Abstract:

The Product Data Exchange Specification PDES is an emerging standard for the exchange of product information among various manufacturing applications. The neutral exchange medium for PDES product models is the STEP physical file format. The National PDES Testbed at NIST has developed software to manipulate and translate STEP models. This software consists of an in-memory working form and an associated physical file parser, STEPparse. The design and capabilities of STEPparse and of the STEP Working Form are discussed.
