Theorem’s latest Visualize 3D Inventor to Creo View Adapter supports Inventor 2019

We are pleased to announce the release of our V21.3 Inventor to Creo View Visualize 3D adapter supporting Inventor 2017, 2018 and 2019, and up to and including Creo View 4.2.

This product has been developed using the Autodesk Inventor Development Environment and translates the latest Inventor data into the Creo View format. It can work with just Inventor View (a free application) needed to be installed, so a full license of Inventor is not required.

The Inventor to Creo View Adapter can also be integrated into a Windchill environment allowing Inventor managed data to be published and visualized on demand. As the Creo View data output is then synchronized with the Inventor source, an accurate up-to-date, version of the design is always available, therefore reducing costly errors.

Our Visualize 3D products are aimed at creating visualization data for users of digital mock-up, virtual reality or desktop applications and support the translation of assembly structure, geometry and attributes.

Our strategic partnerships with Autodesk and PTC  ensures that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of Inventor, Creo View and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide data solutions to the Inventor and PTC communities.

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.

Creo View data can now be created and shared independently of CATIA V5 with Theorem’s Visualize 3D solution

We are pleased to announce the latest release of Visualize 3D 21.2 for CATIA V5i > Creo View.

Our CATIA V5i > Creo View solution allows CATIA users, who have limited or no access to a licensed install of CATIA V5, to create and share Creo View data without needing access to a CATIA V5 license.

Licenses of vendor specific CAD applications can be expensive resources to purchase and also to maintain, so 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. The CATIA V5i to Creo View product is the ideal solution for CATIA V5 users who have to supply native 3D mechanical design data in the lightweight Creo View format to customers and suppliers when limited resources are available.

Our CATIA V5i > Creo View is a uni-directional converter between the Dassault Systems’ CATIA V5 modelling application and the Creo View product viewer from PTC. It has been developed using the Spatial (Dassault) Interop Development Environment and supports all CATIA V5 revisions up to and including V5-6R2018, as well as up to Creo View 4.2.

Our strategic partnership with Spatial (Dassault) and PTC ensures that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5 and Creo View, and Theorem’s Visualize 3D products, allowing us to continue to provide quality and robust data solutions for CATIA V5 and Creo View users.

Theorem will be showcasing experiences for Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality at PTC LiveWorx 2018

We will be at this year’s PTC LiveWorx in Boston, USA, from 17th– 20th June 2018.

As a long standing PTC solution partner, the team from Theorem will be there on stand #319 to showcase our latest PLM productivity enhancing solutions for the Creo and Creo View user.

Our widely used Data Exchange and Supply Chain Collaboration solutions for Creo and Creo View are complimented by our 3D PDF publishing and Visualization tools that all support MBD for downstream processes.

You can now also utilize those same CAD and PLM assets in the latest Augmented (AR), Mixed (MR) and Virtual (VR) Reality devices with our data and device agnostic Visualization Experience Application – part of our ‘Digital Realities’ product suite.

Our Publish 3D – 3D PDF suite enables you to publish your Creo data to interactive 3D PDF documents that can be shared internally and externally throughout your supply chain.

Whereas our Multi-CAD plugin allows you to insert Creo files into your CATIA session, and work on them, whilst maintaining associativity in CATIA back to the original Creo formats.

If you need your CAD assets in a lightweight data format, then our Visualize 3D product suite focuses specifically on the direct translation of 3D CAD data from mechanical CAD systems for the purpose of Visualization.

All of which can be reused and optimised for ‘Digital Realities’. At stand #319 you will be able to ‘experience’ our recently released Visualization Experience Application, which currently runs on the following devices:

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

We will also be holding a ‘Starting your AR, MR and VR Journey’ session in which we will be discussing how engineering and manufacturing organisations can implement Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality technologies into their workflows.

The experience utilises existing CAD and PLM data assets and can also merge data from ERP, MES, CRM and proprietary databases, adding further value to the Digital Realities application which is opening up an entirely new way to interact with Engineering and Manufacturing data up and down the supply chain, in all areas, including: Design, Manufacturing, Assembly, Training, Service and Digital Twin.

We recently hosted a webinar on the topic which is available to view upon registration:
