Interoperability Issues Among CAD Systems: A Benchmarking Study On 7 Commercial MCAD Software

GERBINO, Salvatore;
2004

Abstract

In the actual design contest, where several very different expertise need to be integrated in the design process, the interoperability among the used computer-aided tools is a mandatory requirement. With respect to 7 MCAD software a quite complex model of an exhaust manifold has been created in each environment and translated to the other systems via IGES and STEP neutral files. The best practices have been adopted to improve translations, both by using internal repair tools or the manual ones. Thus, the authors analyze what healing tools are available and important to repair a CAD model, and how to use them, as well as how to prepare a model to ensure CAD interoperability and prevent failure in data exchange via neutral standard formats.
