Learn how to convert SpaceClaim to DAE with CAD Exchanger
SpaceClaim is a solid modeling CAD application that runs on Microsoft Windows. It is developed by SpaceClaim Corporation, but now owned by ANSYS.
SpaceClaim’s 3D direct modeling technology is expressed by the following tools: pull, move, fill, and combine.
Pull contains most creation features which can be found in traditional CAD systems. For instance, using the Pull tool on a face by default offsets the face, but using the Pull tool on an edge rounds it.
Move relocates components and geometry, and can also be used to create patterns (often called arrays).
Fill primarily removes geometry from a part by extending geometry to fill in the surrounding area. It is commonly used for deleting rounds and holes from a model.
Combine merges parts and subtracts parts from each other.
DAE is an interactive 3D file format used for exchanging digital assets between various 3D modeling systems and game engines.
The DAE format was created using COLLADA XML architecture, which is an open standard for transmitting digital assets between graphic applications, and now owned and developed by Khronos Group.
The following software can be used to view, alter, and process DAE: Bentley Systems MicroStation, Autodesk AutoCAD, Autodesk 3ds Max with the ColladaMax plugin, and Autodesk Maya with the ColladaMaya plugin.
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
