Multi-CAD solution simplifies multi-CAD application design

Monday, September 28th, 2015

When developing large and complex products such as cars or aeroplanes, you can be faced with the need to use numerous CAD systems in-house, on a single product design and manufacturing task

Whilst this design process may be an efficient way to manufacture these types of products it can cause problems when the CAD data needs to be exchanged by those involved in the design process who may not be using the same CAD software. CAD to CAD and CAD to Visualization translators are available, but what if the OEM uses CATIA but needs to also access CAD data from NX, CREO or JT systems directly from within their CATIA design environment without the need for external translation tools?

Multi-CAD-10

Theorem have come up with a  Multi-CAD solution that  allows designers and engineers to do just that. Based upon the Dassault Systemes XCAD infrastructure, it allows CATIA V5 users to incorporate parts and assemblies from the other CAD systems, such as NX and Creo, within the CATIA environment without having to use external translators. It pulls the files directly into CATIA and uses the existing V5 commands of “Insert existing component”, “file open” and “file save as”. It then checks the geometry for errors and validates the integrity of the data as it comes into CATIA. The beauty of the solution is the interlinking of the CATIA and foreign CAD data.

Engineering and Design departments can benefit from using Publish 3D

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

In every product lifecycle process design data and product information need to be shared. Almost every department within an organisation (with the exceptions of HR and Accounting) will need to discuss the product with someone at some point along the process, whether it’s with another department or external suppliers.

It used to be that engineers who designed products in CAD systems would struggle to share the CAD data with those in other departments, as specialist training and software systems would often be needed, which could be expensive, but the ability to share 3D product data with non CAD users both internally and externally is important because it reduces ambiguity and therefore aids communication.

Most of us are familiar with receiving documents in a PDF format, such as phone bills, tickets and brochures, and then viewing them in Adobe Reader, which is installed on pretty much every device as standard. So why not find a way to send the CAD data in a similar format that is as easily accessible?
