Kubotek3D, developer of 3D mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) software, announces that the Kubotek Kosmos 3D framework has been updated to version 2.0. The Kubotek Kosmos framework is a set of advanced, multi-platform C/C++ software components, which maximize a program’s performance and ability to work with complete engineering models and data from all major MCAD databases. The product supports software developers building precise 3D applications that need to work with engineering models and data.
“For the 2.0 release Kubotek Kosmos has been significantly repackaged to better support two distinct groups of developers. The first group only needs to read precise engineering data and the second group also needs editing or geometry creation,” says Ram Eswaran, chief technical officer of Kubotek3D.
Kubotek Kosmos 3D framework 2.0 also sees performance improvements in generating intersection slice profiles between a model and a series of parallel planes. This slicing function, of special interest to users because of its need in additive manufacturing, is an application in which Kubotek Kosmos performance stands out from other modelers due to its unique un-constricted support for multi-threaded processing.
Additional 2.0 Enhancements
- Feature recognition detects additional and more complex types;
- full semantic support for PMI tolerance symbols;
- automated merging of redundant faces/edges improved;
- application programming interface integration with Datakit direct CAD readers;
- licensing and trial system replaced for improved customer support;
- faceting performance;
- improvements to surface covering with primitive surfaces;
- polygon selection performance and support for references; and
- improvements to quality and performance of file readers.
