Appendix

Manufacturing process analysis with TRANSVALOR solutions turn into more effective and reliable environment with the following benefits of CADdoctor TRANSVALOR Edition:

  • Manage Native CAD Format to Provide Reliable Geometries
    End-user avoids every situation of loss of geometry due to transfer from native CAD format to standard exchange format such as STEP. Typically, forging designers will now import their tooling geometries in native CAD files and convert them into Transvalor format prior to perform their FORGE® simulation.
  • Shorten the Workflow for Data Set-up
    The auto-check and auto-heal function bring comfort in the sense that most defects & geometrical errors will be automatically treated saving lots of preparation work. In forging design, common problematic situations (e.g. unstitched surfaces, short edges, etc.) are likely to be encountered in transition areas near the flash entrance or along the parting line with small fillet radii. Hence, designers will be no longer slowed down by tedious surface meshing correction.
  • Improve Mesh Quality for Faster & Greater Simulation Results
    CAD models often show tiny geometrical details which can result in heavy CAE models with very fine local mesh. The geometry simplification capability of CADdoctor TRANSVALOR Edition streamlines the model and drastically reduces the resulting number of nodes. It is noticeable on casting or injection molding application that an average reduction of 30% in the total number of surface nodes will result in a computation time nearly divided by 3. This astonishing feature is the perfect companion to the unique self-adaptive AAA re-meshing technique that is incorporated into TRANSVALOR solvers.

SOUTHFIELD, MI, February 14, 2017—Elysium Inc., a leading global interoperability solution provider, hosted their first global user and partner summit in Huntington Beach, California this January.  Attendees included a select group of engineering-driven organizations, many of which are engaged in implementing Model-Based Definition (MBD) for all-digital manufacturing processes.

Joining the Elysium summit were Boeing, Gulfstream, Google, Rockwell Collins, Renault Sport Formula One Team, Zodiac Aerospace, Adient (Former Johnson Controls Automotive Seating), Karma Automotive, Kuka Systems, Advanced Integration Technology, BC Engineering & Design, Parker Hannifin & Parker Aerospace.

“Each company that attended our summit has diverse engineering systems and partners,” said Annalise Suzuki, Director of Technology & Engagement for Elysium. “They absolutely must work from a unified digital model that conforms to the highest standards of accuracy for designing, machining and passing product information to stakeholders across their organizations.

“With the accelerating rise of automated work cells, we’re seeing a commensurate supporting investment by industry leaders who are concerned about ensuring that data quality doesn’t hold back the processing speeds offered by new technologies grounded in MBD. Increased production throughput and quality are key ingredients for profitability and customer satisfaction, whether in aerospace industries or consumer goods manufacturing. Our suite of solutions for the all-digital environment addresses long-standing challenges in data interoperability for both legacy and future products, systems, and platforms.”

CADValidator functionality highlighted

Model-Based Definition (MBD) enables the automation of 3D data capture and comparison capabilities. Highly robust Elysium software, such as the CADValidator module in the ASFALIS product, enables downstream processes to leverage fully vetted MBD data. While automating form-fit-function changes, CADValidator also captures presentation and representation changes that are not otherwise encapsulated in drawing-centric processes. (See CAD validation video.)

Renault Sport Formula One Team’s Ian Goddard was one of the presenters at the California summit. “Elysium software is critical to product development within our Formula One racecar program,” said Goddard, Head of Technical Partnerships and the engineer in charge of computer-aided engineering (CAE). “We collaborate with other partners like Infiniti, working with the Infiniti European Technical Centre to explore our common reliance on Elysium products. The development cycles of our F1 car center on tight race schedules and require very fast exchange of data without manually stopping to check geometry or question manufacturing process instructions. Our timescales are so critical that a single data issue could mean an important upgrade would miss its race debut but, with the support of Elysium, this has never occurred.

“Whoever originates the data in our supply chain, it has to read and perform the same for every expert in our network—our data is not allowed to have a pit stop for repair and tuning!”

DirectTranslator™

Elysium’s DirectTranslator™ provides a seamless connection between different CAD systems. The official partnerships with CAD vendors, along with Elysium’s industry leading Advanced Data Exchange Kernel provides for unmatchable healing capability to deliver the highest 3D product data quality. It greatly exceeds translation achieved by data exchanges via neutral formats, or any other translation tools in both quality and performance.

DirectTranslator™ operation is a simple pushbutton, native CAD-to-CAD translation and exchange of parts and assemblies. The largest advantage of Elysium’s DirectTranslator is the best-in-industry translation success rate between multiple CAD formats. Elysium has developed interoperability solutions under the official partnerships with all the major CAD vendors, and is well acquainted with the characteristics of each CAD system. Elysium DirectTranslator™ optimizes 3D CAD data for the target CAD system using its deep knowledge of CAD systems and sophisticated geometry handling technology. Its support of non-geometry elements, such as attributes and PMI (Product Manufacturing Information), as well as geometric information is what makes DirectTranslator™ stand out from all data exchange via other neutral formats.

