January 30, 2020 - The German-French software company CoreTechnologie GmbH (CT) has added another feature to the 3D_Evolution Simplifier software: the latest version of the Simplifier now allows for a fully automatic calculation of the smallest sphere diameter that surrounds a part or an assembly. With the function, additional to the generation of a reduced envelope geometry models the Simplifier enables an automated calculation of the packaging.
In addition to the diameter calculation according to DIN EN ISO 8062-1, minimal packaging dimensions can be calculated in the form of a box and output as a CAD model of any major format. The determination of the smallest possible packaging dimensions, i.e. the smallest possible space, is used, for example, to optimize logistics costs and to minimize the cost of materials for packaging individual parts or assemblies with a very complex shape.
The 3D_Evolution Simplifier software is used by companies for automatic data simplification as well as for the conversion of CAD models of all common formats such as Catia, NX, Solidworks, Creo, Inventor, Step, JT and many more. The creation of an envelope geometry is the solution to work with extensive 3D original data in CAD, VR and simulation systems. In terms of data quality, the tool enables the conversion of solid models through data analysis and correction functions. In addition to protecting the know-how by creating the envelope models, the technology at the same time also reduces the file size as well as the elements that have to be displayed.
