    CAD and Collada

    I do a research for a 3d CAD open format.
    Can I use COLLADA for this reason?
    I will create my own OpenGL CAD renderer, so I don't care about implementations.
    The question is only about specification. Can I use COLLADA for CAD purposes?

    SVG is good enough for me but it is only 2D, so I must reject it.

    Re: CAD and Collada

    Yes, COLLADA 1.5 specification is adding elements specific for using in CAD.
    Specifically the B-rep and Kinematics sections.
    GEt the 1.5 specification here: http://www.khronos.org/collada/
    See this thread for sample and access to converters http://www.collada.org/public_forum/vie ... 5&start=15

    COLLADA 1.5 is the core component of automationML, http://www.automationml.org/ , an interchange XML standard for the automation (robot) industry, used in car manufacturing for instance. the Automation ML group has some software (.NET/C#) that may be useful to you, you may want to contact them.
