CADmeister is a hybrid modeler capable of operating wire frame models, surface models, and solid models.
It performs set operations of mixed data of surface model and solid model, and enables modeling environments free from the restrictions due to the differences in the types of data models.
4 Key Features
Seamless use of surface models and solid models
CADmeister enables creating models that consist of wire frame models, surface models and solid models, without changing the environment.
It is capable of performing operations of solids and curved surfaces, to say nothing of the capabilities of performing set operations such as sum, difference and product among solids.
Unrestricted uses of parametric and non-parametric modes
The parametric mode enables users to change in design as well as design standard parts that have various nominal dimensions and design on the basis of the reusable parts of existing models.
Either of the parametric mode or the non-parametric mode can be chosen and used at the discretion of user.
In other words, users can flexibly design without being restricted by the procedures of parametric mode.
Even the imported data by IGES is able to be operated on the parametric mode for subsequent operations.
They can use the non-parametric mode in the middle of the modelling.
Flexibility of Customization
CADmeister can be flexibly customized and fit to the environment of user through several hundreds of environmental setting details.
The script language dedicated to CADmeister enables the user to create their original commands and develop a database for their accumulated expertise for the use at CADmeister
Securing Data through the 'Warm Start' Feature
In case of a crash of CADmeister, the 'warm start' function enables a resumption of the job that failed to be saved immediately before the erroneous termination.
Surface Modeling, Solid Modeling
Solid Modeling is suitable for creating basic solids.
CADmeister enables creation of various types of solids such as draft solids, cylinders, cones, and helical solids.
Shapes can be corrected efficiently through Surface Modeling that enables an operation by the unit of surface, not Solid Modeling.
Complicated shapes can be created more easily and efficiently through Surface Modeling than Solid Modeling.
Various Type of Filleting
CADmeister is capable of rounding part of a cross section or plane surface through the use of trochoidloci. Further, it is capable of forming a gradual fillet. (The "Fillet" command)
Surfaces can be created for a junction of the surfaces by a single execution of this command, by specifying the target surfaces.(The "Fillet_Gradation" command)
Automatic Filleting By specifying a solid, this command automatically detects the ridges of the solid and creates a fillet for them.
This command is most suitable for creating fillets in the areas of drawing where R values have not been specified.
Subject to previously specifying R values at the target ridges before creating fillets, the ridges can be rounded at one time by a single execution of this command. (The "Fillet_Auto" command)
Multiple fillets can be created by a single execution of this Command if the same R value has been specified for them.(The " Fillet_Collective” command)
Filleting at Junction Points
This command easily creates a fillet at the junction parts of multiple boundaries.(The "Fillet_Branch" command)
CADmeister is capable of specifying the same extension scale for all of the axes, X, Y and Z or different extension scales for each of them.
CADmeister is capable of performing sophisticated offset processes for complicated shapes.
If there are areas that repel the offset process due to the surface quality, CADmeister automatically recognizes the areas that accept the offset process and performs accordingly.
Measurement and Assessment Functions
CADmeister is capable of testing a slope angle, calculating weight and mass, and measuring distances among lines and surfaces.
Numerous assessment commands for testing surfaces are embedded in CADmeister in order to confirm that there should be no swells or warps: curvature indication, indication of parameter fixed lines, indication of contours, search for undercuts, and indication of sections.
