Parasolid V25.0 Delivers Broad Set of Customer-Driven Enhancements to Boost Productivity

New Version of Siemens PLM Software’s Industry-Leading 3D Modeling Kernel Delivers Enhanced Performance and Capabilities Supporting Surfacing and Visualization

PLANO, Texas, December 4, 2012 - Siemens PLM Software, today announced the latest release of Parasolid® software, its industry-leading 3D geometric modeling component for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE) as well as architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) applications. Parasolid version 25.0 delivers a broad set of customer-driven enhancements with particular emphasis on surfacing, visualization and performance.

“Parasolid delivers high quality solutions to meet the technical challenges presented by our diverse user-base of world-class application developers,” said Paul Sicking, senior vice president, Chief Technology Office, Siemens PLM Software. “This latest release of Parasolid delivers an impressive set of enhancements that enable application developers to further automate workflows in order to boost end user productivity.”

Parasolid version 25.0 includes enhancements in a wide variety of areas with a special focus on surface and curve modeling as well as performance optimization.

  • Surface Modeling – includes enhancements that provide end-users fine control of surface modeling. For example, when repairing a hole in geometry that is often present in imported models, it is now possible to provide additional data to act as a framework structure for the repairing surface. Also, sweep operations through multiple profiles can be clamped to smoothly meet faces adjacent to the profiles.
  • Curve Modeling – includes new functionality to provide fine control when manipulating curves. A single smooth continuous curve can now be created from a chain of smoothly-connected edges and one or more curves may be projected onto a surface along the surface normal or along a user supplied vector.
  • Performance optimization – enhancements were made to improve established algorithms in functionality such as Booleans and ray-fire to address new workflows in CAE applications. This has been achieved with no compromise to the performance of the more sophisticated operations in these areas.

These broad enhancements are in addition to numerous highly-specialized improvements targeted at specific industries and workflows. For more information please visit
