ITI is the global leader providing reliable interoperability solutions for product data and related systems. ITI’s solutions solve complex interoperability problems, supporting key aspects of MBE and PLM implementation including: data conversion, advanced simulation, digital manufacturing, change management, certification, long term archival, technical data packaging, and secure information transfer.
ITI’s CADfix software tackles the problems of CAD model exchange and re-use between diverse engineering applications. CADfix provides advanced geometry processing capabilities, with a focus on CAD-CAE and CAD-CAM integration for improved process automation and lead time reduction.
In addition to providing a rich selection of data translation and repair functions, CADfix offers tools specifically designed for improving digital manufacturing processes and product quality. CADfix pre-manufacturing tools include: fast and robust STL generation, accurate 2D slice generation, slice analysis, and optimised toolpath generation for each slice with a variable radius capability for different additive and subtractive manufacturing techniques.
CADfix also provides critical post-manufacturing data analysis to validate the accuracy and quality of the 3D printed part. By comparing a point cloud scan of the manufactured part back to the CAD model, CADfix can highlight production issues and help guide finishing processes for improved product quality.
