Theorem’s latest Multi-CAD supports CATIA V5 R28

Our V21.3 CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to JT product has been released with a number of new product features and enhancements, alongside general updates to improve stability and geometry quality.

Integrated within the CATIA V5 application V21.3 supports from CATIA V5-6R2015 to CATIA V5-6R2018, and all versions of JT, up to and including 10.0, providing the user with the highest levels of interoperability with JT file assemblies.

This CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to JT product is uni-directional product but can be packaged with Theorem’s JT to CATIA V5 Multi-CAD product to become a bi-directional translator.

New features and enhancements in V21.3 include:

  • CATIA V5 transparency replicated in JT output-The benefit of maintaining an equivalent view of the CATIA V5 data in JT saves time and money that would otherwise be used to either support additional communication between CAD users and non CAD users, or alternatively increases costs of deploying expensive CAD licenses to downstream teams.
  • Improvements to PMI/geometry cross highlighting in JT output-Having an ability to highlight specifically which pieces of geometry are related to which dimension ensures that the information is unambiguous, leading to a reduction in costly reworking’s of outputs when the information is misunderstood. Consequently potential costly quality issues are also avoided.
  •  CATIA V5 Section Views defined within FTA Captures are now exported to the JT file- Having a capability of retaining these section views in the JT output again ensures that the person reviewing the information as a clear understanding of the definition. This all goes towards avoiding costly mistakes that occur when the information isn’t clearly understandable.

 

Our CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to JT Product is based upon the Dassault Systemes XCAD infrastructure, allowing CATIA V5 users to incorporate parts and assemblies from JT, 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.

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, JT and Theorem’s Multi-CAD products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions to the CATIA V5 community.

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.
