Siemens PLM Software has announced a new version of its Parasolid software — a PLM 3D geometric modeling component.
Parasolid Version 23.0 (V23) is said to deliver a wide variety of enhancements which reflect Siemens PLM Software’s commitment to improving complex processes throughout the entire product development process.
Parasolid has extended its support for multi-core processor hardware to enable applications based on Parasolid to take full advantage of their significant performance advantage over single-core processors.
Parasolid V23 is now fully thread-safe, enabling applications to have several threads running on different processors, with each calling any Parasolid function simultaneously.
A new face deformation operation enables sophisticated shape changes to digital models based on either design requirements or simulations of shape changes that occur due to real-world situations such as deflection under load or distortion during temperature cycles.
In addition, in response to the needs of product designers who need to create and modify complex geometry with maximum productivity and flexibility, Parasolid V23 is said to offer more sophisticated blending techniques and controls that extend the software’s already impressive range of blending capabilities into the domain of complex modeling.
