Intergraph Smart 3D, the most advanced plant design software offered in two decades, is Intergraph’s next generation, data-centric, rule-driven solution for streamlining engineering design processes while preserving existing data and making it more usable/re-usable. A fundamental component of Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise, Smart 3D is a complementary, full-suite solution that provides all the capabilities needed to design a plant, and then keep it as built throughout its life cycle.
Parasolid file format is native for Parasolid geometrical kernel. Today it is widely used in a range of applications, including SolidWorks, SolidEdge, NX, Microstation, Ansys, Abaqus and others. Parasolid has two primary file extensions: .x_t, which is text based, and .x_b – binary-based format. Parasolid is also used to provide precise geometrical definitions of parts in JT files (as XT B-Rep data segments).
CAD Exchanger can read files compliant with the entire range of Parasolid file format (schema) starting from v0.15 and up to version 32 (as of time of writing this page). Likewise, CAD Exchanger writes file compliant with all Parasolid schemas.
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
