What’s in the SuperView Eval?

What’s in the SuperView eval? Many people think that the TransMagic Superview eval must be some kind of limited version of TransMagic, but the standard SuperView eval is exactly the same as the one our customers use; it’s just limited to 7 days of use. Overview In the SuperView eval you get all of the normal features of Superview, as well as two add-ons: MagicHeal and MagicCheck.   Superview CAD Viewing Open and view any major 3D CAD format, including CATIA V4, V5, V6, JT, NX, Creo, SOLIDWORKS, Solid Edge, Inventor, ACIS, Parasolid, SMS, STEP and IGES, as well as NGRAIN and numerous polygonal formats.

Welcome to our first edition of AbraCADabra™

Scroll below to subscribe. At TransMagic our life is 3D CAD data. And our mission is to make your life easier when it comes to sending it, receiving it, repairing it, creating documentation from it…well, you get the picture. The use of 3D data is continuously growing. It used to be that only designers and engineers used 3D data, but that is not the case today. Smart companies are leveraging these 3D assets across functional areas. If you have to “touch” 3D CAD data, we want to be your tool of choice – Our driving force is to provide 3D CAD data power tools that are easy to use. So welcome to our first edition of AbraCADabra™ – 3D News from...

CAD Formats

CAD Format Types This CAD formats listing is broken into four areas: Native CAD Formats Geometric Modeling Kernels Neutral CAD Formats Tessellated formats ‘Precise’ refers to any kind of CAD model, whereas ‘Tesselated’ refers to polygonal models. See end of this page for further clarification. Please note that ‘TransMagic Read’ and ‘TransMagic Write’ capabilities refer to TransMagic Expert. See specific capabilities of each core product at the bottom of this page. Native CAD Formats Native CAD Formats refers to formats that are proprietary to specific CAD systems. If you have the ability to read these formats,...
3D Printers Under $4000 Compared for Industrial Usage

3D Printers Under $4000 Compared for Industrial Usage

“The 3D Printer market is exploding. With dozens of affordable 3D printers, arbitrary categories, endless specifications and variations, how do you choose the device that will best meet your industrial 3D printing needs?” By Brad Strong and Todd Reade The 3D printer market is exploding. According to the Gartner group, approximately 220,000 3D printers were sold in 2015, the number doubled to about 450,000 in 2016, and we are on track to see a factor of 15 increase to 6 million units sold, per year, in 2020*. These numbers include both personal and business usage. Here at TransMagic, we are interested in the business/industrial use of 3D printers....
3D Printing Priorities

3D Printing Priorities

Recent survey results from a 2017 Sculpteo survey highlighted the top priorities of 3D printing for the industrial sector, in terms of what they want to achieve with 3D printing. It seemed to us that these 3D printing priorities implied that they are also benefits of 3D printing, and some of these benefits are ground-breaking enough to the design and manufacturing industry that they deserve more clarification. The Sculpteo survey was answered by over 900 respondents, 60% of whom work in Europe, and 30% of whom work in the US. If you’re interested in checking out the rest of the survey yourself, see the link at the end of this article.   Top Priorities...
Materials and Mass Properties

Materials and Mass Properties

This article will demonstrate how materials are applied to models in TransMagic R12, and how parts and assemblies can then be interrogated for Mass Properties. Mass properties are particularly useful if you are generating quotes or estimates, and need to know the weight or volume of materials for the part or complete assembly. Another common use for mass properties is to get the volume calculation for estimating 3D printing print times and material costs. The Mass Properties dialog box also provides moments of inertia and allows you to create three planes that intersect at the centroid. Applying Materials Parts should already have a default material assigned;...
