CCE has developed proprietary technology to read and write native CAD data. We brand these libraries as Open Data eXchange (ODX). File formats currently supported include CATIA V4, CATIA V5, CATIA V6, NX, SOLIDWORKS, Inventor, Creo, JT, Solid Edge, Parasolid, ACIS, IGES, STEP, 3D PDF, VDA, and STL.
These libraries, built completely from the ground up and not based on any native CAD APIs, do not require CAD software or licenses. Applications developed using our ODX libraries are totally independent of CAD. These libraries are very robust and are currently being used by a number of leading CAx software ISVs. The libraries, written in C++, are easy to implement and follow software releases via continuous updates.
