TransMagic Video Tutorials for New Users


Translate, Validate, Diagnose & Repair CAD Files

This 2-minute tutorial shows you how to open and save files, as well as how to use the TransMagic Auto Repair Wizard to diagnose and repair CAD files.

All core TransMagic products (SUPERVIEW, PRO and EXPERT) come with Lite Repair, which is demonstrated in this video, and will stitch surfaces into watertight solids.

This video also shows a bit of Full Repair, which can repair more complex problems with CAD models. Full Repair is a part of the MagicHeal add-on.

Create Annotations & Dimensions, Interrogate Solids, Save to 3D PDF and WebGL

Open any CAD model – integrity is verified by the Auto Repair Wizard. Create annotations on any face or edge. Create dynamic dimensions by clicking on one or more edges or faces. Add markup for further communications. Save As 3D PDF – then open the 3D PDF document by clicking on it. Anyone who has Adobe Acrobat can open a 3D PDF file. Similarly you can save out WebGL files for internal or external communications as well as parts libraries. WebGL files are viewable in any HTML 5 compliant web browser, and do not require a plugin. 

Diagnose Problems and Repair Geometry with TransMagic MagicHeal

This tutorial will show you the basics of how to use MagicHeal to replace missing geometry in your CAD models. It’s six minutes long, and covers adding tangent and sharp attributes to open circuit edges, Find Next and Cover Face options, using the Auto Repair Wizard and Lite Repair to get the initial analysis, and to stitch the new surfaces into place, using Skin Between Edges to generate a sidewall (a ruled surface in this case), adjusting model apparent faceting, Show Face Curvature, changing part color, checking Mass Props. 

Viewing and Sharing MBD & PMI

TransMagic allows you to view and share MBD and PMI data with others in many ways, a few of which (3D PDF and JT) are shown in this short overview. This video starts by having you open a sample file. PMI is associative with part geometry, so you can see clearly where the PMI is applied to the part, reducing confusion. The PMI View Browser lets you view PMI on a per-plane basis, further reducing confusion. Writing out a 3D PDF will let you communicate PMI information to internal and external customers without needing a CAD system or CAD viewer. You can also save PMI to the JT format.

Model Comparison – Know What Has Changed

CAD Model Comparison refers to comparing two CAD model revisions to see what changed. TransMagic MagicCheck provides an easy to read heat map visual representation of where the original part envelope has been changed beyond the tolerance you specify.
