Theorem, a certified software supplier to Ford, have released the latest version of JT to CATIA V5 Ford Supplier Production Software, which is now available for download via either the Covisint or Theorem websites. The updated release is called JT-CATIA V5-6R2016 (Version 19.3.108) for Ford FEDE-C3PNG SER3.5 Update Release. Upgrade confirmation will also be sent to all suppliers from Ford together with additional details.
For this version, all users must ensure that they have upgraded their license to the Theorem Solutions version 19.0 or higher to enable the software to function. Any earlier licenses must be discarded.
Ford have chosen Theorem’s JT to CATIA V5 translator to support both their internal ‘Design in Context’ strategies and their defined process and methods for communicating design and manufacturing information with suppliers.
Suppliers moving to this latest release will benefit from continued updates of their environments to match that of Ford’s internal version, enabling them to seamlessly exchange data between Ford and themselves using JT format data.
The JT to CATIA V5 product directly converts JT data into CATIA V5. The software converts all forms of 3D mechanical design geometry and assembly data. In addition to structure and component information, it converts product manufacturing information (PMI) from an existing JT file, into a CATIA V5 representation, together with colour and system defined attribute information. In the context of Ford’s defined methods the software is run directly from within CATIA V5.
If you are a Theorem Solutions JT – CATIA V5 maintained customer you will be able to download the free upgrade to your Theorem Solutions CADverter ensuring that it remains compatible with the latest Ford approved software and process.
If your Theorem Solutions software is NOT maintained and you require the new release in order to remain compatible with Ford please contact Theorem.
