For several years, we have been studying CAD data conversion. Starting with the first virtual reality boom, we have been extracting CAD data from CAD systems and developing it for visualization. Using this as a basis, we have developed the CAD2Vis software, which converts CAD data in different formats into other CAD formats as well as visualization formats, including conversion for display in web browsers using X3D and WebGL. CAD2Vis uses a library and natively supports CATIA formats, among others. For more information on CAD2Vis, visit www.igd.fraunhofer.de/en/projects/cad2vis.
