Theorem Release Plant Design to Mechanical CAD Translators r esolving the issue of incompatible data formats across Industries
Staffordshire UK, 5th January 2012: Theorem Solutions, world leading supplier of PLM interoperability solutions provides latest DGN to CATIA V5 CADverter, developed to bridge the gap between the world of Plant Design and Mechanical CAD, resolving the issues of incompatible data formats and the ability to complete full design reviews of combined data sets when these two design paths meet.
The Microstation (DGN) to CATIA V5 CADverter has been designed specifically to take data from Microstation into CATIA V5 and Delmia. Normally these two design disciplines are used within different areas of an organisation but when they have to share data issues can arise. The primary issues being the incompatible data formats that exist between Microstation and CATIA V5 and Delmia.
Theorem’s CADverter provides a solution to this problem. It enables CATIA and Delmia users to take Microstation shared cell instances or reference files which are used to define product structure and create CATproducts in CATIA V5 or Delmia. Then by taking individual Microstation geometric items and creating a CATpart or CGR representation it creates geometric representations for use in CATIA V5 or Delmia.
The Microstation to CATIA V5 CADverter enables the CATIA V5 or Delmia user to take building or plant designs from Microstation and use them with Product Data in CATIA or with Digital Manufacturing and Production definitions in Delmia.
Theorem’s DGN to V5 CADverter has been developed using both the Bentley Microstation and Dassault Systemes API’s guaranteeing compatibility with latest vendor releases.
