Question about parasolid
Join Date: Oct 2009

I haved a API that can read a number of CAD files, including
Parasolid. This API is written by python. Up to now, I relied on tools such as SolidWorks to create the CAD files. This works very well for complex models, since
tools such as SolidWorks are relatively simple to use GUI-based programs.
However, for certain very simple geometries, it would nice to have
a simple driven tool to pragmatically create simple CADs;
specially if I want to automatically create many models.
To that end, I see the following choices:
1. Find an open source API for creating Parasolid model.
2. Find a simple (preferably open source) tool (executable) that would
read a set of simple instructions and create a Parasolid model.
May I have your help on above items if not do you have a sample code
to help me in creating my own tool to directly write Parasolid files?
Thanks in advance,

The first thing that comes to mind when you mention an open source API for geometry is OpenCASCADE (http://www.opencascade.org/).
I don't know whether it can write a Parasolid file.
