  • Runtime Schema initialization
    from EXPRESS file

  • Access to all meta-data defined by EXPRESS schema

  • ODA C++ late bound API, ISO-10303-24 SDAI
    for access to model data

  • Early-Bound access using generated classes
    for established schemas

    BETA: December ‘22
  • Read/write STEP data from/to SPF/HDF5/XML.
    ZIP versions supported.

Visualize

Visualize STEP data on the desktop or from any web-based application

  • Visual Styles

    Use different visual styles to customize your rendering of silhouettes, obscured (hidden) edges, transparency and more.

  • Performance

    Spatial filtering and other performance enhancing techniques provide fast visualization of STEP data, even for large models.

  • Navigation

    Use a set of standard features for navigating through a model such as zoom, pan, 3d rotation and more.

  • Materials and Lighting

    Use materials and lighting effects to create a high-quality, realistic visual representation of a model.
