Another convert to open systems

The developers of the surface modelling package, ICEM Surf, have concentrated on integrating the new version 2.3 more tightly into leading CAD systems and enabling easier conversion of surfaces from other systems.

Trimmed surfaces can be read via ASCII-part, IGES or VDA, or directly from CADDS or CATIA and the original edges of the trimmed surfaces stored as single entities in the ICEM Surf database.

Distributed in the UK by Topologies, the ICEM Surf product is particularly popular in the automotive industry for modelling ‘Class A’ surfaces, but is gaining ground in the industrial arena.
