Theorem Solutions is providing long-term data archiving solutions using STEP and JT to Archive Engineering and Manufacturing data. STEP and JT are now considered by many to be the safest formats to use because they are neutral standards based formats that are not proprietary. Using Theorem’s Long Term Data Archiving Solutions powered by TPM (Theorem Process Manager) which incorporates automated validation and checking procedures at the point of archive completes the process by avoiding corrupt or invalid legacy data being stored. Theorem's automated Long Term Data Archiving solutions have many benefits, including:
Datakit announced support of heterogeneous CAD assembly conversions with
CrossManager 2012, a front-end file-to-file translator is now fully embedding the powerful
Datakit SDK, allowing unified data processing across a wide range of CAD formats, without requesting any third-party CAD licensing. Translation robustness is required between major CAD systems, including re-using and migrating legacy data. Guided by customer demand, Datakit released the
CATIA to JT translator that will handle assemblies that nests CatiaV6 (.3DXML), CATIA V5, CATIA V4 and CGR (CATIA Graphics Representation) parts and assemblies. This supports CATIA versions up to CATIA V6 R2012 and CATIA V5 R21. CrossManager 2012 will allow bi-directional JT to CATIA V5 translations as well. Datakit is also releasing a
assembly reader, that can refer to various CAD formats. All input data (assemblies and parts) can be converted seamlessly and automatically to available CrossManager output formats, including IGES, VRML, CATIA V5, and others.
TFTLabs S.A.S, announced support for new CAD system versions. TFTWeb gathers a comprehensive set of functionalities to communicate and collaborate on 3D data on various operating systems and browsers such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari. TFTWeb works directly on data from all native or generic CAD formats (more than 20 formats). TFTWeb V1.0 supports all major 3D CAD formats, which now include latest release of CAD systems, including:
