Data modification in CADthru is accomplished using an interactive Wizard. Dialog option is available for shape modification or shape transformation.
Automated modification wizard
Surface data (MDL file) for SC/Tetra can be output by setting of basic fill-in, outline retention, surface creation, or modification at importing CAD data.
Cleaning can be re-executed upon completion of MDL file, and computational data can be created in high-quality finished form.
Simplifies a complicated geometry and makes an imperfect geometry "watertight". Using one easy operation by "Wrapping" acts as if wrapping the geometry with a piece of cloth.
Pattern recognition and auto-deletion
Extraction and removal of unnecessary holes, fillets, bosses
Extraction of fluid region
Creation of inlet/outlet and extraction of fluid region
Removal of close faces
Removal of unnecessary gaps
This function imports originally complicated data as simplified data into CADthru
Data Conversion : CAD to SC/Tetra native format
Through the well-guided MDL Wizard, CADthru diagnoses CAD data, fixes problematic features, and outputs model data compatible with SC/Tetra.
Simplifying and Editing Geometry
CADthru features a variety of useful functions that are easy to use and require little technical background : These functions include Extraction of fluid regions from model, Simplification of complicated geometry, and more.
CAD Data Import Option
In addition to intermediate files such as Parasolid, STEP, and STL format, Native formats of 3D CAD data can be directly imported. (Option) Geometry editing function of CADthru can be fully used for these Native formats as well.
