Theorem’s Advanced Publishing and CGR Add-ons enhance existing CATIA V5-Creo View product

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)

CGR Add-on

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.

Check out Theorem’s Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality Multi- Device Visualization Experience at Siemens PLM Europe 2017

We are pleased to be exhibiting as a Gold partner sponsor again at the 2017 Siemens PLM Europe Event, taking place in Berlin, Germany which runs from 23rd-25th October 2017.

We are really excited to have the opportunity to be showcasing our newly released Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality Visualization Experience App, part of our Digital Realities product portfolio that is presenting new and innovative ways of utilizing design and manufacturing data for the Siemens JT and NX user.

Demonstrations will be available on stand #20 of our Multi-Device Visualization Experience Application on the following low-cost devices:

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

The Multi-Device application is a single application built from the ground up to produce stunning graphical representations of your CAD and PLM data, which is a real game changer to the world of traditional CAD graphics and visualization.

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.

Using our ‘Optimisation and Experience Servers’, your data only needs to be optimised and prepared for use once. It then delivers the same Visualization Experience across all supported platforms helping to save money on data preparation, training and support. This allows you to use the same data, in the same visualization application, on ALL of the different devices. The application can be downloaded and installed on each device in minutes.

By making these low cost devices accessible, and democratising the use of AR, MR and VR technology, our Visualization Experiences are opening up an entirely new way to interact with Engineering and Manufacturing data up and down the supply chain by utilising existing CAD and PLM assets in all areas, including: Design, Manufacturing, Assembly, Training, Service, Showroom, Sales and Marketing, IoT and Digital Twin.

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.

Translate PMI data between CATIA V5 and Creo View with Theorem’s PMI Add-on

The CATIA V5 to Creo View Product is one of the Visualize 3D products offered by us. It 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.

For users of this product, there is a PMI Add-on that can be purchased to provide additional functionalities.

The PMI add-on allows FTA data to be translated between CATIA V5 and Creo View formats. The translation of 3D PMI data allows the output to be used directly in downstream assembly and manufacturing processes.

Key features include

  • Zoomable notes
  • Flat to screen text
  • Associative links between PMI, and PMI to geometry
  • Support of flippable text
  • Support for captures and views.

When used as an enabler for Model Based Engineering it reduces the need for the time consuming and costly creation of 2D drawings.

The translation of an accurate and rich model containing Model Based Definition gives an unambiguous view of the design to the extended enterprise. This speeds up the downstream processes, reduces errors and gives the downstream user more complete and accurate information.

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.

Theorem’s 3D PDF Add-on provides publishing capabilities for CATIA V5-Creo View Visualization products

A 3D PDF add on is now available to complement and enhance our CATIA V5 to Creo View visualization product, which is part of the Visualize 3D range. This 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.

The 3D PDF Add-on allows CATIA V5 data to be published to a 3D PDF, along with the original Creo View output, from the same CATIA V5 source. A 3D PDF gives users all of the features of a standard PDF but with the added, interactive 3D representation of the CATIA V5 data that can be manipulated, marked-up and annotated.

Features of a 3D PDF

Using the Adobe toolbar you are able to:

  • Explode views
  • Show attribute information
  • Manipulate 3D data using zoom, pan and rotate
  • View product structure tree and hide/show different items within that structure
  • Include attachments so that a complete technical data package can be created
  • Manually mark-up and annotation
  • Cross section parts
  • Change the graphics for the 3D data using Model Rendering
  • Change lighting, background colour, text colour etc.
  • Control of the 3D geometry content using tessellated representations.

A number of widgets, such as carousels, tables, check boxes and drop down lists are also available.

3D PDF also allows users to add additional documents as attachments to create Technical Data Packages, and secure their intellectual property by placing passwords and document rights access controls onto the document.

3D PDF is a great way of leveraging CAD and PLM assets, and a simple and cost effective way of sharing those assets with others.

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.
