iSEEK said it has expanded its CADSEEK platform with Polaris that enhances core shape algorithms for greater accuracy and speed, and extends the technology to hunt down similar individual parts from an assembly.
iSEEK said it has delivered CADSEEK Polaris to Deere & Co.
These groups or datasets can be superimposed in the Navigator to show part distribution, iSEEK said.
With this browser, users will be able to search, browse, download and upload components via an iSEEK hosted catalog at the corporate website.
Don Flugrad, iSEEK senior vice president and COO said, "a customer will be able to conduct a shape search over their internal CAD databases, search their 2-D data and documents and search the web all from one browser-based interface."
CADSeek from iSEEK and Geolus Search from UGS (Plano, TX; www.ugs.com), and other shape search products do for parts what Google does with text: They find and display parts similar to the initial inquiry.
The shape code for each shape is "nothing but a tag," explains Don Flugrad, senior vice president and COO of iSEEK. "Once you retrieve it, you can then pull out all other related information, including production information." Production and other metadata comes from the CAD design files.
According to iSEEK Corporation, a paper published around 1999 by the Parts Standardization and Management Committee of the U.S.
iSEEK said CADSEEK is designed to significantly streamline the design process for parts or assemblies.
As a result, CADSEEK's shape coding is extremely accurate, producing unparalleled search precision for parts and assemblies," said iSEEK cofounder and CADSEEK technology inventor Dr.
"Because CADSEEK eliminates part redundancies and therefore cost redundancies," said iSEEK Co-Founder and Senior Vice President and COO Dr.
