Anark Announces Release of Anark Core Platform Version 3
Anark Core(TM) 3 Connects and Integrates Product and Manufacturing Data and Publishes Secure, Standards-Based Adobe 3D PDF Documents
Boulder, CO, - Anark Corporation, leading provider of automated 3D transformation and visualization solutions, today announced the release of Anark Core 3, which adds powerful new capabilities to further automate the efficient use of 3D CAD data and manufacturing information within PDM and PLM environments.
New to Anark Core 3 is the ability to more easily connect, combine and publish data that is locked within PLM, PDM, ERP, SCM and MES databases like Siemens Teamcenter®, PTC Windchill®, Dassault Systemes' ENOVIA, Oracle®, SAP®, and others. These powerful new capabilities provide an efficient and easy to deploy solution for unlocking, repurposing, and distributing product, manufacturing, and supply-chain data for downstream design collaboration, manufacturing automation, Model Based Definition (MBD) data exchange, visualization, simulation, and technical documentation applications for consumers both inside and outside the corporate firewall.
Unlike other solutions, Anark Core can automate the entire process of accessing and re-purposing 3D CAD and product information every time there is a significant design or production database change, and ensure that downstream consumers are always working with up to date product design data in real-time. Anark's Adobe-native PDF export offers customers a secure, standards-based, best-in-class solution for archiving, distributing, and exchanging critical product information within the supply chain.
"Anark's new PDM and database Connectors provide a simple-to-use common interface to a wide array of enterprise databases employed by the customer to store and manage their design and production data" said Stephen Collins, CEO of Anark Corporation. "Once these connections have been established, Anark Core 3 can automatically combine relevant 3D CAD, manufacturing data, and related product information required by a specific supplier or class of suppliers. This data can then be delivered within secure, forms enabled 3D PDF documents or other compatible PLM formats such as lightweight JT, CATIA, ACIS or Parasolid. This solution eliminates risks and cost-overruns incurred when downstream users are provided incomplete or out-of-sync product data."
Rockwell Collins has selected the Anark Core platform to enable virtual reality as an integral part of the design process. The ease of use and powerful automation features in Anark Core 3 facilitates the creation of lightweight VR models quickly and efficiently and accelerates the product development process.
New Feature Highlights in Anark Core 3
o Import CAD and related product information from engineering, manufacturing, and supply-chain databases
o Native support for import and export of Siemens PLM Software's JT(TM) data format
o Embed manufacture-quality B-rep CAD models within secure, standards-based, 3D PDF documents
o Create annotated work instructions, part catalogs, first article inspection and other technical documents automatically each time a design changes
o Transform large volumes of 3D CAD models using recursive component and assembly-based batch processing
