Simplifying the manufacturing process by supporting Model Based Definition

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

As modern 3D CAD applications allow for the creation of 3D dimensions and annotations (PMI/FTA/GD&T) along with multiple model views and layouts and other product information within the 3D CAD data set for both components and assemblies, the risk of error is greatly reduced. Now that all of the product definition information can be created using these 3D Model Based Definition (MBD) methods, an alternative and completely digital method replacing the traditional 2D drawing creation process is achievable.

Theorem’s Visualize 3D and Publish 3D suite of products, along with the latest versions of CADverter and Multi-CAD provide improved support for information supporting the Model Based Definition (MBD) process, helping to streamline manufacturing into a paper free process by publishing an information rich 3D CAD model that fully defines a product.

Theorem products get a rebrand

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

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.

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.
