- CrossCad/Plg plug-ins for Rhino are compatible with Rhino 6.
- The 3DPDF format writing is now able to save models geometry as Nurbs surfaces (B-rep). Users can choose to get a file containing mesh, B-rep, or both of them.
This improvement also applies to PRC format writing, as this format is encapsulated in 3DPDF.
This version also benefits from the constant improvement of the dozens of CAD converters provided by Datakit. Indeed, they are maintained constantly, in order to improve their quality and to process new entities, while optimizing the execution time.
Datakit tools remain completely independent and don’t require any third-party license to work.
Users wanting to try Datakit software can download it and get a trial license on CrossManager and CrossCad/Plg official pages.
