Luminary Cloud, a new cloud-native computer-aided engineering (CAE) platform has licensed Siemens’ Parasolid software for integration with Luminary Cloud, the company’s new simulation platform-in-the-cloud to enable its Realtime Engineering.
Developed by Siemens Digital Industries Software, the Parasolid geometric modeling kernel is embedded in leading CAD applications, including Siemens’ NX software, Solid Edge software and Zel-X solution.
Embedding Parasolid will enable Luminary Cloud to access and manipulate native CAD models from a large 3D data ecosystem, providing a path to optimizing the customer’s design.
“We’re pleased to adopt the leading open 3D modeling technology from one of the giants of this industry,” says Srini Arunajatesan, Luminary Cloud director of Engineering. “Siemens’ Parasolid enhances our platform and makes it that much more attractive to our mutual customers. We’re all about accuracy, speed and interoperability, and Siemens’ openly shared modeling technology helps us get there.”
Luminary Cloud says it pioneered Realtime Engineering to deliver faster engineering cycles and quicker insights. From its initial concept, Luminary Cloud’s design principles have called for high functioning CAD and meshing, and native geometry support is key. In this collaboration, Luminary provides users with the flexibility to integrate CAD and meshing.
Parasolid is at the core of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio’s open and flexible ecosystem and as a widely adopted geometric modeling kernel, offers Luminary Cloud end-users full 3D model compatibility across 350+ Parasolid-based software applications, the company reports.
“Luminary Cloud is an exciting new player in CAE and we’re committed to Parasolid enacting interoperability for their end-users. While we deliver end-to-end solutions, we acknowledge that third parties are sometimes integral to the customer’s requirements,” says Bob Haubrock, senior vice president, Product Engineering Software, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Sharing Parasolid underpins our philosophy of openness that satisfies the need of customers for truly integrated solutions, while setting us apart from other software vendors who claim to be open yet lock their customers into specific platforms / solutions.”
