CADfix Import Functionality Expanded to Include Native Pro/ENGINEER

MILFORD, OH; JUNE 9, 2003 – ITI TranscenData, the product data interoperability business of International TechneGroup Incorporated (ITI), announces that CADfix version 5.2 will provide users with the ability to import and export native files directly from Pro/ENGINEER.

“Native Pro/ENGINEER access is an important enhancement to CADfix,” stated Don Hemmelgarn, President of ITI TranscenData. “This, and other improvements available within version 5.2, further solidify CADfix as the leading CAD model repair and translation solution available today. Now, those who rely on the effective use of Pro/ENGINEER models can take advantage of CADfix’s healing functionality to provide significant productivity gains while decreasing time to market and our existing customers have the option of incorporating native Pro/E data in their workflow.”

“PTC and ITI TranscenData have a long standing relationship based on product data interoperability solutions,” explained Bill Berutti, PTC’s senior vice president, strategy and product marketing. “CADfix now employs GRANITE´┐Ż based interoperability to provide PTC customers with additional options for sharing model data, free of the problems typically introduced when data is translated to or exchanged with heterogeneous downstream applications. We are pleased to expand our relationship with ITI TranscenData in order to bring this capability to the growing community of CADfix and Pro/ENGINEER users.”

Improved Automation
CADfix 5.2 represents a new level in automated CAD model healing. ITI TranscenData has analyzed the most common causes of translation failures and built the solutions into the CADfix 5.2 Wizard, resulting in dramatic improvements in the success of the initial automatic translation pass. The automated Wizard allows users to define translation parameters via a simple graphical interface. Translation paths that “fail” result in the deployment of interactive repair tools, providing the user with the ability to continue improving the data.
