Leveraging PMI and 3D Views in standalone CAM thanks to STEP 242

Discussion created by Alessandro Alessandro Employee on Oct 29, 2019

Did you know that some of our partners (Computer Aided Manufacturing) can read STEP 242 files ?

When you open the file you will find all the 3D views that were created in MBD.

 

But it doesn't end there, PMI annotations are semantic!

This means that if you check properties of a dimension, datum, geometric tolerance, or note, CAM application recognizes all the rich information.

 

 

What's your experience with STEP 242 files ?

Have you found other applications that can leverage information in STEP 242 files ?
