"By completing the STEP certification process, Alibre has demonstrated its commitment to supporting an ISO standard for digital product data exchange
," said Chuck Stark, program director for US PRO.
"GeometryQA will be instrumental in eliminating not only the problems of product data exchange
between multiple in-house CAD systems or suppliers, but also reduce the associated expense that poor geometry quality adds to product development costs."
American National Standard, Product Data Exchange
Using STEP (PDES) Part 1.
What many foundrymen are discovering is that several organizations are trying to establish a product data exchange
standard for transfer of electronic data between CAD programs.
Many users are looking to an emerging data-communication standard called the Product Data Exchange
Specification (PDES) to make it easier to transfer engineering data between different applications and computers.
10 -- Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Global Engineering Services and Offshore Product Development (OPD) solutions and technologies, and PROSTEP AG, a leading solution provider for PLM integration, product data exchange
and migration, have entered into a strategic partnership to better support PROSTEP's customers in the Asia Pacific region.
Theorem Solutions, a CAD/CAM product data exchange
company, has extended the functionality of its recently-announced Revision 8 CADverter range.
The result is STEP (Standard for Product Data Exchange
), a data standard created, maintained, and extended by a team of more than 200 product data experts for the past 15 years.
The so-called Product Data eXchange
(or PDX) suite of specifications was developed by the Virtual Factory Information Interchange Project (VEIIP), an effort organized by the National Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (NEMI) and led by NIST and two private companies.
and worldwide users have recognized this need and developed a number of specifications, such as IGES (initial graphics exchange specification), PDES (product data exchange
using step), STEP (standard for exchange of product) and DMIS (dimensional measurement interface specification), to address the problem.
ISO is developing the next generation of IGES in the form of the Product Data Exchange
