PEP can read, convert and process part data from all the following 2D and 3D formats:
- PDF files
- CAD file formats DXF, DWG, IGES, etc.
- CAM formats such as Bysoft, Cinsoft, Lantec, MTC, Metamations, Sigmanest, Tops, etc.
- CAD formats such as Solidworks, Solidedge, Pro-E, Inventor, AutoCAD
- Structural Steel formats; KSS, NC1, Tekla, SDS2, etc.
It is not necessary to remove title blocks, dimensions, notations, cross hairs, alternate views ( top, side, isometric, etc.), the PEP software will analyze the CAD data and find the part, then fix all the geometry errors automatically.
PEP Technology’s 2D flat to 3D Solid software eliminates having to draw parts in a 3D CAD product such as Solidworks, Inventor, Solid Edge.
The PEP software loads the 2D flat CAD file (PDF, DXF, DWG), separates invalid views, corrects all CAD errors and creates the 3D Solid part without having to draw the 3D part.
The PEP CAD Converter is strikingly different than other CAD Converters because the software is automatic.
The software analyzes the CAD data and finds the part and the bends automatically, then the software dynamically scales the part to the dimensions on the print.
From inside Inventor and Solidworks, you can push parts directly into PEP. No need to save special versions or do a "save as" DXF. Just one more example of what Automatic really means when PEP says Automatic Nesting.
