RAMSEY, NEW JERSEY, JULY 1, 2003 – CADCAM-E, a leading provider of CAD/CAM Engineering Services & Data Translation Products, announces the release of CATIA Version 4 Translator for the eMPower suite of products from Tecnomatix. This is the first in a series of new products resulting from the new partnership announced between CADCAM-E and Tecnomatix Technologies, the market leader in Manufacturing Production Management (MPM) solutions.
CATeMP is a standalone Windows (NT, 2000, XP) product that translates CATIA V4 .model and EXPORT format files to eMPower format files. All CATIA V4 3D space entities are mapped to equivalent eMPower entities. Product includes translation filters to enable selective data translation.
