Siemens’ Parasolid Introduces Convergent Modeling on Mixed Models

Convergent Modeling can restore precise, classic mating surfaces to a model that has undergone facet-based topology optimization.

The latest version of Parasolid software is now available from Siemens Digital Industries Software. The updates to Parasolid include enhancements to Convergent Modeling technology, which can now operate on models containing a mix of facet B-rep surfaces and classic B-rep surfaces, helping to enable more efficient workflows in a wide range of applications. For example, in generative design, where new products are autonomously developed to satisfy design constraints, Convergent Modeling can restore precise, classic mating surfaces to a model that has undergone facet-based topology optimization. In reverse engineering processes, the new technology can be used to add precise analytic surfaces to scanned data of parts for remanufacture.

The Parasolid geometric modeling kernel is used in Siemens’ own Solid Edge software and NX software and is at the core of the Xcelerator portfolio’s open and flexible ecosystem. Parasolid is also used by over 350 other products including many CAD/CAM/CAE/AEC software applications.
