Anark Corp. (Boulder, CO) has developed the Anark Core™ Platform—an innovative software platform for the rapid transformation and distribution of use-appropriate CAD data throughout the enterprise supply chain and support organizations. Unlike traditional CAD authoring tools and translation products, this software’s sophisticated automation system empowers users with a highly efficient, easily repeatable process for transforming and delivering IP-protected CAD geometry. This is performed through the software’s “recipe-based” transformation process that allows users to reapply a set of user-defined transformation operations—thereby eliminating the need to manually rework product data as it evolves or as requirements change. This software’s CAD transformation capabilities permit users to produce both high-precision (B-reps) and lightweight (mesh) product geometry for use in a variety of upstream and downstream applications including: OEM-supplier data exchange, product aftermarket support, technical publications and interactive catalogs, product visualization and training, and sales and marketing communication. The software consists of two main components that can be configured to match organizational needs: the workstation, an easy-to-use authoring tool that allows users to cost-effectively produce transformed, use-appropriate CAD geometry for supply chain and support applications throughout the enterprise; and the server, a scalable server system for high volume, repeated applications that allows manufacturers to automate the cost-effective transformation and delivery of use-appropriate CAD geometry throughout the enterprise, supply chain and support organizations.
