Coreform Cubit Data Translators

Your analysis depends on your CAD

High-quality data interoperability is important when using CAD for analysis. Cleaner data exchange means less need for geometry cleanup and decomposition, and that translates into lower cost and faster time to market.

Coreform Cubit Data Translators automatically repair geometry and topology, and perform tolerance resolution. With the Coreform Cubit Data Translators, there is no need to purchase expensive native programs.
