Siemens’ Parasolid introduces Convergent Modeling on mixed models

The latest version of Parasolid® software is now available from Siemens Digital Industries Software. The updates to Parasolid include enhancements to Convergent Modeling™ technology, which can now operate on models containing a mix of facet B-rep surfaces and classic B-rep surfaces, helping to enable more efficient work flows in a wide range of applications. For example, in generative design, where new products are autonomously developed to satisfy design constraints, Convergent Modeling can restore precise, classic mating surfaces to a model that has undergone facet-based topology optimization. In reverse engineering processes, the new technology can be used to add precise analytic surfaces to scanned data of parts for re-manufacture.

The Parasolid geometric modelling kernel is used in Siemens’ own Solid Edge® software and NX™ software and is at the core of the Xcelerator portfolio’s open and flexible ecosystem. Parasolid is also used by over 350 other products including many world-leading CAD/CAM/CAE/AEC software applications.
