DGN to JT CADverter brings new design capabilities

Theorem Solutions latest DGN to JT CADverter, developed to bridge the gap between the world of Plant Design and Mechanical CAD is now available!

Theorem’s DGN to JT CADverter resolves the issue of incompatible data formats and has the ability to complete full design reviews of combined data sets when plant and mechanical CAD design paths meet.

Theorem’s latest *.DGN to JT CADverter helps bring designs to life and opens up new capabilities for DGN data.

JT data can read directly by the Siemens mechanical CAD applications NX, NX I-DEAS and SolidEdge, effectively enabling users to access and work with Microstation data undertaking design in context activities.

The DGN to JT CADverter enables the DGN and Mechanical CAD user to combine data from both mechanical design systems and the Microstation application, allowing reviews of combined datasets to be performed.

Users of the DGN to JT CADverter can now benefit from:

  • Viewing a virtual reality mockup of an entire plant/ship incorporating newly designed components from external MCAD systems to see how they fit available space prior to manufacture.
  • Generate a number of JT data types that can be opened and shared with number of external MCAD applications
  • The CADverter integrates into an active Microstation environment but operates completely independently of any JT applications.
  • Multiple versions of DGN supported, all versions of JT supported

This product has been developed using both the Bentley Microstation and the Siemens JT Open API’s guaranteeing compatibility with the latest vendor releases and is available for Windows 32BIT and 64BIT platforms

JT > 3DXML CADverter

Capture and share live, accurate 3D data quickly and easily

Helping the CATIA Community to work with JT data

Theorem Solutions is pleased to announce the availability of their latest visualization products helping resolve the issue of working with JT data for the CATIA community.

Theorem’s JT to 3DXML CADverter makes accurate JT data available to users of CATIA V5, 3DLive, 3DVIA Composer, Delmia and Enovia.

With the use of Dassault Systemes strategic XCAD and Siemens JT Open technology ensures full compatibility, delivers high quality data and business benefits with the latest version of Theorem’s JT to 3DXML CADverter.

The resulting 3DXML data is a full and complete translation of the JT file, including Brep solids and surfaces, tessellated data, PMI (product manufacturing information), structure and colour. It provides users with new methods and extends the use of design data within a business enterprise and across supply chains.

Theorem customers will be immediately familiar with the interactive user interface for the translation of small numbers of files but it is likely that many organisations will gain significant benefit by running Theorem’s JT to 3DXML translator via the command line interface integrated in to their PLM environments.

Theorem’s JT to 3DXML CADverter is easy to use, saves a user time and reduces costs through not having to re-work data, also removing the occurrence of manual errors.

The JT to 3DXML product is available on Windows XP, Vista and 7, 32Bit and 64Bit platforms. Access to a licensed copy of CATIA V5 is required for operation.

Theorem’s JT to 3DXML CADverter is available immediately.

Processing all formats of CATIA data into NX

Theorem’s latest Universal CATIA translator for NX automatically differentiates between CATIA V5 and V4 data files and converts them to NX in a single operation.

This single translator accepts all combinations of CATIA V4 or CATIA V5 data and processes it directly into the Siemens NX file format. It doesn’t matter if the CATIA V4 data is in EXPORT, MODEL, SESSION or CATIA V4 Assembly Modeller format as they are all seamlessly processed from CATIA to the NX file format.

In addition, when processing CATIA V5 data, the same translator is capable of processing all combinations of CATProduct or CATPart files or even CATProducts that include references to native CATIA V4 models.

CATIA and NX are widely used in many long-term design projects and it is not unusual for design and manufacturing companies to employ both CATIA V4 and CATIA V5 on production work. Other supply chain partners may operate NX, resulting in collaborative projects that can involve a mix of two CATIA file formats as well as NX data. A further complication is that CATIA V5 assemblies may incorporate embedded CATIA V4 files – a fact that might not become apparent until there is a need to undertake data translation.

Providing a complete solution within a single product, Theorem’s Universal CATIA to NX CADverter eliminates the need for users to identify which version of CATIA the target data is supplied in. It not only identifies and converts mixed native CATIA V5 and V4 files automatically, but also recognizes and translates CATIA V5 assemblies that include embedded V4 data – all without operator input.

Most single version translators are unable to accommodate such shared format assemblies, Theorem’s Universal CATIA CADverter more than exceeds the capabilities of separate products – as even a combination of stand-alone V5 and V4 translators will fail to meet all user requirements.

Theorems Universal CATIA CADverter is a specifically designed translator supporting both 32bit and 64bit processing to CATIA V5 R21 and NX 8.

Priced as a single translator with a single maintenance cost the latest offering from Theorem resolves two data issues with a single solution saving time, effort and money!

64Bit Inventor to Creo View Adapters released to aid design process

Theorem Solutions is pleased to announce the availability of their latest visualization products helping resolve the issue of sharing data between the Autodesk Inventor and PTC Creo View formats.

Theorem’s Autodesk Inventor Adapter for Creo View (formerly ProductView) is a completely unique solution designed to aid supply chain collaboration!
The adapter rapidly and accurately publishes 3D mechanical design geometry parts, assemblies and 2D drawings, together with attribute information to the compact format used by the Creo View application.

Now available on both Windows 32BIT & 64BIT platforms, users can digitally mock-up and interrogate native Inventor data within the Creo View environment.

The latest 64Bit Adapter allows data to be as large and complex as required, maintaining full application functionality!

The adapter can be integrated into WindChill, DIVISION Graphics Server or other PDM environments.

To improve the performance of an overall conversion process, the user may select a subset of the input Inventor data to be processed, allowing the conversion process to operate on only those items that are of specific interest to the user.

Partnering both Autodesk and PTC enables Theorem’s products and solutions to consistently keep pace with vendor software releases and development cycles, making sure their advanced data translation tools always deliver the latest functionality to support the demanding needs of the user.
