HOOPS Exchange 2015
A new Parasolid bridge is available which leverages the native Parasolid binaries to provide healing as a part of the export process. The result is a higher quality model. You are also able to export directly to an open Parasolid session. See HOOPS Exchange for Parasolid Developers for details.
Our SOLIDWORKS reader now supports diffuse textures and views. Improved support for PMI.
Our IFC reader has a new option pertaining to faceted B-rep. Previously, a single face would be generated for each triangle imported as a part of a faceted B-rep structure. Now, the reader will merge collections of faceted triangles into a single entity by default. You can control this behavior by altering the m_bFACETED_BREPAsOneFace member in the A3DRWParamsIFCData structure.
Our NX reader PMI support is improved.
Better management of markup data positioning.
Our JT file reader now supports ULP (Ultra-Lightweight Precise) B-rep as well as LODs.
The Autodesk Inventor reader now supports diffuse textures.
GUIDs are now included with the minimal set of attributes when loading IFC files.
Performance has been improved.
When exporting Parasolid models, we now keep the topology as close as possible to the original topology in order to prevent topological artifacts.
