CAD Import Module Updates
For users of the CAD Import Module, version 6.1 provides improved import functionality and the ability to simplify curves and surfaces in imported geometry. Learn more below.
Simplifying Curves and Surfaces
The Import settings for 3D CAD files now include a Simplify curves and surfaces option that can be used to simplify the mathematical representation of the imported geometric entities. For example, spline curves can be converted to dedicated straight or circular curves. Importing objects with this option can improve the performance and reliability of downstream geometric operations.
Updated CAD File Import
The CAD file import functionality has been extended to support the most recent versions of the supported file formats. To see a current list of supported CAD file formats, please refer to the Read from File section of the CAD specification chart.
