Siemens PLM Convergent Modeling
Convergent ModelingTM technology provides a unified 3D modeling capability on combinations of facet and B-Rep data. These two data formats have different geometric characteristics and as a result, one format has often been better suited to a given application than the other. Facet data is characterized by triangular meshes which approximate surfaces and tend to generate larger data sets. Applications that use facet data include digital mock-up, gaming and animation. B-Rep data is characterized by mathematically defined surfaces that represent accurate, closed (solid) volumes using smaller data sets. Applications that use B-Rep data include 3D modeling for engineering and manufacturing.
A proliferation of facet data in high growth areas like 3D scanning, topology optimization and 3D printing means that design engineers often need to move facet data into 3D modeling systems that were designed for B-Rep data. Convergent Modeling Technology enables 3D product modeling on both data sources in a single environment, while eliminating the complexity, error and delay of converting between the two.
3D Scan to CAD
NX Cloud Connected-Scan to Part comes as a cloud application and allows you to combine facets, surfaces, and solids in a single 3D model, without requiring data translation. The targeted features of NX Cloud Connected-Scan to Part enable you to focus on your Scan to CAD workflows.
