Make the most of installed CATIA licenses when working with NX

We are pleased to announce the latest release of CADverter V20.3 for CATIA V5i to NX.

Our CATIA V5i-NX is a uni-directional direct database converter between the Dassault Systemes’ V5 and Siemens’ NX modelling applications. It can be packaged with our NX-CATIA V5i to create a bi-directional product. It has been developed using the Spatial (Dassault) Interop Development Environment and supports all CATIA V5 revisions from V5 R15 to V5-6R2017, and NX 9, 10 and 11.

In this latest version, the new Theorem Unified Interface (UI) is supported for both interactive and batch processing. There are also interactive import/export menus in NX that are available for users.

Designed for companies who have limited or no access to the CATIA V5 application, but who need to create or read NX data, the CATIA V5i -NX CADverter is a high quality, cost effective translation solution designed to help solve the issue of working with and sharing incompatible data formats.

NX users who also have to work with data supplied in the CATIA format from customers and suppliers commonly find that they require access to a license of CATIA in order to translate the data in to NX. Using the CADverter, users can create NX data without needing access to a license of the CATIA V5 application.

Our CATIA V5i-NX solution helps to increase the productivity of the CATIA user by saving time and freeing up CAD licenses. It supports collaboration between OEM’s and their customers and suppliers, enabling original 3D mechanical design data to be re-used in downstream activities helping to increase data quality and reduce overall project costs.

Our strategic partnership with Spatial (Dassault Systemes) and Siemens ensures that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5 and NX, and Theorem’s CADverter products, allowing us to continue to provide quality and robust data solutions for CATIA V5 and NX users.

Theorem’s latest Multi-CAD supports CATIA V5 R27 and NX 11

Our V20.2 CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to NX product is ready for release with a number of new product features and enhancements alongside general updates to improve stability and geometry quality.

Integrated within the CATIA V5 application, V20.2 supports from CATIA V5-6R2014 to CATIA V5-6R2017, as well as NX 9, 10 and 11, providing the user with the highest levels of interoperability with NX file assemblies.

This CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to NX product can be packaged as a uni-directional product CATIA V5>NX or NX>CATIA V5 or as a bi-directional translator.

Our CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to NX Product is based upon the Dassault Systemes XCAD infrastructure, allowing CATIA V5 users to incorporate parts and assemblies from NX, directly within the CATIA environment and removing the need for external translators. The application checks geometry for errors and validates the integrity of the data as it comes into CATIA. The beauty of the Dassault Multi-CAD architecture is the interlinking of the CATIA data and non-native data.

In V20.2 the Theorem User Interface is supported for both interactive and batch processing of translations external to the CATIA V5 application.

Using Multi-CAD offers a greater level of security and protection as the link to the source data is a direct link, without the need to leave the application or use 3rd party external applications. This also removes any errors that can occur from working with potentially old and out of date data.

Our strategic partnerships with Dassault Systemes and Siemens  ensures that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5, NX and Theorem’s Multi-CAD products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions to the CATIA V5 community.

Theorem Solutions to demonstrate Augmented (AR), Mixed (MR) and Virtual Reality (VR) App at Develop3D Live 2018

We are back at Develop3D Live this year and are excited to be exhibiting as a Gold sponsor. You can find us at stand #54/55 in the Mead Gallery.

Taking place on 20th March 2018 at Warwick Arts Centre, Warwick University, Develop3D Live is the perfect opportunity for us to demonstrate our latest Multi-Device Visualization Experience Application for:

  • Augmented Reality– Windows 10 and Android tablets and phones
  • Mixed Reality– Microsoft HoloLens
  • Virtual Reality– HTC Vive and Oculus Rift

Our Principal Technical Consultant Trevor Leeson will be speaking (10.50am in the Oculus Theatre) about how to start your Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality journey in Engineering and Manufacturing.

We’ve been helping engineering and manufacturing companies to leverage the value of their CAD and PLM data assets and processes for over 25 years and have recently released a data and device agnostic Visualization Experience application to utilize those data assets for Augmented, Mixed and Virtual reality devices – part of our Digital Realities product portfolio.

The Visualization Experience is a single application built from the ground up using a gaming graphics engine to produce stunning graphical representations of your data, which is a real game changer compared to the world of traditional CAD graphics and visualization.

By being data and device agnostic, the application allows you to use the same data, in the same visualization application, on ALL of the different low-cost devices. The application can be downloaded and installed on each device in minutes.

These low-cost devices are bringing an entirely new dimension to the way you can interact with your Engineering and Manufacturing data, democratising the use of AR, MR and VR and complementing the use of Caves and Powerwall’s by putting the technology in the hands of everybody.

Our Visualization Experience must be ‘experienced’ in order to realise the potential, and you will be able to have hands-on demonstrations on stand #54/55. Information on our Publish 3D – 3D PDF, Visualize 3D, Multi-CAD and CADverter products and solutions will also be available.

Theorem’s latest Visualize 3D CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE-JT product supports R27

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE to JT translator from our Visualize 3D product range, with a number of new product features and enhancements, alongside general updates to improve geometry quality.

V20.2 supports CATIA V6R2013x, 3DEXPERIENCE R2015x, R2016x and R2017x, along with Jtk. 10.0 This uni-directional product can be licensed with Theorem’s JT to CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE Visualize 3D product to create a bi-directional product.

Our Visualize 3D products are aimed at creating visualization data for users of digital mock-up, virtual reality, and or desktop applications, as well as data exchange.

Based upon the Dassault Systemes strategic XCAD technology, V20.2 enables the CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE user to create a JT representation of their data, and supports the translation of assembly structure, geometry, attributes, 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) and metadata. In doing so it facilitates Model Based Definition (MBD) processes containing sufficient information to manufacture and inspect products without the need for 2D engineering drawings.

Sharing CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE data using the neutral ISO standard JT format allows organisations to protect the intellectual property of their designs, while users can explore the shape more easily to understand the 3D definition. The IP protection can be is enhanced by restricting the JT representation to be tessellated data only.

Whilst visualization formats like JT help to secure Intellectual Property, at the same time they support a rich enough set of design data intelligence so that suppliers have all of the information required to complete their job.

Our strategic partnerships with Dassault Systemes and Siemens ensures that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, JT and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions to the CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE and JT communities.
