A Superior 3D Geometric Modeler

Delivering both accuracy and robustness, Parasolid is the world’s leading solid modeling component and is trusted in over 350 applications from CAD, CAM, CAE, to AEC including, NX®, Solid Edge®, SOLIDWORKS®, Delcam®, and hundreds of other leading engineering applications. Parasolid also features Convergent Modeling merging classic boundary representation (B-Rep) and facet model operations in a single geometric modeling component.

Parasolid & HOOPS

The Parasolid SDK is tightly integrated with many Tech Soft 3D products including HOOPS Exchange, HOOPS Visualize, and can be licensed on its own or together with these additional toolkits for 3D data access and 3D desktop visualization to offer a complete platform of cooperative engineering software components for your application development.

Parasolid In Action

Discover how Parasolid and HOOPS Exchange work together to provide an ideal platform for:

  • 3D modeling with both B-Rep and facet data

  • Flawless import of B-rep data from Parasolid-based applications

  • Translation & automatic healing of many proprietary and standard formats into valid Parasolid models

  • Accessing data beyond B-Rep — including assembly, semantic PMI, and metadata
