Clean up virtual world 3D file exported from CAD tools
vrcadcleanup('filename') copies the specified file to a backup file
with the extension
bak. It then modifies the virtual world 3D file
exported from Pro/ENGINEER® or SolidWorks®. This cleanup enables the Simulink®
3D Animation™ software to use these files.
vrcadcleanup performs the following modifications to VRML
Removal of everything except inlines, viewpoints, and transforms
Provision of names for inline transforms
You can use
vrcadcleanup with VRML files (
but not with X3D files (
vrcadcleanup('filename', 'hint') takes in account the value of
'hint' during conversion. Possible value of
|Assumes that the software is exporting the original set of virtual world 3D files from SolidWorks. This option adds or increments the numerical suffix to the node names to match the part names that exist in the corresponding physical modeling XML file.|
This function expects the input file structure to correspond to the typical output of the specified CAD tools. The typical input file should contain:
A structure of viewpoints and inline nodes (possibly contained in one layer of transform nodes)
One inline node for each part of the exported assembly
The function also performs the following:
Upon output, discards any additional nodes, including transform nodes, that do not contain inline nodes.
Processes hierarchically organized assemblies, where inline files instead of part
geometries contain additional groups of nested node inline nodes. In such subassembly
files, copies all inline references to the main virtual world 3D file. The function
wraps these inline references with a
Transform node, using a name
that corresponds to the subassembly name.
If you call this function for a file that is not a product of a CAD export filter, the output file might be corrupted.
