The German-French software manufacturer CoreTechnologie (CT) has refined its data conversion software 3D Evolution. The current software version supports, among other major CAD formats, already the new STEP AP 242 format, which is a future standard for the collaboration of companies in the aerospace industry. Leading companies in the aircraft industry, such as Lufthansa Technik AG from Hamburg, use 3D Evolution for the STEP data exchange with customers, suppliers and engineering partners.

Future-oriented Solution

STEP AP 242 provides companies with a proven standard that also covers future-oriented topics such as composite materials and kinematics as well as Model-Based Engineering (MDB). In particular, MDB is an important focus because, by dimensioning directly on the 3D model, 2D drawings are about to be replaced.

Further integral components of the new AP 242 standard are the XML representation of assembly structures as well as a comprehensive handling of PDM-relevant meta-information. The new format makes the 3D data description a leading source of information for product data and will serve as a backbone in the entire PLM process.

Based on the STEP AP 242 format the innovative software company already implemented a certified validation process for long-term archiving (LOTAR) of 3D data for a major European aircraft manufacturer.
