FARMINGTON HILLS, MI, Feb 20, 2018 – CCE, a leading provider of advanced interoperability technology, announced an update to Oceans SDK (OSDK), a first-of-its-kind technology for 3D CAD integration in enterprise applications. OSDK provides access to native product information stored in files of all major 3D CAD formats, via a unified API architecture, and without the need for a CAD license.
In the first major release of 2018, OSDK has been enhanced to support all the latest CAD versions from formats like CATIA V5, CATIA V6 (3DXML), SOLIDWORKS, NX, Inventor, Creo, Solid Edge and JT. OSDK was also enhanced to provide “edit” capabilities for file properties to help propagate changes done on the enterprise application side, back to CAD, thereby updating the source CAD data and repairing broken file references. Edit capabilities are currently available for CATIA V5, SOLIDWORKS and NX formats.
OSDK is the outcome of fifty man-years of complex interop software development based on CCE’s well-known ODX libraries that provide native access to major CAD systems, and is currently used by leading Independent Software Vendors for their CAD-independent viewers and translators.
“Today’s globally competitive marketplace demands manufacturing companies deal with complex products and shrinking development times. This creates the need for a synchronized workflow from design and engineering through manufacturing and delivery. Real-time visibility is critical to making time-sensitive decisions on procurement from the extended supply chain. Tools like Oceans SDK that help reduce complexity and cost when interfacing with multiple CAD formats provide a significant competitive advantage for enterprise application providers and help them win new business and grow profitably,” says CCE’s VP sales & marketing, Vinay Wagle.
OSDK provides an easy, plug-and-play solution to all such enterprise application providers, thereby providing them with a significant edge over competition. OSDK’s single API for all the CAD formats makes the integration development very simple and keeps the maintenance costs low. OSDK can also be used to develop lightweight browser-based CAD interfaces for ERP/PDM/PLM systems in addition to desktop-based integrations.
