Theorem’s latest Visualize 3D solution for SolidWorks-JT supports SolidWorks 2018

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest version of our Visualize 3D SolidWorks-JT product.

V21.3 supports SolidWorks 2016, 2017 and 2018 along with JT 10.

Features and enhancements in this release include the use of Save As from within SolidWorks to create JT output-providing the user with a consistent method of generating output from within SolidWorks.

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

Using JT with additional 3D PMI data as part of a Model Based Definition process allows the user to reduce the overall design costs associated with the creation of conventional 2D drawings.

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

Enabling SolidWorks users to create high quality JT files allows them to share JT data with their customers and suppliers, facilitating collaboration.

SolidWorks and JT data can now be further utilised in Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality by using our Visualization Experiences App for Digital Realities.

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

Publish Creo data into an interactive 3D PDF with Theorem’s Publish 3D

We are pleased to announce the release of the latest Creo-3D PDF publisher from the Publish 3D product range.

Our Publish 3D 3D PDF products enable the publishing of 3D Creo data directly from within the design application in to an interactive 3D PDF document format, or an HTML5 output.

V21.3 supports Creo 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 and has a number of new features and enhancements, including:

  • The processing of display Curves shown in a Combined State. When displaying a layer state within a combined view, generally only the solid and annotations are processed to PDF. This will also process any curves which are needed for downstream activities (engraving or welding positions etc.)
  • Support for the translations of Offset Cross Sections, which are used to help simplify the component display.
  • Improvements to Layer Visibility and Combination states, which help improve the way geometry is displayed, ensuring less confusion for the person viewing it.
  • Addition of UI Creo Read Instance argument, giving the user more options when processing the file. This will help the user present the pdf display in a manner suitable to them.

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

The Publish 3D product supports Model Based Definition (MBD) and 3D annotations and dimensions (PMI) from Creo 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, the technology is easily integrated and can effectively become the protocol for easy, seamless document creation and communication.

Our strategic partnership with PTC ensures that there is parallel development between the latest releases of Creo, and Theorem’s Publish 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide publishing solutions for the Creo 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.

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.
