SparePartsPlace Toolkit 2019. 3 and 2020.3 for Inventor 2019 and Inventor 2020 are released.

SparePartsPlace Toolkit 2019. 3 and 2020.3 for Inventor 2019 and Inventor 2020 are released. The revised algorithms for CAD geometry simplifications and data calculations work more efficiently in these new versions and allow calculation times to be reduced by an average of approx. 35%. Especially with smaller CAD assemblies – i.e. assemblies with up to 2,000 individual parts – savings of up to 65% of the preparation time are achieved.
The revision of the mesh calculations was also refined with regard to the flexible and dynamic simplifications within the assembly structures. This makes the newly created geometries even more efficient for use in web, cloud, mobile, VR / AR and HoloLens applications. The SPP Unity3D Package has been adapted accordingly. This Unity3D package contains all the functions necessary to develop your own Unity3D applications for large CAD assemblies. CAD Software Solutions makes this package available to all developers of Unity3D applications free of charge.
Trial version of the SPP toolkit for Inventor 2019 and Inventor 2020 as well as the SPP Unity3D package can be requested here

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.
