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!
