Format Support: Visualize 3D Parasolid Data (X_T, X_B) with Afanche3D

Parasolid is a geometric modeling kernel originally developed by Shape Data Limited, now owned by Siemens PLM Software (formerly UGS Corp.), that can be licensed by other companies for use in their 3D computer graphics software products. Even if you use CAD software like CATIA, ProEngineer, SolidWorks, NX, or other 3D tools, which might not save Parasolid file directly, you can certainly use the CAD software to export your model in Parasolid format. File extension of Parasolid files could be .x_t which is ASCII format Parasolid data, or .x_b which is binary format Parasolid data. Afanche3D supports both of them.

The following picture shows an example of Parasolid data displayed in Afanche3D
