Cimskil's CAD Gateway
We import solid part models using the ISO STEP AP203 data exchange standard. This is without translation, interpretation or approximation.
This capability is used for:
- Individual part models, or assemblies, e.g., weldments.
- Stock, castings or forgings. (It is appropriate to note here that we maintain an internal record of intermediate part data between setups for work in process, but can also use imports of new intermediate part geometry for processing work in process.)
- Fixtures or fixture assemblies.
We have other import capabilities, not currently in the released product. Please contact us if you wish to discuss your particular requirements.
More important than our import capabilities is what we do with the data. You can see the next important stage on our Feature Recognition page.
