Automatically prepare complex CAD data

BUILD A DIRECT AND AUTOMATIC PIPELINE FROM CAD TO END-VISUALIZATION SOLUTIONS


PiXYZ PIPELINE allows you to build the perfect strategy for automatically optimizing your 3D models quickly and efficiently. It is a flexible solution that can be seamlessly integrated into your process and workflow.

Tailor scenarios to suit your needs (on demand service or internal development with PiXYZ PIPELINE EDITOR) and run them in PiXYZ PIPELINE engine to automatically process large sets of files.

With PiXYZ PIPELINE, you can shorten data preparation time and lessen effort. PiXYZ PIPELINE allows you to focus on successfully staging your optimized and ready-to-use models for building compelling virtual experiences.


Workflow

1. CREATE YOUR DATA PREP SCENARIOS


Tailor scenarios to address all your use cases for 3D data preparation and optimization.

There are two ways to develop scenarios: service on demand (software framework based on specifications) or internal development to build the framework best suited your process (Python scripting, no limits, PiXYZ STUDIO EDITOR and PiXYZ PIPELINE EDITOR licenses required*).

*Available only under certain conditions to OEMs.

2. RUN A BATCH IN PiXYZ PIPELINE


Run your scenarios in PiXYZ PIPELINE to process large set of files automatically.

3. GET YOUR 3D MODELS AND/OR SCENES


Get your optimized and ready-to-use 3D models and/or complete scenes.

Scenario examples: Catia to Unreal Engine, NX to 3ds Max, Solidworks to WebGL, PLM to PiXYZ REVIEW, VRED to VRED with 3D models, optimization and material auto-assignation, etc.

4. CAPITALIZE ON 3D DATA PREP


Re-use durably implemented scenarios for systematic data preparation and optimization. Treat more and more data automatically and efficiently.

PIPELINE WORKFLOW EXAMPLE

Here is a workflow example for automatic WebGL content creation using PiXYZ PIPELINE. It shows how you can convert a 3D model to a WebGL-ready asset.

TESSELLATION

PiXYZ Tessellator creates high quality, low density meshes from almost any CAD model. It provides efficient and very fast tessellation, thanks to smarter organization of vertices. It results in a highly reduced and optimized number of polygons.

DEFEATURING

PiXYZ can remove specific features from a CAD model e.g. through holes, blind holes and soon, fillets and chamfers. It removes targeted features, depending on the input settings.

DECIMATION

PiXYZ trimming solution reduces the polygon density of a mesh by deleting vertices. It allows for precise control and perfect preservation of model topology, normals distortion and texture coordinates (UVW).

HIDDEN REMOVAL

PiXYZ can remove non-visible (from a spherical camera) parts, polygons or patches. The Smart Hidden Removal function deletes parts, patches or polygons not viewed from a set of cameras automatically generated.

REPAIR FUNCTIONS

PiXYZ offers CAD and Mesh repair features, such as CAD topology correction, removal of duplicated faces/patches, face reconnection, polygon reconnection, normals/faces orientation unification, etc…

Who is it for ?

Companies that need to create a robust framework for automatic 3D data preparation and optimization that is seamlessly integrated with internal processes.

“PiXYZ PIPELINE solved our VR content creation workflow issues. We needed a solution to optimize thousands of CAD models every week. PiXYZ PIPELINE allowed us to deploy and scale complex automated CAD optimization strategies in order to feed our visualization BOM database. We can now use this optimized 3D data for VR review sessions at high frame rate, and we especially like the online sales configurator.”
