Elysium is releasing a solution for multi-CAD to/from Quality Information Framework (QIF) for translation and validation between users as part of the new release of Asfalis software planned for early 2020.
The capability aims to connect design, manufacturing and quality inspection phases and streamlines workflows to support MBD/MBE, by using an XML architecture that defines, organises, and associates quality information needed in manufacturing systems.
With this capability, users will be able to translate CAD geometry and Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) to QIF and import high-quality data to QIF-supported metrology software and hardware.
“We’re providing a sensible solution for streamlining the manufacturing process by supporting the QIF lead taken by DMSC, where Elysium has a strong presence,” said Elysium CTO Atsuto Soma
“With translation tools between multi-CAD and QIF not yet widely developed in industry, manufacturers throughout the world have high expectations for a forthcoming solution.
“Elysium has advanced its geometry handling and CAD translation technologies significantly over the years—while continually strengthening genuine partnerships with major CAD vendors. Elysium hopes to better enable manufacturers in their Model-Based Definition and Enterprise (MBD/E) initiatives through its on-going support of QIF translation and validation.”
