FARMINGTON HILLS, MICHIGAN, MARCH 11, 2003 – CADCAM-E, a leading provider of CAD/CAM Engineering Services & Data Translation Products, announces the release of its Inventor Enterprise CAD Interoperability Suite. The suite consists of three modules, CIMINV-Cat to translate CATIA data, CIMINV-UG to translate Unigraphics data and CIMINV-Pro to translate Pro/Engineer data into Inventor. All three modules run within Autodesk Inventor Version 6.0 and do not require access to CATIA, Unigraphics or Pro/Engineer systems.
CIMINV-CAT translates CATIA Version 4.x Export and Model files which can either be in EBCDIC or ASCII format, CIMINV-UG translates uncompressed Unigraphics files up to Version NX, and CIMINV-Pro translates Pro/Engineer files up to Version 2001. All 3D data, including CATIA, Unigraphics and Pro/Engineer solids are supported. Products include translation filters to enable selective data translation.
The three modules can be purchased separately, or together in a specially priced suite. All CADCAM-E products are available for download and immediate use on a pay-per-use basis with a major credit card from CADCAM-E’s web site
www.cadcam-e.com. Permanent-use licenses are also available.
“CADCAM-E’s Inventor Enterprise CAD Interoperability Suite will be of significant value to Inventor users in the Automotive and Aerospace supply chains who receive data in CATIA, UG and Pro/E formats that are used by their OEM’s.” said CADCAM-E’s CEO Kumar Rajan. “These bundled solutions will enable suppliers to use their system of choice - Inventor, without having to worry about data exchange issues normally associated with IGES and STEP translators. Additionally, CADCAM-E’s service group stands ready to help suppliers translate complicated feature-based models with parametric history, bulk data conversions as well as 2D data into Inventor that cannot be cost-effectively automated.”
CADCAM-E also offers a wide range of seamless conversion solutions between CATIA, Pro/Engineer, Unigraphics, SolidWorks, and Mastercam systems. Parasolid, IGES and STEP standards-based translators are also available.
