Interactively prepare &
optimize any CAD data
for all your needs

THE ULTIMATE CAD DATA PREPARATION & OPTIMIZATION SOFTWARE.


PiXYZ STUDIO is a unique 3D data preparation tool providing the best-in-class Tessellator, enabling the transformation of CAD data from industry-leading solutions (Catia, NX, SolidWorks…) into lightweight, optimized meshes.

PiXYZ STUDIO’s interactive graphical user interface gives access to a large set of features and algorithms. It also embeds a Python API, allowing advanced users to create powerful scripts to automate complex data preparation tasks (import/export functions for batch processing not included).

PiXYZ STUDIO.batch is a premium version including additional Import/Export functions to the Python scripting capacities, for automatic batch processing of CAD files.

PiXYZ STUDIO & STUDIO.batch help companies and 3D users re-use their CAD data for any visualization scenario.

Workflow

1. IMPORT a native CAD file within PiXYZ STUDIO: CATPart, 3DXML, Solidworks, JT, STEP...
See formats supported in PiXYZ STUDIO

2. ASSEMBLE at scale large CAD files, conform them in an efficient way.

3. TESSELLATE CAD models, turning them into light 3D meshes using powerful tessellation algorithms, with automatic UV creation.

4. INTERACTIVELY treat your 3D meshes with an easy-to-use and intuitive user interface. Combine and process them dynamically with the possibility of reversing actions (modifier stack, NURBS conservation) according to your scenario.

5. OPTIMIZE your 3D models using a large and powerful set of algorithms: Tree optimization, Decimation, Holes Removal, Hidden Removal, Automatic UV, Automatic Proxy creation, Predefined and customizable scenarios... and many more!

6. EXPORT lightweight and optimized tessellated models to your favorite staging tools: Unity3D, Unreal Engine, VRED, WebGL, 3DSMax, Maya, SketchUp...

7. SAVE your optimized 3D model to our native PiXYZ format to enjoy better flexibility and efficiency during the content creation and optimization process.

8. REPEAT your data preparation scenarios using Python scripting for semi-automatic treatment.

9. BATCH treat automatically all your 3D files at once using the I/O function included in the STUDIO.batch version.

STUDIO WORKFLOW EXAMPLE

Here is an example of a typical workflow that can be processed in PiXYZ STUDIO to efficiently prepare and optimize your CAD models.

POWERFUL INTEGRATED SCRIPTING EDITOR

Create and save your own automatized process using the embedded Python script editor and automated script generation. PiXYZ STUDIO.batch comes with an additional Import/Export function to the Python scripting capacities, for automatic batch processing of CAD files.

MODIFIER STACK

Tweaking your 3D meshes in PiXYZ STUDIO is easy and operations can be reversed or modified, thanks to the modifier stack accessible from the interface that gives you access to the operation history. The modifier stack provides flexible and selective tuning presets.

TESSELLATION

PiXYZ Tessellator creates high quality, low density meshes from almost any CAD model. It provides efficient and very fast tessellation as well as a highly reduced and optimized number of polygons.

HOLES REMOVAL

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 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.

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…

FULL SCENE TREE - SCENE TREE MANAGING

Access to the original product hierarchy (full scene tree) and dedicated functions with which to optimize it.


Who is it for ?

Anyone who needs to take advantage of their 3D database: CAD experts, engineering & manufacturing departments, communication & marketing departments, agencies, interactive 3D developers, 3D artists, architecture firms...

“Before, I had to do a lot of manual operations in different software to optimize my CAD data. PiXYZ Studio saves me so much time, for an even better result. The mesh obtained from the tessellation has an outstanding quality, for a fraction of the polygon count I’m used to see in other software. I can create many optimization strategies and re-apply them according to the kind of CAD input and final visualization scenario."
“With PiXYZ Studio, I create scripts in python letting me do very complex optimization strategies. Possibilities become literally endless."
