Leuven, Belgium, Thursday, March 09, 2006 ¡V Capvidia continues to provide the very best solution for SolidWorks users who need to translate CATIA data by keeping pace with new releases of CATIA V5 revisions. This new release supports all CATIA files up to revision 16. In addition, it also provides some new and powerful features. FormatWorks is the first and only Certified Gold Product for SolidWorks users who need to translate CATIA data correctly and reliably to and from SolidWorks.
New CATIA V5 Enhancements
In addition to supporting the latest version of CATIA, FormatWorks also has some new features specifically for translation of CATIA V5 data:

1.        Preview ¡V Open a CATIA V5 file and view the data and project tree before translation. Supports all functions of a 3D Viewer such as pan, zoom, and rotate.
2.        Select - Select separate parts for translation directly from the project tree to be translated into SolidWorks. This allows you to manage large assemblies and provide efficient translation.
3.        Translate ¡V Selected parts are translated into SolidWorks with the automatic repair and healing technology from Capvidia to provide quality data to SolidWorks.

Feature Translation

FormatWorks2006 now provides support for automatic feature recognition for all formats. SolidWorks features such as holes, cuts, chamfers, fillets, extrusions, ribs are identified in the translation process. The imported models are easily editable in SolidWorks.
Improved Performance

The improved repair and healing process is now 30% faster compared with the previous versions. The BREP based translation provides the most reliable data exchange. Combined with the rich set of manual repair functions, FormatWorks2006 provides the most optimal data translation solution for SolidWorks users.

Batch translation

The batch translation module is offered as option for users requiring automatic translation of large data sets. The batch mode features control mechanism orchestrating the data translation process. All operations are automatically logged. In case of a crash the batch mode automatically restarts all processes including the SolidWorks. The problematic file causing the crash is flagged in the log file and the process continues further without any user interaction. The batch mode provides an ideal solution for users translating large sets of native CATIA data.
