EDGE (ExtendeD Gdml Editor) is an easy-to-use GDML editor to load and edit GDML geometries.

Key Features

EDGE is a complete GDML editor as it allows to:

  • create a new GDML file
  • load existing GDML file
  • import B-Rep (GEO, STEP-AP203-214, MSH), and STL/UNV files
  • modify the geometrical properties of the shapes (solids)
  • modify the material properties
  • apply a translation/rotation to several shapes
  • real-time 3D visualization
  • save to GDML file
  • export to .geo files (file format of Gmsh)

Shapes availability

Currently, in EDGE these shapes are available:

  • Box
  • Cone
  • Ellipsoid
  • Orb
  • Paraboloid
  • Quadrangular
  • Sphere
  • Triangular
  • Tube

Technical Overview

EDGE is built on the basis of the Integrated Modeling Environment (IME) Keridwen. It provides the 3D view, a powerful and flexible CSG model to store the data as well as a GDML reader/writer and a possibility to export to .geo files. Most of these functionalities are provided by the Keridwen CAD module.
