TopSolid is a completely integrated CAD/CAM software which was created by the French company Missler Software. It is based on the geometric kernel ParaSolid. As it is fully integrated, it allows users to design and manufacture parts using the same software. There is a wide range of Topsolid industry solutions: from the more general, mechanically oriented (TopSolid’Design) to specific solutions.
Actually, there is a whole line of CAM products: mechanical machining (TopSolid’Cam), sheet metal (TopSolid’Sheetmetal), wood (TopSolid’WoodCam), wire electroerosion (TopSolid’Wire). TopSolid also incorporates additional modules: a 2D draft module (TopSolid’Draft) and a structural computation one (TopSolid’Fea).
TopSolid'Cam, one of the main products of Topsolid, manages multi axis machining such as 5 axis machining, mill turn operations, twin Spindle and twin turret technology.
TopSolid 7 is claimed to simplify the design and modification of large assemblies in an organized and structured environment.
SIMULIA is a CAE suite built on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform by Dassault Systèmes and used to create realistic simulations.
SIMULIA tools deliver various types of computational simulations (electromagnetic, computer fluid dynamic, multibody dynamic analysis, structural analysis) and capabilities to increase their efficiency (standard processes automation, logical and physical models integration, collaboration and sharing).
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
In the 3rd and 4th parts of the series, we will talk about surface display modes in 3D CAD programs, starting with the shading mode.Read more
We continue to execute our mission to improve the import of massive 3D models. In 3.16 users will notice enhancements in both desktop and web visualization, as well as the extension of the support of the native file formats.Read more
