Native and Mixed CATIA V5 and V4 Data Automatically Converted to JT format
Staffordshire UK, January 17th 2012, Theorem's latest Universal CATIA translator for JT both streamlines and simplifies data translation and collaborative working, by automatically differentiating between CATIA V5 and V4 data files and converting them to JT in a single operation.
CATIA and JT are widely used in many long-term design projects and it is not unusual for design and manufacturing companies to employ both CATIA V4 and CATIA V5 on production work. Other supply chain partners may operate JT, resulting in collaborative projects that can involve a mix of two CATIA file formats as well as JT data. A further complication is that CATIA V5 assemblies may incorporate embedded CATIA V4 files - a fact that might not become apparent until there is a need to undertake data translation.
Providing a complete solution within a single product, Theorem's Universal CATIA to JT CADverter eliminates the need for users to identify which version of CATIA the target data is supplied in. It not only identifies and converts mixed native CATIA V5 and V4 files automatically, but also recognizes and translates CATIA V5 assemblies that include embedded V4 data - all without operator input.
Because most single version translators are unable to accommodate such shared format assemblies, Theorem's new Universal CATIA CADverter more than exceeds the capabilities of separate products - as even a combination of stand-alone V5 and V4 translators will fail to meet all user requirements.
Operation of the new CADverter could not be easier or more effective. For example, when working on a batch of files via the command line interface, users simply direct Theorem's new translator at a folder containing mixed CATIA models and assemblies, indicate the translation parameters to be applied, specify the destination folder and press enter. They can then move on to other tasks while the Universal CATIA CADverter for JT translates the target files without the need for any further operator interaction.
Theorems Universal CATIA CADverter is a specifically designed translator supporting both 32bit and 64bit processing to CATIA V5 R21 and all versions of JT. Priced as a single translator with a single maintenance cost the latest offering from Theorem saves time, effort and money!

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.
