Check out Theorem’s latest Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality Experiences at Siemens PLM Europe 2018

We are looking forward to exhibiting as a Gold partner sponsor again at Siemens PLM Europe 2018, taking place in Berlin, Germany from 29th-31st October 2018.

We are taking this opportunity to showcase our newly launched Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality Experiences for Visualization, Design Reviews, Manufacturing Build and Factory Layout- part of our Digital Realities product portfolio-that are offering new and innovative ways of utilizing design and manufacturing data for the Siemens JT and NX user.

Our Digital Realities product range is a suite of client/server based applications that streamline the delivery and interactive manipulation of engineering CAD and PLM data on AR, MR and VR devices.

Demonstrations of the experiences will be available at stand #25 on the following devices:

  • Augmented Reality (AR) – Windows 10, iOS and Android Tablets and Smartphones
  • Mixed Reality (MR) – Microsoft HoloLens
  • Virtual Reality (VR) – HTC Vive and Oculus Rift

The experience utilises existing CAD and PLM data assets from NX and JT, and can also merge data from ERP, MES, CRM and proprietary databases which adds further value to the Digital Realities application.

Engineering and Manufacturing businesses are increasingly looking into the benefits of using AR, MR and VR to improve processes and collaboration, cut costs and make access to data easier. Digital Realities is helping to make that possible with a single application.

To complement our Digital Realities experiences we have also launched our Visualization Pipeline technology, which is a server based technology that rapidly processes CAD data into a wide variety of formats for use in 3D Engines – Unity and Unreal, Photorealistic Rendering or AR/MR/VR tools, applications, and with lightweight viewers.

You will also be able to find out more about our Publish 3D suite which offers a 3D PDF publishing solution for organisations who design with NX or who want to extend the use of their JT data to create interactive 3D documentation – 3D PDF’s.

As a long standing Siemens PLM solution partner and Vendor Member of the JT Open initiative our latest productivity enhancing solutions for 3D PDF document publishing and Digital Realities portfolio are revolutionizing the way in which NX and JT users can interact with their CAD and Visualization data.

Create and Share JT data independently of CATIA V5 with Theorem’s Visualize 3D

We are pleased to announce the latest release V21.2 of our CATIA V5i to JT visualization solution – part of the Visualize 3D product suite.

Our CATIA V5i- JT is a uni-directional direct database converter between the Dassault Systems’ V5 modelling application and the JT file format used by the Siemens VisMockUp visualization product. It can be packaged with our JT-CATIA V5i to create a bi-directional product. It enables users to convert all forms of 3Dimensional mechanical design geometry and assembly data, together with system defined attribute and colour information, between the CATIA V5 and JT systems.

Our CATIA V5i-JT visualization solution allows CATIA users to continue working whilst reading or writing JT data without needing access to their CATIA V5 licenses.

Licenses of vendor specific CAD applications are expensive resources to purchase and to maintain. It doesn’t help when they are tied up for long periods of time on more design activities or when there aren’t enough available licenses to be able to multi-task different design projects.

It has been developed using the Spatial (Dassault Systemes) Interop Development Environment and supports all CATIA V5 revisions from V5 R15 to V5-6R2018, as well as all versions of JT. The new Theorem UI is supported for both interactive and batch processing.

New features and enhancements to the latest version include:

  • The ability to process associated attribute data- non-graphical data such as materials and costs- and write it out into JT, providing a broader set of information that supports the CAD information.
  • The ability to control the processing of properties by use of a property mapping file. This enables the user to manipulate and filter which attribute data is exported, protecting any IP data.
  • An option to report mass property values into the progress file for review. Values such as volume, surface area and centre of gravity are now being reported in an audit log, which can be used to validate the conversion process.

Our CATIA V5i-JT solution helps to increase the productivity of CATIA users by saving time whilst at the same time freeing up expensive CAD licenses.

Our strategic partnerships with Spatial (Dassault Systemes) and Siemens ensures that the latest releases of CATIA V5, JT and Theorem’s Visualise 3D products, allow us to continue to provide quality and robust data solutions to the CAD and Visualization communities.

Publish JT data directly into interactive 3D PDF’s with Theorem’s Publish 3D

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest JT to 3D PDF product from the Publish 3D range, with new and improved product features and enhancements, and support for JT 10.x.

Our Publish 3D – 3D PDF products enable the publishing of JT data directly into the interactive 3D PDF document format.

The published PDF document contains embedded interactive 3D representations of the native JT data (within pre-defined templates), offering greater levels of Intellectual Property (IP) protection, with support for separate passwords to control the editing of the 3D PDF output.

New enhancements for V21.1:

  • The ability to add images into tables which, rather than use text to describe individual parts in a BOM table, can be used to make clearer which parts are in question. Using images also makes a template more visually appealing for the end user.
  • When creating a new template, all images can be saved to a single directory and one command used to import them all, rather than having to import each individual image.
  • More dynamic and customizable templates can now be created with improved CSS support for active BOM tables and highlighted parts.

Our Unified Interface (UI) provides the opportunity for multiple PDF publishing from a single data source using the selection of ready-made templates, or the option of Theorem consultancy services to create bespoke templates.  The UI helps the development and streamlining of translation and downstream processes by allowing engineering data to be filtered, viewed, interrogated, manipulated and translated interactively or in batches with the ability to publish user specific documentation.

The Publish 3D product supports Model Based Definition (MBD) and 3D annotations and dimensions (PMI) from JT into the 3D PDF format.

Anybody with access to the freely available Adobe Reader®, either on a PC, tablet or smartphone can access the interactive 3D data and are able to view, mark up and interrogate the document without the use of specialist CAD software. As 3D PDF is an ISO standard (ISO 24517-1 (PDF/E), the technology can be easily integrated and can effectively become the protocol for easy, seamless document creation and communication.

Through a partnership with Siemens, we can ensure that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of JT and Publish 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide 3D publishing solutions for the JT community.

Theorem’s latest Visualize 3D- CATIA V5-Creo View Adapter supports CATIA V5 R28

We are pleased to announce the release of our latest Visualize 3D Adapter for CATIA V5 to Creo View users supporting up to and including CATIA V5-6R2014-2018.

For those that need to work with, or share, visualization data as part of design and manufacturing processes, the Theorem Visualize 3D suite of products offers direct translation of 3D data for the purpose of Visualization.

Our Visualize 3D brand supports lightweight data formats with a focus specifically on the direct translation of 3D CAD data from mechanical CAD systems for the purpose of Visualization, enabling users to work with and share data directly between different CAD and Visualization applications and are aimed at creating visualization data for users of digital mock-up, desktop and tablet viewing applications.

Using Visualize 3D as a direct conversion tool between CATIA V5 to Creo View reduces processing time, simplifies integration and retains accuracy of the model.

V21.1 now supports up to and including CATIA V5-6R2014-2018 and Creo View 4.2.

V21.1 can be used independently of WindChill, or integrated into WindChill, allowing CATIA V5 managed data to be published and visualized on demand. As the Creo View data output is then synchronized with the CATIA source, an accurate up-to-date version of the design is always available, reducing costly errors.

The CATIA V5 to Creo View suite helps to secure Intellectual Property, but at the same time supports 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 PTC ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5 and Creo View, and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions for the CAD community.
