They can then immediately create a new YBC file for the bending machine and a new ParaSolid file
for the laser tube cutting machine.
The upgrade provides new Parasolid file
format support and includes a new bidirectional Autodesk Inventor interface.
Data translation now includes a high-speed one-pass Initial Graphics Exchange Specification translator and a Parasolid file
Users can now save custom dimensions for non-standard parts as Parasolid files
and add Parasolid components that they have modelled themselves, or that they have downloaded, to custom catalogues.
Jamieson et al(1995) have developed the direct slicing approach for Parasolid files
and the sliced data is converted in to CLI, HPGL, SLC formats.
