Theorem products get a rebrand
October 27th, 2015 by Katharine Edmonds
Due to the nature of design in manufacturing companies, there is no one standard CAD, Visualization or Publishing system. Manufacturers and their supply chains often have different systems in place, sometimes within the same four walls of the company. Each of these has particular nuances and they store their design information in widely differing formats.
Theorem’s extensive product portfolio has undergone a complete rebrand with a view to differentiate products into new families that simplify and streamline the process for the user to select the correct solution for their needs, whether that’s CAD to CAD, CAD to STEP, CAD to Visualization or CAD to Publishing.
As technology has evolved and the performance capabilities of computers has dramatically improved, it has enabled a much wider set of use cases and applications to be commercially and technically viable. However, these different use cases and applications require different types of 3D data in order to work. Sometimes the differences in the 3D data are subtle, in other cases the differences are significant.
Translation is the enabler that allows all of the different types of 3D data to be created. Theorem’s products provide the means to do this and it’s not always a simple process.
Theorem’s new brands are now defined as follows:
The CADverter brand and flagship of Theorem Solutions for over 20 years has a product focus specifically on the direct translation of 3D data to or from an alternate mechanical CAD or Standards Based format.
CADverter products translate assembly structure, geometry, attributes, and where available 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) (FTA) (GD&T) and Metadata, between the worlds’ leading mechanical CAD/CAM systems.
In certain products we provide support for the processing of Model Based Definition (MBD) information from native CAD in to a variety of CAD formats; Theorem’s high quality, cost effective CADverter solutions help to solve the issue of working with and sharing incompatible data formats.
When developing large and complex products such as cars or aeroplanes, designers can be faced with the need to use numerous CAD systems in-house, on a single product design and manufacturing task.
Theorem’s Multi-CAD application system is a low cost and efficient solution to the problems that can be encountered when a CATIA V5 or V6 user needs to work on projects where other CAD or Visualization data needs to be regularly worked on inside of CATIA. Multi-CAD ensures the integrity of the CAD data by taking away the need for external translation.
Multi-CAD products support the introduction of assembly structure, geometry, attributes, 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) (FTA) (GD&T) and Metadata from foreign CAD and Visualization data with additional support for the processing of Model Based Definition (MBD) information from native CAD.
Theorem’s Publish 3D suite of products enable the creation of documents enriched with 3D content directly from the native source CAD or JT data.
The products focus specifically on the publishing of 3D mechanical CAD and Visualization data into an interactive document format.
Publish 3D is all about the creation of documents for distribution containing interactive 3D content. In simple terms it is a publishing solution for organisations who design with mechanical CAD or who want to extend the use of their visualization data to create interactive 3D documentation that can be shared amongst those within the organisation and supply chain who may not have access to, or understanding of native CAD data.
Publish 3D products support the translation of assembly structure, geometry, attributes, 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) (FTA) (GD&T) and Metadata between the worlds’ leading mechanical CAD/CAM systems, and in doing so facilitates Model Based Definition (MBD) processes.
If you find that you need to work with or share visualization data as part of your design and manufacturing process, Theorem’s Visualize 3D suite of products offer direct translation of 3D data from mechanical CAD systems for the purpose of Visualization.
Theorem’s Visualize 3D products are aimed at creating visualization data for users of digital mockup, virtual reality or desktop applications. The Visualize 3D brand supports the lightweight data formats: 3DXML, Creo View and JT.
Visualize 3D products support the translation of assembly structure, geometry, attributes, 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) (FTA) (GD&T) and Metadata between the worlds’ leading mechanical CAD/CAM systems, and in doing so facilitates Model Based Definition (MBD) processes.
Theorem’s Process Automation solutions manage and automate the process of creating, sharing and exchanging data with suppliers and customers to aid the collaboration process. The solutions manage high volumes of data transfer and translation to and from varying formats for different design disciplines or document creation, streamlining workflows and eliminating repetitive manual work whilst at that same time enforcing consistency.
Theorem’s process automation suite of products allow users to automate, schedule, monitor and control the often repetitive but time-consuming process of translation and document creation along with its exchange. This frees up expensive human resources to focus on areas where they can add more value to their company.
It is Theorem’s belief that there is no one single solution for collaboration. The right solution is set by the individual use case and not by product. No one product can answer all data exchange issues.
As an independent company, with strong, long standing business relationships with all major CAD vendors, Theorem offers best in class data exchange solutions to meet many use case requirements for organizations of all sizes, which is reflected in the new brands.
