SOUTHFIELD, MI, Oct 31, 2017 – The German-French software manufacturer CoreTechnologie (CT) has significantly enhanced its software 3D Evolution to provide unsurpassed IP protection of 3D CAD data. In this digital age and era of continuous connectivity, valuable intellectual property is in danger of falling into the wrong hands. CT’s solution delivers peace of mind by ensuring that a collaborative exchange of 3D data can happen with a decreased risk of intellectual property or design intent being unintentionally shared. 3D Evolution’s Simplify module, has automated algorithms that can rapidly remove internal parts of geometry without losing any external features or surfaces while maintaining a solid model. In addition, assemblies can be flattened into a single multi-body part thus eliminating the part names. Integrating custom geometry manipulation tools developed by CT directly into the existing Teamcenter or other PLM architecture allows for secure processing of heavy data without the need for extracting data to a local or shared drive.
3D Evolution utilizes a standard toolset for user interaction, thus a seamless and consistent output of packaging models can be achieved. Reference data is useful to users whom either don’t require the detail or are outside the inner circle of intellectual property. The prolific usage of detailed modeling data in downstream applications is clear, but perhaps more ambiguous is how to efficiently prepare reference models for widespread consumption. Today’s top product development companies understand the CAD models produced are not only an integral part of their products, but differentiate them from their competition. This data is the backbone of the product development process and is heavily used in developing new designs and collaborating on current designs with suppliers. The protection of this data is critical to continued exclusivity in the market.
CT continues to prove out this technology with customers in the space exploration, aerospace, general machinery and automotive sectors. Over and above the benefits of IP protection, CT’s customers have successfully used the module to significantly reduce file size by as much as 80% for packaging, market-ready geometry and in plant layout applications, just to name a few. The include or exclude functions allow for the definition of specific areas in the model for example: mounting brackets. The emboss selection permits for the removal of the details, however leaving an emboss showing a dent where a hole or a part was removed.
By combining systematic principles of optimization and the CAD manipulation capabilities of 3D Evolution, a truly robust solution for the protection of IP can be achieved.
