Theorem Multi-CAD CADverter for NX Released
New multi CAD PLM collaboration tool for V5/V6 and NX users.
Monday 16th June – Catia V5/V6 and Siemens NX users will undoubtedly be familiar with the challenges of successfully collaborating concurrently with internal and external teams using different CAD and PLM systems. Successful development depends on a seamless two-way exchange of data and a requirement to conform to company PLM procedures, data validation and engineering best practices. Multi-CAD has been developed specifically for V5 and V6 users by Theorem Solutions to improve the process of associative design collaboration between CATIA and NX users.
Multi-CAD is a V5/V6 plugin that improves collaboration by enabling the CATIA user to work interactively with NX data directly from within a CATIA design environment. This clever application also checks geometry for errors and validates the integrity of the data as it comes into Catia. Multi-CAD then tracks changes and updates the master model as each sub-assembly is developed. The beauty of the solution is the interdependency of the NX and CATIA files are completely associative and allows the user to then output the changes back as an NX file or virtually any other major CAD format.
Multi-CAD CADverter is streamlining the product lifecycle management process.
This level of associativity pushes the collaborative possibilities further than ever before by seamlessly integrating into PLM systems. Design changes in non CATIA formats maintain their associativity inside V5 or V6 and alerts the user each time a part is updated or saved to the PLM system. Cross platform collaboration has now become a lot easier to manage and will surely be the way forward for all high end projects where the Catia user has to design in context around assemblies (possibly still in development) by NX users.
Supporting all types of NX data, Theorem Solutions’ CATIA V5 and V6 Multi-CAD CADverter for NX, uses proven products and validation technology and will handle tessellated and precise data as well as product manufacturing information. Theorem’s Multi-CAD solution can be run on the fly from within the V5 or V6 interface or batch processed for improved efficiency with large volumes of data for tighter integration and closer associativity.
