Re: Licensing question

Hi Fausto
There is no limit, but an estimated number of users is part of the deal. If we see that actual number is significantly over we start asking questions

Re: Licensing enterprise option

Hi Ibi The subscription is for service. With an active subscription you can use any product and have support for it. The difference is in what happens if you do not renew subscription. With normal subscriptions (yearly or lower) the KC installation will stop working (compiled apps will still run any...

DG Kernel is stable

Dear all DG Kernel is stable. It was about the longest beta period for a release. We are happy with the quality, but we will keep checking and sorting out issues on margins for some time. Particularly documentation will get more work. There will be a change in pricing shortly. It will be about flexi...

Added Value

With DG Kernel we are trying to smooth sharp corners of OCCT, modernise it a little, make it more compact and simple.

Interface

Formally in v6 we have actually three interfaces to OCCT: - The new DG interface set - KC interface set, which closely follows OCCT API - And also via ITechnology_DG (see http://www.dynoinsight.com/Help/VC/OcctBridge.aspx ) one has access to the actual underlying OCCT API The last option is most use...

How open is Open Cascade

Some people are questioning this, but we did not have problem finding (eventually :)) the relevant code. The opaque handles design seems to be geared for very restrictive access, which does not really make good sense in open source software, but it is matter of getting used to it. This probably is a...

The value of OCCT

It is easy to fall into criticising OCCT and I am guilty of that too. We have to remember though the enormity and complexity of the task. CAD/CAM is everywhere these days. Nothing being manufactured without modelling at least, or better simulation. So a geometric kernel means virtual manufacturing o...

DG Kernel and Open Cascade

Dear all Open Cascade (OCCT) is the core of the parametric bspline modelling in DG Kernel, so it deserves a separate thread. I will be expanding this with time when I have some clear and useful thoughts to share. So, please check it again some time later. In v6 we have decided to part with the nativ...

Parametric Modeling

For Parametric NURBS Modeling we rely on Open Cascade integrated since v4.0. So far it was supported via IKO_* set of interfaces which is very close to the native Open Cascade classes. They are still available. Open Cascade is an awesome software, but it has its idiosyncrasies. A minor example is th...

Backward compatibility

We do our best to make it as many features as possible in this 6.0 release, but I am afraid there will be some losses on the margins. It is good to talk about features in terms of samples. The samples which disappeared in v6 like Emotion, Capture, TwoD, eXplorer, ... are uncertain at this point. Som...
