Latest CADverter products support MBD processing as standard

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

When working with different suppliers as part of the design and manufacturing process, there will always be a requirement to exchange design data back and forth. However, the CAD systems used by different suppliers may be different to the ones you use.

So how do you go about exchanging data if it’s in a different format?

Theorem CADverter products offer the capability to receive, create, work with or share CAD data that is not native to your own company. CADverter allows direct translation between many of the major CAD systems as well as standards based formats such as STEP.

The latest CADverter range of products from Theorem now support the processing of Model Based Definition (MBD) information as standard.

This is helping to streamline the manufacturing process into a paper free process by producing an information rich 3D CAD model that fully defines a product/component ready for manufacture.

CADverter products translate assembly structure, geometry, attribute, and where available 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) (FTA) (GD&T) and Metadata between CAD systems. As modern 3D CAD applications allow for the insertion of 3D dimensions and annotations, as well as other product information within the 3D digital data set, for both components and assemblies, the risk of error is greatly reduced as all information required to manufacture is also translated to the new format helping to remove the need for the more traditional 2D drawing creation process.

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?
