The professional translation system for CAD migration

Picture by Elysium

Today, major CAD systems include translators for the import and export of native formats from other CAD vendors. A main disadvantage still is, that only the b-rep representation of these formats may be processed. Features, assembly relations, associated drawings and non-graphic attributes are usually lost.

B-rep representation of CAD data might be useful, because it can be highly accurate, but if design changes are required while preserving the original engineering intent, the b-rep data structure is not sufficient. For companies it is very important to preserve the design intent, when migrating data to a new CAD system or collaborate with partners, suppliers and customers on a global scale.

Elysium’s CADfeature is a high-quality, efficient, and automated feature-based translation system that offers complete design-intent transfer with the scalability to address the needs of individual designers or globe-spanning enterprises.
