Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The CADEX project has made important contributions to the exchange of geometry data between CAD systems using STEP by providing practical tools for the implementation of STEP software, developing STEP processors and contributing to test and validation methodology. This report presents the results of the project, divided into the following categories: (i) data specification, application protocols, ISO relations; (ii) software for reading, writing, handling, converting and checking data (common tool kit); (iii) processors dealing with data (category 1) and using the tools (category 2) for CAD data exchange between dissimilar systems; (iv) test and validation of data transfer.
