New Server Licensing Option Enables Re-Use of CAD Data and 3D PDF Publishing in Cloud-Based Applications and Services
Today, Tech Soft 3D rounds out its cloud and mobile suite with the announcement of HOOPS Exchange 7.0 and HOOPS Publish 7.0. These releases enable engineering software developers to accurately translate CAD data quickly (HOOPS Exchange) or export 3D PDFs (HOOPS Publish), in either desktop or cloud environments.
“We hear again and again the need to quickly access data,” says German Nikol, Director of Visualization Technologies at Kisters. “Tech Soft 3D allows us to deliver on that expectation by providing the fast, reliable underlying technology with HOOPS Exchange and HOOPS Publish that allows our customers to experience their data in the way that best fits their needs.”
New features and updates in HOOPS Exchange 7.0 include:
- Deep Model Interrogation: Developers will benefit from new APIs that build on the ability to query the length, surface and volume of geometries. These APIs can also perform an exact section of a model and a geometry compare between two revisions of the same model. In many application types, this ability to deeply interrogate geometry removes the need for an extra translation step into a modeling kernel.
- Comprehensive File Conversion: Users can access data from even the most recent releases of the leading CAD systems including the latest versions of SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Parasolid and the AP242 edition of STEP.
