PLANO, TX, Oct 20, 2011 – 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, today announced the latest release of Parasolid software, its industry-leading 3D geometric modeling component for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE) as well as architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) applications.
Parasolid version 24.0 (V24) delivers a set of enhancements with an emphasis on adding advanced and intelligent techniques to enable success when performing long sequences of complex modeling operations. These sequences are often initiated from simple end-user commands in engineering workflows. When dealing with intricate 3D models, a single command may initiate hundreds of complex blending operations and local edit operations that the end-user may not be aware of. Typical examples could include removing all blends from an engine block before CAE analysis, or adjusting draft angles on a casting to optimize manufacturing.
