Siemens PLM Software Delivers Parasolid Version 19.1

Siemens PLM Software announced the availability of Parasolid® Version 19.1 (V19.1) software, the latest release of its PLM geometric modeling component software.

The emphasis in this latest release of Parasolid is firmly on providing support for sophisticated workflow operations where greatest productivity gains can be realized in complex design and manufacturing processes. Modeling enhancements across a broad range of functional areas reflect the demands of a global community who develop innovative applications based on Parasolid. Representative enhancements include:

•  A new ability to perform hollow operations on a selected portion of a model which gives applications greater flexibility and speed especially when editing large, complex models,

•  The ability to generate a surface from a sparse set of points and normal vectors providing a fast and powerful design tool especially in the context of existing geometry,

•  New functionality for the automatic detection and repair of self intersecting geometry which permits sophisticated sequences of operations to be completed without intervention from the application or end-user, resulting in high integrity models produced in significantly less time.

In addition, Parasolid V19.1 is the first release to support Apple’s 64-bit Mac OS X Leopard, leveraging the power of 64-bit technology to increase the productivity of the creative process.

"As the developer and supplier of the world’s leading and most respected 3D component modeling software, we feel an obligation to our customers to continue to set the standards for quality and functionality in the industry,” said Bruce Feldt, vice president, Open Tools for Siemens PLM Software.” Parasolid V19.1 continues to push forward the capabilities of solid modeling in order to support applications that enable engineers and designers to express their design intent and creativity through intuitive processes.”
