Open CASCADE Joins with Leading CAD Specialists to Build the New OMG CAD Services Standard

The Open CASCADE development team will contribute by creating an open-source

implementation of CAD Services V1.0 based on Open CASCADE object libraries



Jul 27, 2001, 01:00 ET from Open CASCADE S.A.

    PARIS, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Along with IBM, NASA, SDRC and Unigraphics
 Solutions, Open CASCADE has submitted a proposal to the Object Management
 Group on the definition and effective implementation of the CAD Services
 Standard.
     The CAD Services Standard is an interface standard for mechanical CAD
 systems that enables the interoperability of CAD, CAM and CAE tools.  The aim
 is to provide users of design and engineering systems the ability to
 seamlessly integrate best-in-class software across a wide variety of CAD/CAM
 and CAE applications through CORBA interfaces.  These standard interfaces
 enable a distributed product design environment that includes a variety of CAD
 systems.
 
     Open CASCADE aims to promote an open-source standard for 3D modeling
      solutions
     As a voting member of the Object Management Group (OMG), Open CASCADE's
 goal is to firmly establish the status of its open-source software as a
 standard in the domain of 3D modeling solutions.  Not only is a standard
 solution in Open Source an invaluable asset for the optimization of product
 design in industry by allowing a free choice of software supplier, it gives
 greater control of the application development process.
     Open CASCADE S.A. is developing an open-source implementation of CAD
 Services V1.0 based on Open CASCADE object libraries.  This implementation
 will bring Open CASCADE data structures and programming interfaces as close as
 possible to recognized standards.
     Development specialists Mikhail Kazakov, Gilles Debarbouille and Daniel
 Brunier-Coulin are Open CASCADE's technical representatives to OMG.
     The Boeing Company, CFD Research Corporation, Dassault Systems, Ford Motor
 Company, the Franhofer Institute, GE, TranscenData, the Korean Advanced
 Institution of Science and Technology, MSC.Software Corporation and NIST
 support the proposal.  Project submitters and supporters of the standard test
 the concepts and approach used in the submission.
     The CAD Services V1.0 joint revised submission is available for
 consultation on the Web pages for the OMG Manufacturing Domain Task Force at:
 http://mfg.omg.org/mfgppe.htm#New .
 
     The Open CASCADE company provides specific developments for industrial
 customers and software editors, as well as services around the certified Open
 CASCADE version.  These value-added services optimize implementation of the
 user's development project and include on-site and online training, technical
 assistance, yearly support packages, personalized project follow-up and expert
 consulting.  For more information, see: http://www.opencascade.com .
