Parasolid™ is the core of a geometrical modeling format which supports the following model types:
- solid bodies;
- finite elements.
The data transmission format of Parasolid™ allows the user to transfer data not only about the model, but also the relations between models.
The standard extensions of files are x_t; x_b.
To design a machining technology, information concerning the object geometry is required, and such attributes as light source, background color, transparency or smoothing angle, animation elements and event processing are irrelevant and therefore will be ignored.
SprutCAM 12 supports the Parasolid™ data transmission format up to 30.1 versions.