CAD Data Validation

In addition to translation, Elysium also offers solutions to validate the CAD data to Daimler. Elysium validation detects and categorizes the inconsistencies of two CAD data files. The latest version of Elysium CAD Validation supports the validation requirements at Daimler to assure for absolute 3D model usage for a majority of horizontal and downstream processes. Validation of 3D geometry and PMI can take an engineer months to compare using the human eye. Elysium CAD validation modules can be easily integrated into PLM systems or Web application, and then automatically deliver 3D reports in HTML or 3D PDF directly from them. Reports include 3D visualization of the model, filters for analyzing specific PMI types, model views, pass/fail criteria, and much more. One major use case is to detect regression in CAD version-up. When a company upgrades a CAD system, they compare the CAD data from an older version against the data in the newer version to ensure that there occur no unwanted changes of the data in the latest release. Another major use case is to validate engineering modifications of CAD data against reference data sets, e.g., through engineering change orders Elysium Validation capability also ensures the JT data validity for the digital factory. Elysium Validation compares original CAD data and exported JT data for a specific manufacturing process and highlights differences or any inconsistencies.

Elysium to Release InfiPoints Ver.3.0 – Enhanced for BIM

Elysium to Release InfiPoints Ver.3.0 —Enhanced Functionalities for the Collaboration with BIM Solutions, and Scan Registration

Product Brochure PDF Icon

HAMAMATSU, Japan—Oct. 18, 2016—Elysium, a leading provider of point cloud data solutions, announces the latest release of InfiPoints Ver.3.0. Enhancements include supporting a wider variety of output formats to satisfy BIM (Building Information Modeling) software collaboration, as well as capabilities to quantitatively evaluate point cloud registration accuracy to better utilize your captured 3D point cloud data for engineering purposes, marking a shift from “point cloud for viewing,” to “point cloud for high-level application.”

As Building Information Modeling (BIM) becomes the standard for the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industries, effective and efficient 3D laser scanning and utilization of that data become a necessity. Every aspect of design, construction, maintenance, and renovation, are now being managed by 3D data.

It is important to understand the numerous issues, obstacles and complexities of applying BIM to existing buildings and structures. How will the BIM data be modeled? What are the costs and tools needed to collect existing measurements and 3D data? With the rise of building renovations and infrastructure renewals, and the decrease in experienced labor, there is a need for an optimal, cost-efficient solution for this new area of AEC.

Elysium’s newest version of InfiPoints meets this demand by increasing the efficiency of BIM modeling with the addition of steel structure modeling, and enhancements to the current piping capabilities. Elysium has developed technologies which allow not only geometric information to be exported, but parameters such as length and diameter to be exported as well, easing your modeling work flow of existing buildings in your BIM software. The modeled data can be exported as IFC, one of the most commonly used neutral formats, or to various exclusive CAD formats.

“Elysium has been delivering 3D CAD interoperability solutions to the advanced manufacturing industry for more than 30 years. We are really proud to develop our new technology to bridge InfiPoints with BIM not only with point cloud based modeled geometry, but also with its parameters utilizing our expertise and know-how” stated Atsuto Soma, CTO of Elysium Co. Ltd.

Soma adds, “As fundamental processes, such as multiple scan data registration, heighten its functionality and quality, and BIM software coordination strengthens, point cloud practicality needs to step up. BIM will become more active than before with use in existing building renewal, and point cloud will be more widely used in high-level engineering. Elysium has been researching and developing point cloud application solutions at a whole new level. Elysium would like to continue contributing to the expansion of the industry.”

<Major Enhancements>

1. Added Steel Structure Modeling Functionality
In InfiPoints, you can easily create CAD models of structural elements using planes auto-extracted from 3D scanned point cloud data. Standard specifications of steel structural elements (listed below) are pre-registered to InfiPoints, so that all you have to do is select a type, and adjust the size either by numerical values, or an easy mouse operation in the view window.
• H-beam
• I-beam
• T-beam
• Angle
• Channel
• Flat bar
• Square pipe
• User defined standards
This enhancement impacts the digitalization of existing facilities by creating rough CAD models of equipment, as well as surroundings including the piping systems, structures, walls and the floor, in InfiPoints, and then easily creates CAD models in BIM solutions based on them.

2. Enhanced Pipe Modeling Functionality
Pipe modeling functionality has been enhanced for detailed digitalization of pipe systems—connect pipes with reducers, set the clearance between flange pairs, and more. This allows you to export detailed CAD models to BIM solutions.

3. Added Support for Data Export Including the Parametric Information
You can export CAD models in editable formats including parametric information such as length and diameters. This includes IFC, a neutral format for BIM solutions, or other formats for equipment CAD systems. This addition contributes to a significant lead time reduction on the modeling process in BIM solutions because CAD models do not have to be created from scratch. CAD models can be created by modifying the CAD models created in InfiPoints.

4. Added Functionalities to Improve and Validate the Registration Accuracy
To meet the growing demands for “practical” point cloud data for wide utilization in the actual engineering process, data registration functionality has seen intensive enhancements;
• Added functionality to align shots to improve the registration accuracy
• Improved the detection accuracy of reference spheres / checker boards in point clouds
• Added functionality to evaluate registration accuracy and check detected errors in both numerical values and color map visualization
• Added functionality to export the evaluation results report for records and sharing purposes
This allows work planning based on a common recognition of registration accuracy among related persons, provide the client with an evaluation results report to prove that the registration accuracy is within a set tolerance, and more.

5. Added Support for Data Import of Scanned Data from DPI-8, a Handheld Scanner from DotProduct
InfiPoints now supports the data import of point cloud data obtained from 3D scanning with DPI-8, a handheld laser scanner developed by DotProduct.
DPI-8 is ideal for capturing areas invisible from stationary laser scanners, e.g., backside of equipment and tight spaces, and is often used in combination with stationary laser scanners. In InfiPoints, you can seamlessly integrate scanned data collected by both devices.
