CAD Data Transfer

Success depends on how well business partners collaborate and react to changes in design and process, regardless of their geographical location.

Whilst the fast, efficient sharing of product information is critical, poor data translation is the most publicised and costly problem in CAD data exchange.

translation problems can commonly be attributed to geometry, topology, model precision, feature recognition etc.

Depending upon the severity level of the errors encountered the only option available may be to re-create the data or the complete model.

Typical errors encountered:

  • Edges and faces having small gaps between them
  • Sliver faces having very thin aspect ratios; difficult to detect.
  • Duplicate vertices and edges etc etc.

Inadequately trained CAD Designers/Engineers can compound the problem. There is no substitution for investing in data exchange training for CAD users.

Here Cti can be called upon for expert advice and assistance in pinpointing errors and problems, by drawing upon many years experience of working on issues of CAD Interoperability.
