Additional Advanced Publishing and CGR add-ons are now available from us to complement and enhance its existing CATIA V5 to Creo View Product, one of the products in our Visualize 3D suite.
The Visualize 3D product enables CATIA V5 assembly, geometry and attribute data, including manufacturing information, to be published in a Creo View format, extending the use of 3D data throughout the enterprise and supply chain as well as providing input data for multiple downstream processes.
These Add-ons enable users to get even more out of their CATIA V5 source data.
Advanced Publishing Add-on
The Advanced Publishing Add-on enables users to publish to alternate data formats in addition to the Creo View output e.g. STEP for archiving, STL for 3D printing, IGES and DWG. These additional formats can be published under managed conditions allowing the end user quick and up to date access to the most suitable data for their purpose, and can then be stored against the master CATIA V5 data in Windchill. This ensures that anyone working in the extended enterprise has the correct data to carry out their work.
Creating manufacturing information in Creo View enables the Model Based Enterprise (MBE)
The CGR Add-on allows additional data types to be translated between CATIA V5 and Creo View. The Add-on gives the user the ability to read additional entity types such as process plant pipes and space reservations and view them in Creo View which gives the downstream user more complete and accurate information.
The Add on also allows scanned data, such as contours and point clouds that have been captured in CATIA V5, to be translated to Creo View.
Viewing of assembly plant and equipment with the product data ‘in situ’ provides richer information and leads to better management information.
With Windchill, the creation of assembly level CGR ‘Super CGRs’ allows the output of a single monolithic’ CGR when a large assembly is processed, which allows faster access for users needing to view and access key assemblies
Our strategic partnerships with Dassault Systemes and PTC ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5, Creo View, and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions for CATIA V5 users wanting to Visualize their data in a different format.
