Version 2.0 of Kubotek3D’s Kosmos framework is a set of advanced, multi-platform C/C++ software components that offer to maximise a program’s performance and ability to work with complete engineering models and data from all major MCAD databases.
Kubotek3D’s software facilitate interoperability between CAD programs – allowing geometry, no matter where it originated, to be used throughout the manufacturing supply chain – with Kosmos supporting software developers building precise 3D applications that need to work with engineering models and data.
“For the 2.0 release Kubotek Kosmos has been significantly re-packaged to better support two distinct groups of developers. The first group only needs to read precise engineering data and the second group also needs editing or geometry creation,” said Kubotek3D CTO Ram Eswaran.
Kubotek Kosmos 3D framework 2.0 also sees meaningful performance improvements in generating intersection slice profiles between a model and a series of parallel planes.
This slicing function, of special interest to users developing 3D printing applications, with Kosmos suggesting that its performance stands out from other modellers due to its unique un-constricted support for multi-threaded processing.
Other updates to v2.0 are listed as:
– Feature recognition detects additional and more complex types
– Full semantic support for PMI tolerance symbols
– Automated merging of redundant faces/edges improved
– Seamless API integration with Datakit direct CAD readers
– Licensing and trial system replaced for improved customer support
– Faceting performance
– Improvements to surface covering with primitive surfaces
– Polygon selection performance and support for references
– Unceasing improvements to quality and performance of file readers
