The latest version of the German-French software company CoreTechnologie GmbH (CT) 3D_Evolution Simplifier software includes the Simplifier–a fully automatic calculation of the smallest sphere diameter that surrounds a part or an assembly. With this function, the Simplifier enables a time-saving and automated calculation of optimal packaging.
In addition to the diameter calculation according to DIN EN ISO 8062-1, minimal packaging dimensions can be calculated in the form of a box and output as a CAD model of any major format. The determination of the smallest possible packaging dimensions, i.e. the smallest possible space, is used, for example, to optimize logistics costs and to minimize the cost of materials for packaging individual parts or assemblies with a complex shape. This process can now be carried out automatically in seconds.
The 3D_Evolution Simplifier software is used for fast and automatic data simplification as well as for the conversion of CAD models of all common formats such as Catia, NX, Solidworks, Creo, Inventor, Step, JT and more. The creation of an envelope geometry helps designers work smoothly and quickly with extensive and detailed 3D original data in CAD, VR and simulation systems. In terms of data quality, the tool enables the conversion of perfect solid models through data analysis and correction functions. In addition to protecting the know-how by creating the envelope models, the technology reduces the file size as well as the elements that have to be displayed.
