Datakit announces the version 2018.2 of its CAD conversion tools

New in this version: CATIA V5-6R2018, CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE R2017x and Revit 2018 formats support, OBJ textured files conversion, Rhino 6 compatibility, B-rep writing in 3DPDF...

The latest update of Datakits CAD data exchange software range is now available!


This new version of CrossManager, CrossCad/Plg and CrossCad/Ware adds the following improvements:

- New CAD formats versions support: CATIA V5-6R2018 (R28), CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE R2017x and Revit 2018.

- OBJ reader : Textures included in original file are now preserved. Software vendors can therefore import textured OBJ files into their application, and CrossManager users can convert these OBJ files into formats supporting textures, such as 3DPDF.

- CrossCad/Plg plug-ins for Rhino are compatible with Rhino 6.

- The 3DPDF format writing is now able to save models geometry as Nurbs surfaces (B-rep). Users can choose to get a file containing mesh, B-rep, or both of them.
This improvement also applies to PRC format writing, as this format is encapsulated in 3DPDF.

This version also benefits from the constant improvement of the dozens of CAD converters provided by Datakit. Indeed, they are maintained constantly, in order to improve their quality and to process new entities, while optimizing the execution time.

Datakit tools remain completely independent and dont require any third-party license to work.

Users wanting to try Datakit software can download it and get a trial license on CrossManager and CrossCad/Plg official pages.

Software vendors interested in CrossCad/Ware, the API enabling them to integrate Datakit technology in their own applications, can visit the API description page and contact Datakit to get information relevant to their activity.

EXAIR’s Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

Quiet, efficient, concentrated flow of ionized air removes static and dust! EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon neutralizes static electricity and cleans at distances up to 15 feet (4.6m) with no moving parts. It is ideal for those hard to reach spaces or confined areas that require a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions. The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon will maximize ionized airflow while minimizing compressed air consumption. A small amount of compressed air is used to entrain a high volume flow of surrounding air. This combined stream is ionized by an emitter point (shockless) and delivered to the charged surface. A hose or tube can be connected to the air intake of the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon to draw quality air from another area. It requires only 10 PSIG (0.7 BAR) for most applications. www.exair.com/184/iacdirem.htm EXAIR is offering a special right now on all of their Gen4 Static Eliminators.
