Canada - Okino Computer Graphics is now shipping its rewritten Solid Edge CAD conversion
system, compatible with Solid Edge Synchronous
Technology modeling software. The conversion pipeline enables native Solid Edge
assembly, part, weldment, and sheet metal files to be converted to all
major animation and authoring packages, 3D downstream file formats, and
Okino's NuGraf and PolyTrans software imports crack-free geometry, hierarchy, and materials (assembly data) from native disk-based Solid Edge files or from a running copy of Solid Edge. It provides high-end rendering, viewing, and scene composition of the data, or have the data optimized and then pipelined into major 3D file formats, animation packages, and third-party/OEM integrations.
Solid Edge assemblies, parts, weldment, and sheet metal files can be directly imported into key animation systems, such as 3ds Max, Maya, Softimage|XSI, Cinema 4D, and LightWave, as well as any thidrd-party product which integrates Okino's PolyTrans 3D converters and all major downstream file formats ranging from COLLADA to DWF-3D to SketchUp and dozens more.
A resident copy of the Solid Edge software is not required, but having it installed on the same machine as the Okino conversion software will provide extended control and options over the process.
