Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
PLANO, Texas, May 5, 2011 - Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced the latest release of Parasolid® software, its PLM industry-leading 3D geometric modeling component. The enhancements in Parasolid Version 23.1 (V23.1) continue Siemens PLM Software’s emphasis on increasing productivity for the independent software developers (ISVs) creating applications based on Parasolid, and their end user customers.
“By listening to our ISV customers and diligently addressing their requirements, without ever losing sight of the needs of the end user, we have been able to maintain impressive growth and success for the family of solutions based on Parasolid,” said Joan Hirsch, vice president of Product Design Solutions, Siemens PLM Software. “Parasolid V23.1 maintains that approach with productivity improvements for application developers that include functional enhancements in the areas of CAE support, interoperability and modeling.”
Targeting the significant Parasolid computer-aided engineering (CAE) user community, Parasolid V23.1 includes new enhancements to its robust sheet modeling technology.
As the geometric modeling component – or kernel – of choice in many of the world’s leading CAD, CAM and CAE applications, Parasolid is often required to work with imported data from other systems that require various levels of geometry and topology repair. Parasolid V23.1 includes several new functions in this area.
Several enhancements have also been made to improve the productivity of developers integrating Parasolid into a new or existing application, including the two enhancements highlighted below.
Parasolid V23.1 also includes a large number of additional enhancements as well as significant extensions to the breadth and depth of functionality in the areas of blending, local operations and surfacing. Parasolid V23.1 is available immediately.
PLM Components are software tools that support innovation and promote interoperability in CAD, CAM, CAE and PLM applications. Siemens PLM Software develops these components, uses them throughout its own applications and licenses them to independent software vendors and end-user organizations. PLM Components include the Parasolid and D-Cubed™ software products, widely used technologies that provide 3D part and assembly modeling, editing and interoperability, 2D/3D parametric sketching, motion simulation, collision detection, clearance measurement and visualization functionality. Applications include mechanical CAD, CAM, CAE, mold design, sheet metal, AEC, GIS, structural, plant and ship design, CMM, reverse engineering and sales configuration.
