Parasolid v30.0 delivers enhancements to classic B-rep to enable application developers to deliver sophisticated functionality more effectively to their end-users. Facet B-rep enhancements cover modeling with facets and imported facet data repair in addition to architectural foundations to support fully integrated Convergent ModelingTM Technology in future releases where all Parasolid operations will support models containing arbitrary combinations of classic B-rep geometry and facet B-rep geometry.
Enhancements have been made to extend the range of complex modeling operations that can be performed on facet B-rep models. Facet related tools have also been provided for future workflows that will operate on models with an arbitrary mix of classic B-rep geometry and facet B-rep geometry. These enhancements include:
Deformation of Mesh Faces
Several enhancements have been added that are specific to working with mesh data including:
A trimmed surface (yellow) created from a mesh (red)
A number of enhancements have been added to give developers greater control and flexibility when performing complex classic B-rep modeling operations. These include:
Rotational transform: rotating a face (Blue) to either add material (Left) or remove material (Right)
Enhancements have been added to classic B-rep blending and Boolean operations to support the success of large sequences of operations such as automated workflows. These include:
Face blending two sheet bodies: old behaviour (left) return a notch solution and new behaviour (right) returns a trimmed solution.
