Staffordshire UK, 23rd June 2012, Theorem's latest Universal CATIA translator for Creo Parametric (Pro/ENGINEER) automatically differentiates between CATIA V5 and V4 data when converting to Creo Parametric in a single operation.
The UNIVERSAL CATIA <> Creo Parametric CADverter is a direct database converter between both CATIA V4 and CATIA V5 modelling applications and the PTC Creo Parametric file format. It enables users to convert all forms of 3 Dimensional Mechanical Design Geometry and Assembly data, together with system defined attribute information and colour information, between these systems.
This single translator accepts all combinations of CATIA V4 or CATIA V5 data and processes it directly into the PTC Creo Parametric file format.
It doesn't matter if the CATIA V4 data is in EXPORT, MODEL, SESSION or CATIA V4 Assembly Modeller format; they are all seamlessly processed from CATIA to the Creo Parametric file format.
When processing CATIA V5 data, the same translator is capable of processing all combinations of CATProduct or CATPart files or even CATProducts that include references to native CATIA V4 models.
Theorem’s Universal CATIA <> Creo Parametric CADverter satisfies all requirements for processing any format of CATIA data into the Creo Parametric file format or outputting either CATIA V4 or V5 data from conversion of an Creo Parametric file.
To improve the performance of an overall translation process, the user may select subsets of the input CATIA data to be processed. Focusing the translator to process only those specific geometry elements required reduces the overall time taken to process the data and eliminates the need to post process the output data.
Providing a complete solution within a single product, Theorem's Universal CATIA to Creo 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.
Most single version translators are unable to accommodate such shared format assemblies, Theorem's 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.
Theorems Universal CATIA CADverter is a specifically designed translator supporting both 32bit and 64bit processing to CATIA V5 R21 and Creo 1.0 (Creo 2.0 coming soon)
Priced as a single translator with a single maintenance cost the latest offering from Theorem resolves two data issues with a single solution saving 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 labour 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.
