Open Data Exchange(ODX)


We provide Open Data Exchange (ODX) libraries to read and write native CAD data. File formats currently supported include CATIA V4, CATIA V5, CATIA V6, NX, SOLIDWORKS, Pro/E, JT, Solid Edge, Parasolid, ACIS, IGES, STEP, 3D PDF, VDA, and STL. Applications developed using ODX libraries are independent of CAD. The ODX libraries are very robust and are currently being used by a number of leading MCAD software ISVs. The libraries, written in C and C++, are easy to implement and follow software releases via continuous updates.
INTEROP TOOLKITS suppported formats CATIA V4, CATIA V5, CATIA V6 3DEXPERIENCE, Parasolid, IGES, Inventor, Autodesk Design Review, JT, Creo, SOLIDWORKS, Solid Edge, ACIS, STEP, NX, CGR, and STL
Apart from licensing the library components, we also provide integration services to integrate our libraries into customer applications.
The true benefit of using our Open Data Exchange libraries is the reduced cost to the user. Our ODX libraries do not require CAD software or licenses, which can be quite costly. ODX gives the user the ability to read & write native CAD files, without the cost of ownership associated with the CAD system.
