August 1, 2010

ModuleWorks, a leading supplier of CAD/CAM components for 3-5-Axis toolpath generation and simulation, and 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, confirmed an agreement that will simplify and accelerate mutual customer integration of the ModuleWorks software components with Siemens PLM Software’s Parasolid® software.

By utilizing the ModuleWorks Bridge for Parasolid, ModuleWorks partners will be able to develop applications to directly read models from Parasolid, the world’s premier 3D geometric modeling kernel technology.

The ModuleWorks Bridge for Parasolid allows client applications to read and query solid model topology and geometry and tessellate the model for toolpath generation and simulation without the need for translation or conversion to any other formats.

Product development on the bridge is now complete and it is available to licensees of Parasolid as part of the ModuleWorks 2010.6 component software release.

Technical Director, Dr David Plater comments, “We have many customers who use both ModuleWorks and Parasolid in their products. By offering the Parasolid bridge technology, we are able to provide an easy integration with Parasolid geometry without the need for any translation or secondary layers.”
