TransMagic 64-Bit shatters the limits to large CAD file translation

TransMagic, Inc., developer of 3D CAD data exchange products announced the first release of a true 64-bit version of their flagship product, TransMagic EXPERT. Translating large 3D design files is a memory-intensive operation that has been very challenging, primarily due to system memory restrictions. TransMagic 64-Bit permanently changes the landscape for large CAD file translation by solving this common manufacturing problem. TransMagic reports that the new platform offers 10-20% better performance and a tremendous increase in file size capability. Translating multi-gigabyte files on a single computer is now a reality, with TransMagic 64-Bit.

The new TransMagic 64-Bit release renders the 3GB memory limit of 32-bit applications obsolete for the purpose of translating large files. The ability to efficiently reuse design data in any application offers tremendous value and efficiency to manufacturing organizations. Companies that can easily leverage their design investments in downstream manufacturing or simulation applications will reduce their costs and have a competitive advantage. Medium size files can quickly exhaust memory resources on a traditional 32-bit computer. To translate a file in a standalone application the computer must simultaneously maintain both the source file and the target file in memory during the process until the translation is complete. This creates an upper limit on the file size capability of all 32-bit 3D translation products. With modern 64-bit applications like TransMagic, memory access and hence file size can be virtually unlimited.

"For some time we've been seeing complex assembly files larger than 1 gigabyte at automotive and aerospace companies,! " states Craig Dennis, CTO of TransMagic. "In the past there was no way to access enough memory to support the translation process for these large files. Being first to market with 64-bit means these limitations are now footnotes of a bygone era."
