ITI Unveils CADfix Viz 2 for Visualization, Virtual Reality
This latest release helps provide an efficient process for translating CAD models into high-quality lightweight meshes, the company explains.
December 14, 2023
International TechneGroup, Inc. (ITI) has launched CADfix Viz 2, a solution for optimizing and converting 3D CAD model assets for use in visualization and virtual reality systems. This latest release is developed to provide users with a more effective and efficient process for translating CAD models into high-quality lightweight meshes for use in downstream applications.
CADfix Viz 2 brings a host of updates and enhancements. The latest meshing algorithms provide a solid foundation for the CAD to mesh process, offering improved mesh structure and enhanced facet quality for results with higher quality visualizations.
Advances in simplification options available help reduce mesh detail and complexity before export. The hole, protrusion and internal detail removal tools have seen improvements in range of function, speed and accuracy. A new automatic mid-surface tool has been introduced to allow reduction of thin-walled parts to single surfaces, reducing the triangle count. CADfix Viz 2 can also quickly detect and delete duplicate faceted bodies, and a “Pick Similar” function allows users to rapidly select similar shaped parts for removal or simplification.
Assemblies can be handled more effectively and simplified with a new compression tool to remove duplicates within the assembly structure, and a new “auto-build” function will automatically create instanced parts to remove unnecessary duplicate geometry.
The import and export interfaces in CADfix Viz 2 have been updated to align to the latest industry standards and CAD formats, and a new export to the Universal Screen Description file format added. The FBX interfaces have been extended to support UV maps for visualization.
