Parasolid Customers

Parasolid is the world’s most widely used geometric modeling kernel with leading customers in all aspects of design, analysis and manufacturing software. Parasolid customers also include those in non-traditional PLM markets, such as architecture, engineering and construction (AEC).

Integrating Parasolid into an application immediately gives it 100% translation free interoperability with over 350 other applications from over 100 other independent software vendors (ISVs) and approximately 45% of all 3D CAD models worldwide that are stored in Parasolid XT format. The extensive use of Parasolid has also created a large community of knowledgeable users. Below, you will find more information on typical customers and their use of Parasolid.

CAD and AEC

Parasolid Customers - CAD and AEC

Computer aided design (CAD) is Parasolid's original market and is used extensively to create the complex geometry required by today's consumer and industrial products. Parasolid is used by a variety of design applications that require modeling the complex geometry of a part in the first instance then allows subsequent modification through numerous design iterations and reuses.

After a part is designed in a Parasolid-based CAD application, it can be transferred without translation to computer aided manufacturing (CAM) software to generate CNC instructions or tooling design. The simplest use is to read in a Parasolid XT file as “read-only” data for generating a tool path.

CAE and Analysis

Parasolid Customers - CAE and Analysis

After a part is designed in a Parasolid-based CAD application, it can be transferred without translation to computer aided engineering (CAE) software for analysis. The simplest use is to read in a Parasolid XT file as “read-only” data to create a finite element analysis (FEA) mesh. Although CAE is synonymous with FEA to many people, there is a vast array of analysis techniques based on CAD models (such as vibration, acoustic and electromagnetic analysis).

Parasolid is the perfect tool for in-house applications that capture specific expertise in a specialist domain relating to geometry and modeling. For example, aerospace companies typically have in-house systems to model and analyze the aerodynamic performance of wing designs. Similarly, tire companies have in-house systems to analyze vibration and water dispersal behavior of tread patterns.
