Spatial Corp, a premier provider of software development toolkits for design, manufacturing, and engineering sectors, and a subsidiary of Dassault Systemes (Euronext Paris: DSY), has announced the alpha release of its latest product, Data Prep. This new add-on for 3D InterOp is designed to enhance the preparation of imported CAD data for downstream workflows, leveraging Spatial's extensive expertise in geometry and the robust capabilities of 3D modelers.

Data Prep addresses the critical phase of preparing CAD data for use in various applications across Manufacturing, Simulation, Robotics, Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC), among other fields. As CAD models grow in size and complexity, and as the data within these files expands to encompass a broader range of disciplines, the challenge of managing this volume of information intensifies. Data Prep aims to streamline this process by pre-processing and simplifying imported data to suit specific application needs, a step that is pivotal for the success and efficiency of downstream operations.

By offering a solution that focuses on simplification, optimization, and repair of CAD models, Data Prep targets three essential needs within the CAD data preparation workflow. The product implements strategies such as filtering out small bodies from a model, eliminating minor holes and fillets, and generating assembly structures from parts with duplicate bodies. These strategies are designed to enhance the usability of CAD data without necessitating manual edits by the end users, ensuring a more seamless integration into their workflows.

This initiative by Spatial to introduce Data Prep underscores the company's commitment to facilitating the integration of CAD data preparation capabilities directly into the import process. Application developers, in particular, stand to benefit significantly, as they can now incorporate these advanced data preparation features effortlessly into their solutions, thereby augmenting the performance and success of downstream applications.

As the industry continues to evolve, with increasing demands for more sophisticated and detailed CAD models, tools like Data Prep are becoming indispensable. They not only address the immediate challenges posed by the volume and complexity of CAD data but also pave the way for more innovative and efficient workflows in design, engineering, and manufacturing processes.

In conclusion, Spatial Corp's introduction of Data Prep represents a notable advancement in the field of CAD data management. By providing a tool that simplifies, optimizes, and repairs CAD models for downstream applications, Spatial continues to lead the way in developing solutions that meet the growing demands of the industry.

Researchers demonstrate rapid 3D printing with liquid metal
Boston MA (SPX) Jan 26, 2024
MIT researchers have developed an additive manufacturing technique that can print rapidly with liquid metal, producing large-scale parts like table legs and chair frames in a matter of minutes. Their technique, called liquid metal printing (LMP), involves depositing molten aluminum along a predefined path into a bed of tiny glass beads. The aluminum quickly hardens into a 3D structure. The researchers say LMP is at least 10 times faster than a comparable metal additive manufacturing process, and t ... read more
