OLE for Design and Modeling and Translation

Solid Edge - Comments Off - Posted on February, 2 at 12:28 pm

OLE for Design and Modeling, or OLE for D&M, extends OLE technology to support design and modeling. One of the of the main advantages to OLE for D&M is that it provides cross-application integration. It gives you the freedom to integrate different software tools to meet your needs.

For example, you can use Solid Edge with other products for such tasks as model analysis without translating data. The Solid Edge Voyager Program unites Solid Edge with third party vendors of engineering and manufacturing software packages that complement Solid Edge’s design automation tools. The Voyager Program includes vendors specializing in such things as analysis, product data management, hardware, and rapid prototyping.

Advantages of OLE for D&M

In addition to cross-application integration, OLE for D&M also provides the following advantages over the earlier OLE 2.0 standard:

No Data TranslationOLE for D&M enables data access rather than data exchange, which means there is no loss of high-level data.

AssociativityOLE for D&M supports associativity which insures that the 3-D model in the downstream application is always kept current with design changes in the CAD model.

FlexibilityOLE for D&M allows a container to connect to any number of servers so that a collection of related geometry from different systems can be displayed in the container’s window.

Best of Class ApplicationsOLE for D&M gives you the freedom to integrate best in class software tools to meet your engineering needs.
