The release of Siemens Digital Industries Software’s Parasolid open software technology for geometric modeling is said to enable the solving of the most difficult technical challenges and improves upon 3D printing and scanning-based workflow with new tools for Convergent Modeling and lattice structures.
According to Siemens, the advances in Convergent Modeling provide engineers greater efficiency in workflows that need to mix facet and B-rep geometry. Further, the support of lattice structures—repeating networks of nodes and beams that offers increased strength-to-weight ratio while maintaining the required structural integrity—enables engineers to design parts with reduced material requirements and mass. Further, the functionality gives 3D printing a new level of accessibility and improved performance benefits.
