Does anybody work with ACIS and OC?

I'm looking for people that know both technologies. I'm very intrested in ACIS functions wcs_model_to_active,wcs_get_active,api_wcs_set_active. Is there similar funcionality in OC?

Hi Marek,

I'm not working with the ACIS modeler but am developing a translator between OCC and ACIS-SAT formats (Alpha version is available for evaluation). It is part of the CAD Exchanger ( project.
So, it's not a direct help to you but can be relevant if you need to exchange data between the two kernels.

Thanks for your reply. Our application will need converters At the moment we are on stage of making visualization. We looking for similarities between ACIS and OCC. Our old application is made with use of ACIS. But I'm sure that in near future this topic will grow.
