CCE Updates Open Data eXchange (ODX) Libraries for NX 11.0 Data
FARMINGTON HILLS, MI, Nov 18, 2016 – CCE, a leading provider of advanced CAD interoperability technology, announced significant updates to its Open Data eXchange (ODX) libraries with support for NX 11.0 data.
The latest ODX library for NX includes support for convergent bodies introduced in NX 11.0. Convergent Modeling is breakthrough technology introduced in NX 11.0 that allows designers to work directly with facets, surfaces and solids all at once, without the need for any data conversion. This new modeling paradigm has a lot of application in the medical industry, especially when working with scanned data for designing implants.
“Convergent Modeling is a very exciting technology introduced recently by Siemens in its NX 11.0 release. It not only helps working efficiently with scanned data in a designer’s modeling environment, as is seen very commonly in the medical industry for designing cranial or dental implants, but also optimizes product design to support 3D printing and additive manufacturing. CCE continues its commitment to keep pace with CAD updates and provide its ISV customers the ability to support convergent modeling data in their own application within months of the release of NX 11.0,” said Vinay Wagle, CCE’s vice president of sales and marketing.
CCE has also enhanced NX export capabilities in its ODX libraries with the ability to create parts with Parasolid compound bodies in addition to solid and sheet bodies.

About Open Data Exchange (ODX)
Open Data Exchange (ODX) libraries read & write Native CAD data. File formats that are currently supported for ODX include CATIA V4, CATIA V5, CATIA V6, NX, Inventor, SOLIDWORKS, Pro/ENGINEER (PTC Creo), JT, Solid Edge, Parasolid, IGES, STEP, 3D PDF, VDA, & STL. Applications developed using ODX libraries are independent of CAD. The libraries written in C & C++ are easy to implement & follow software releases via continuous updates. Apart from licensing the library components, they also provide integrations services to integrate their libraries into customer applications. The true benefit of using their ODX libraries is the reduced cost to the user. Their ODX libraries do not require CAD software or licenses, which can be quite costly. ODX gives the user the ability to read & write native CAD files without the cost of ownership associated with the CAD system.
