Elysium Announces CATIA To/From Rhino Translator

Solids, surfaces and more directly translated between both systems

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., December 18, 2003 - Elysium Inc., a leading global provider of digital design data exchange software, today announced the CATIA V4 to Rhinoceros translator. This translator runs as a plug-in application in Rhino 3D and reads/writes CATIA V4 files directly. CATIA V4 does not have to be installed on your system.

Rhino 3D is a NURBS-based modeling tool that allows for effective origination of design for manufactured products. The technology is owned and developed by Robert McNeel & Associates, and has more than 60,000 users. The new translator from Elysium will translate solid and surface models from CATIA V4 model and CATexp files to and from Rhino 3D. CATIA V4 solid entities translate to solid entities, and surfaces are translated to surfaces or poly surfaces in Rhino 3D. In addition, the translation tool will allow referencing of CATIA files within Rhino so that changes to the base data can be accurately reflected in the Rhino design data.

“10% of Rhino users also rely on CATIA and need enterprise-level interoperability between the two,” stated Ken Tashiro, COO, Elysium Inc. “Moving design information between systems while maintaining integrity of the design is a key aspect of this translator – and better, it works!”

“Elysium’s focus on large customer accounts and their robust requirements mean that we can provide high-end Rhino users with the high end translation quality they need,” said Bob McNeel, founder and president of Robert McNeel & Associates. “Having a product with extensive healing capabilities based on Elysium’s many years of experience is a great addition to the Rhino partner product lineup.”

In addition to surfaces and solids, the translator supports curves, points, and mock-up solids. Join information between entities in Rhino 3D and layering structures are maintained through translation. Native Rhino 3D surfaces and solids can be imported directly into CATIA V4.

The translator is now available via Elysium at www.elysiuminc.com/Rhino/Rhino.html.
