Microstation is a CAD software platform for 2D and 3D design and drafting, created by Bentley Systems. Its geometric kernel is Parasolid. It is widely used in the architectural and engineering industries and allows generating 2D/3D vector graphics objects and elements and includes BIM features.
KOMPAS-3D is a flexible 3D modeling system that allows creating models by several methods, including the following ones:
Bottom-up modeling using finished components. Top-down modeling by designing components to match specific designs. Modeling based on layout drawings, such as kinematic diagrams. Or any combination of these modeling methods. These approaches allow creating editable associative models easily.
The KOMPAS-3D system has powerful functions for managing projects of thousands of sub-assemblies, parts, and standard library products. It supports all the capabilities of 3D solids and surface modeling that have become the standard among medium-level CAD/CAM programs.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
