Theorem's Multi-CAD Solutions aid interactive design

Work interactively with native CAD Data from within your CATIA V5 design session

Staffordshire UK, 9 th January 2012 Theorem Solutions unique CATIA V5 'Multi-CAD' solution enables CATIA V5 users to work interactively with native cad data from within a CATIA V5 Design Session! 

Theorems latest CATIA V5 Multi-CAD Solutions are available on Theorem's CADverter 14 software supporting up to CATIA V5 R21 allowing users to access native NX AND Creo Parametric data from within an active CATIA V5 Design Session.

Theorem's Multi-CAD product removes both the cost and the complexity of working with both CATIA V5 data and non CATIA data on a single project

Developed to remove three major interoperability hurdles:

  • The need to have designers quit a design session to use external translators
  • Poor quality files missing vital geometry and attribute data
  • Use of the wrong version of a source file

Theorem's Multi-CAD solution enables CATIA V5 users to incorporate non-CATIA V5 parts and assemblies within the CATIA V5 environment - without external translators. Working within CATIA V5, the user simply selects the "Insert" tab at the top of the CATIA screen and moves to the "Existing component" selector on the ensuing drop down menu.

Multi-CAD is not only easier to use and more cost effective, it is also much more secure than a traditional 'translate and import' process, in which there is never a link between source and translated files.

This separation between CATIAV5 and imported, non- CATIA V5 data, when employing external translators, has always been a major problem for users, in that any changes to the NX or Creo data would not be updated in the CATIA V5 design. However, with Theorem's Multi-CAD product, CATIA V5 maintains and manages the links with the original files. Consequently, if there are changes within the non-CATIA V5 components or assemblies, these will be automatically reflected in CATIA V5 itself.

Theorem's CATIA V5 Multi-CAD tool now supports 64Bit processing so files can be as large and complex as required!

Developed using Dassault Systemes XCAD technology platform the creation of this ever advancing product ensures that the data imported is of the highest quality.

About Theorem Solutions

Theorem Solutions is a long established World leading supplier of services and products that solve a range of engineering data problems for the design and manufacturing communities. Formed in 1991, to address CAD data translation issues, Theorem has gone on to master this challenge and deliver cost saving solutions and consultancy to engineering and manufacturing OEMs and their suppliers throughout the world.

Theorem’s CADverter family of translators provide interoperability capabilities between all of the major CAD systems, providing a comprehensive exchange of data including geometry, attributes and product manufacturing information.

Partner to all major CAD vendors and with the use of vendor supported development environments Theorem’s CADverter products ensure that the data being processed conforms to the specific requirements of the various applications. In addition, as the vendors improve their respective propriety file formats, their supported development environments remove all risks associated with database changes and guarantee to keep pace with the changes they make.

Design, Engineering and Manufacturing companies use Theorem’s consultancy and products to automate and take cost out of collaborating with business partners and they range in complexity from one to one partnerships to solutions for supply chains with hundreds of companies.

As well as enabling interoperability between trading partners Theorem also provides process automation solutions that are used “in house” for tasks such as CAD data migration and long term archiving. These save time and money by streamlining and eliminating the labor intensive tasks involved in translating and managing engineering and manufacturing data, help protect IP and also enable the capture and retention of skills which might otherwise be lost through employee mobility or retirement.
