28.4.2019: the Office for Intellectual Property granted CAD Software Solutions the first patent for the unique process of data simplification
As of February 28, 2019, the IGE (Institute for Intellectual Property) Bern granted the first of several national and international patents from CAD Software Solutions for the simplification of 3D data. After lengthy and time-consuming international research, it was recognized that the method for data reduction developed by CAD Software Solutions is new and unique in the sense of the relevant laws. This means that there is nothing standing in the way of granting further patent applications relating to this patent.
The patent describes the process for fully automated and dynamic simplification of 3D CAD data. This process makes it possible to simplify CAD data from very large assemblies in such a way that they are displayed in the best possible quality and performance even in web applications, on mobile devices and in VR, AR, WMR or XR apps. A key element in this regard is the dynamic simplification of CAD geometries. This unique process simplifies the elements to be displayed depending on the size, their topology and the respective position within the assembly structure. An optimal result in terms of quality and the amount of data to be displayed is thus achieved. This means that even assemblies with significantly more than 10,000 individual parts can be prepared fully automatically and visualized in corresponding applications for web and desktop applications as well as in apps for mobile devices.
