop editing of product structure to facilitate the creation of multiple product representations from original assembly data, such as vendor specific BOMs, or visualization and simulation-ready hierarchies
The ability to quickly and easily remove B-rep face geometry to produce inner- and outer-mold-line representations for visualization, simulation, and OEM-supplier data exchange
New Core CAD Transformer Service enables PDM servers to automate Anark Core Server for change-list-driven transformation of CAD geometry
Import and convert visualization assemblies and geometry from CATIA V5 CATPRODUCT, CATPART, and CGR files into multiple lightweight mesh formats
Import and convert assemblies and B-rep geometry from SolidWorks and Inventor formats
Import and export B-rep geometry in ACIS SAT format
Anark Core 2.0 is now available for evaluation from the Anark Web site.
