Fujitsu Launches iCAD SX V8, 3D CAD Processing 3 Million Parts in 0.2 Seconds
This is powered by the world's fastest 3D CAD engine.
Fujitsu has launched the latest version of the 3D CAD software Fujitsu Manufacturing Industry Solution COLMINA Design & Manufacturing Support iCAD SX(1) for machinery design.
The company says the solution greatly enhances current high-speed processing performance by improving memory access processing and can handle large-scale 3D data consisting of as many as 3 million parts in the design examination and verification of machine equipment. “It delivers processing performance that arrives at the result of trial and error by the designer in 0.2 seconds. Fujitsu has additionally developed and implemented new design functions that allow mechanical, electrical, and control designers to keep and utilize operation and manufacturing information, as well as functions that enable the use of 3D data in manufacturing and maintenance services,” the company added.
Fujitsu says this enables the smooth sharing of information between departments in a digital environment by connecting common 3D data from design upstream to manufacturing and maintenance services, contributing to the reduction of lead time in the manufacturing industry in the "new normal" era.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the promotion of the digital transformation of design processes, which are the upstream of manufacturing, according to the company.
“Along with this new normal way of working, collaboration between design, manufacturing, and services utilizing digital data also represents an area of robust and growing demand. In order to realize these requirements, it is necessary to have 3D CAD that can handle large-scale data such as equipment, facility lines, and entire plants, and can process various design information at ultra-high speed even if it is stored in one 3D data.”
