Anark CoreTM Adds Native 64 Bit, and Expanded Support for DWG and JT Formats

Anark Core 3.1 Quickly Makes Large 3D CAD Files Smaller, Lighter, Faster

BOULDER, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 22, 2010 — Anark Corporation, leading provider of automated 3D CAD transformation and product visualization solutions, today announced the release of Anark Core 3.1 which adds significant new capabilities to address the major bottlenecks that plague manufacturers when trying to collaborate, share, and repurpose complex 3D CAD data and manufacturing information.

"Anark Core 3.1 makes it easier to process large complex product assemblies, drastically reduce model size and detail, and prepare and convert 3D CAD content for visualization and simulation applications," said Stephen Collins, CEO of Anark. "When integrated within an enterprise PLM infrastructure, Anark Core's ability to make 3D CAD files smaller, lighter, and faster removes a practical and costly barrier preventing manufacturers from efficiently sharing this data and realizing its full value throughout the enterprise and extended supply-chain."

Anark Core 3.1 Feature Highlights

  • Native 64-bit support provides additional addressable memory for extremely large footprint 3D CAD assemblies;
  • Support for import and export of Dassault CATIA™ V5 R20 assemblies, import of Parametric Technology Corporation Pro|ENGINEER® Wildfire® 5 components and assemblies, and import of Siemens NX™ 7 components and assemblies;
  • Siemens JT™ format improvements resulting in up to 10x increase in import performance;
  • Adding to Anark Core's ability to simplify NURB and B-Rep assets, leverage existing PLM assets by re-tessellating high-resolution Siemens JT or CATIA CGR assemblies into high-quality, lightweight mesh models;
  • Simplify existing complex Autodesk DWG™ files containing parametric geometry and mesh-based objects to reduce file size and improve performance within AEC, space planning, and 3D catalog applications; intelligent edge suppression to create more attractive DWG symbols;
  • Improved load balancing and throughput for batch processing large numbers of CAD files with Anark Core Server.

"Anark Core 3.1 has added specific functionality to support 20-20 Technologies' End-to-End approach to content creation and deployment," said Bruce Allum of 20-20 Technologies. "Anark gives us the ability to easily defeature complex assemblies required to drive production in the factory floor and convert these into lightweight 3D drawing files that can generate business at the point of sale."

About Anark Core

Anark Core is an innovative PLM solution that quickly and easily simplifies and converts complex 3D CAD assemblies for downstream use throughout manufacturing, design, engineering, and support organizations. Unlike conventional CAD translation and conversion products, Anark Core captures all CAD simplification steps into "recipes" that allow manufacturers to automate the entire process of accessing and re-purposing 3D CAD and product information every time a significant design or production database change occurs.
