3D geometry healing technology added to the Altair Partner Alliance

Altair and Elysium Co. Ltd. today announced that Elysium has joined the Altair Partner Alliance (APA), adding its 3D geometry healing and translation software CADdoctor. CADdoctor understands multiple Computer Aided Design (CAD) formats and Product Data Quality (PDQ) criteria to easily translate and repair data as well as simplify geometry to reduce file size for more efficient Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) analysis.

CADdoctor is equipped with a standalone user interface, which applies the built-in geometry healing module, Data Exchange Kernel (DEK). DEK can understand the characteristics, representations, tolerances, etc. of various CAD systems to guarantee an accurate translation to support the data preprocess for CAE analysis.

“Elysium could not be more pleased to join the Altair Partner Alliance. This will expand the CADdoctor market, specifically to those hoping to re-use 3D CAD data from designing for their CAE analysis.” said Kentaro Fukuta, General Manager of the Global Business team at Elysium. “CADdoctor, an industry-proven application for 3D data translation and optimization, will strongly support Altair customers in the time reduction of the preparation for CAE analysis. By removing complex and detailed features such as holes and fillets, enveloping huge assembly models, and generating mid-surfaces, CADdoctor will reduce the overall time for analysis, increase the success rate and accuracy of CAE analysis, and more.”

In addition to data translation, CADdoctor includes powerful modules for cleaning up messy geometry. Users can check PDQ criteria against industry or customer-specific standards. The technology can automatically and interactively detect and repair errors, generate mid-surfaces from detailed solid models, repair and optimize polygon data. It can also equalize the polygon elements without sacrificing the geometry outline and compare CAD files before and after engineering changes, translations, etc. with a visual color map accompanied by the necessary numerical values.

“CADdoctor is a great addition to the Altair offering,” said James Dagg, Chief Technology Officer of Modeling and Visualization at Altair. “Its impressive geometry modification and cleanup capabilities complement Altair products like HyperMesh and Inspire, and we are very excited for our customers to benefit from these tools.”

CADdoctor is extremely versatile, with applications in any industry taking advantage of CAD/CAE software to optimize and evaluate designs before production.
