3D modeling, Solids Modeling and ACIS .SAT file support in CMS IntelliCAD®
CMS IntelliCAD® PE Plus edition fully supports Spatial® ACIS solids modeling. Autodesk .dwg 3D solid modeling is compatible with ACIS file format. This means that 3D drawings created with CMS IntelliCAD® or AutoCAD®. CMS IntelliCAD® includes a non-history based, non-parametric-associative and non-direct modeling solids modeler. By being so, it's extremely fast to handle thousands of 3D individual solids entities with CMS IntelliCAD® resulting on a amazing graphics performance experience while handling large 3D files.
Interchange CAD data is a requirement and a reality between collaborative corporations. CMS IntelliCAD® PE Plus is able to import, edit, and export any existing .sat file files up to version 23 allowing 3D entities data interchangeability with other 3D CAD packages like SolidWorks®, Inventor, Alibre® or SolidEdge®.
CMS IntelliCAD PE is able to create 3D surfaces and meshes.
Starting from CMS IntelliCAD® v8.2 PE and above, it's now possible to import *.sat files in to IntelliCAD model view through ACISIN command. Additionally, though not being able to create/edit 3D solid entities, it also supports *.dwg file viewing that include such CAD entities.
CMS IntelliCAD® v9.0 PE and above include the ability to draw and modify 3D meshes using the new Facet Modeler for lightweight 3D drawings.
