Provider of advanced CAD interoperability technology, CCE, has announced the latest update of its flagship CAD viewer and translator software, EnSuite focused primarily on tools to help reverse engineering and rapid prototyping, which are key components of most competitive benchmarking projects.
EnSuite has the ability to import point cloud data that is generated by most 3D scanning equipment used to digitise physical parts. Once imported, EnSuite’s enhanced Model Compare tool can be used to compare not only fully rendered CAD models, but also CAD model with point cloud data. The results can be viewed and compared visually to understand any possible differences between the scanned part and the control subject (original design). Besides visual verification and inspection, the results can also be exported to an Excel file.
Tools for computing surface area, bounding volume and 3D measurements for Point Cloud and STL files have also been enhanced.
Debankan Chattopadhyay, CCE’s Manager of Business Development, stated: “EnSuite’s latest release focuses on our customer base that uses our software for reasons outside of just simple multi-CAD viewing or translation capabilities, which in itself are solid reasons. But for people who live and breathe in the world of reverse engineering, rapid prototyping and competitive benchmarking, the ability to ensure that a digital scan of a physical part matches with the CAD model within specified tolerances and being able to analyse and export that data for downstream applications is very critical.”
All existing EnSuite customers have immediate access to this new update.
