Theorem’s latest CADverter supports CATIA V5 R28 and NX 12

We are pleased to announce the release of their latest CADverter for CATIA V5 > NX users.

This uni-directional CADverter can also be licensed with our NX > CATIA V5 CADverter to create a bi-directional translator.

Integrated within the CATIA application, V21.2 supports all revisions of CATIA V4, CATIA V5-6R2015- V5-6R2018 and NX 10, NX 11 and NX 12.

New features and enhancements in V21.2 include

  • Improved processing of Instance Colours to enhance the quality for users
  • Interactive processing enhanced to allow importing of CGR files into NX, enabling users of CGR to take advantage of the interactive processing method.
  • Support for processing NX containing subordinate JT files, which enables users of combined NX / JT assemblies to process them in one translation to CATIA V5, making it more efficient for users of this type of data.
  • Improvements to the processing of PMI view associations, so when PMI is read from CATIA V5 it is processed to the correct views in NX.


CADverter products translate assembly structure, geometry, attributes and, where available, 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) and Metadata between CATIA V5 and NX, supporting Model Based Definition (MBD) processes.

The aim of the CADverter is to allow the user to translate any data that they have held in a CATIA format and make it usable in NX for various use cases, whether the downstream user wants a lightweight reference part to model around, or a precise copy of the data translated to allow measurement and editing of translated models.

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