CoreTechnologie Fully Supports STEP AP242 for Model Based Enterprise

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Aug. 3, 2017 — (PRNewswire) —  CoreTechnologie (CT), known for its 3D_Evolution® software, wholly supports the reading and writing of STEP AP242 that provides 3D digital information for downstream applications while maintaining PLM process flow through the archival of datasets. CoreTechnologie is in support of forward thinking companies that are embracing the transition to the Model Based Enterprise and are required to comply with federal and international regulations and standards. 

Validation Properties and Data Types Supported

Previous standards AP203 (aerospace) and AP214 (automotive) have merged to become ISO 10303 AP242.  STEP AP242 is a neutral file format that includes the assembly structure(s), composite data, exact geometry, tessellated data, semantic and graphical PMI.   Furthermore, this format allows the checking of validation properties including geometry, annotations, assembly, saved views, user defined attributes, color, visibility with validation reports; complying with LOTAR (LOng Term Data Archival and Retrieval) standards.  Future projects to improve STEP AP242 could include machining form features, kinematics and mating definitions just to name a few.

CT sits on the CAx Implementor Forum and is a board member of PDES, Inc., and was the first software company to develop and implement code to support the LOTAR consortium standards, initially at Airbus and continuing with many other customers in the aerospace and manufacturing sectors.  David Selliman, VP of North America, states, "Evolving technology increasingly requires capabilities for PLM interoperability to be based on open standards and CT will continue to stay on the forefront of development and implementation in this fast-moving universe."
