The Fastest and Most Accurate CAD Data Translation Toolkit
HOOPS Exchange, the leading CAD translation software development kit (SDK), delivers access to over 20 CAD file formats through a single interface. Access a broad range of data including boundary representation (BREP), product manufacturing information (PMI), model tree, views, persistent IDs, styles, construction geometry, visualization and more without depending on any CAD system.
Faster, More Reliable 3D CAD Data Access
HOOPS Exchange provides all the integration controls a development team requires to easily build robust CAD data translation into an application. Supported CAD formats include CATIA, SolidWorks, Inventor, Creo, NX, SolidEdge and many more. We benchmarked the competition and built a significantly faster and more reliable SDK for CAD data reuse.
Siemens Parasolid Integration
Parasolid users, you're in luck. HOOPS Exchange is the fastest and most accurate CAD translator solution for Parasolid users. Tech Soft 3D partnered with Siemens to optimize the integration of HOOPS Exchange and Parasolid for CAD data exchange. Watch the HOOPS Exchange and Parasolid integration webinar to learn more:
Benefits of this partnership include:
- Easy to use: Read CAD models into your active Parasolid session with a single API
- No translation if source format is XT-based
- Fast, high quality CAD import and export and access to PMI, GD&T, feature tree and more.
- Broad platform support: Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS and Android*
- Loading times now 3 to 4 times faster with new multi-core support
- Post-processing and healing with Parasolid
- Non-Parasolid data is massaged to adapt to the geometric model of Parasolid
(with HOOPS Exchange, Parasolid and Bodyshop)
- Fix geometric and topological inconsistencies in CAD data import
- Stitch surfaces and tighten gaps
- Simplify surfaces to cylinders, planes, tori, cones and spheres
- Retain persistent IDs from CAD system
