Parasolid version 21.0 from Siemens PLM Software features enhanced 3D geometric modeling functionalities that allow more complex changes during local edits of geometry. For example, options have been added to automatically indicate desired behavior when features such as holes and bosses interact as the result of a local editing operation.

Another update is enhanced surface creation. According to the company, sophisticated sheet creation, surface creation and manipulation capabilities have been extended. Users can now perform sweep operations with enhanced control of rotation as well as with more complex guide curve configurations. In addition, users can perform loft operations between profiles while twisting along a path.

Other additions include enhanced application support and a new diagnostic mechanism. Tools that help application developers track the creation, editing and deletion of entities have been further developed to provide more support for undo and rollback algorithms. Also, the software allows end-users to manipulate their designs intuitively for maximum productivity without the need to consider the technical complexities of the operations they perform, the company says.
