Компания Theorem доработала конвертер Unigraphics - CATIA v5
In particular, the new translators' ability to match CATIA V5's Assembly Design application - in allowing native CATIA V4 parts to be incorporated within a CATIA V5 CATProduct assembly structure - is thought to be unique. This feature is especially beneficial to users who employ both CATIA V4 & CATIA V5 in a mixed design environment and who wish to maintain their CATIA V4 data in its native format. Theorem's latest CADverters will handle the complete CATProduct structure, processing both native CATParts and native CATIA V4 data collectively.
As a result, there is no need for users of assemblies supporting both CATIA V5 and CATIA V4 component files to undertake any pre-processing of CATProducts before translation, or to translate their components separately. Theorem's CATIA V5 translator will generate the required Unigraphics assemblies and parts directly from the hybrid CATIA assembly.
Equally, users of CATIA V5 assemblies do not even need to know if they are working with just CATIA V5 data or a hybrid assembly in order to harness the full capabilities of this new Theorem translator. The CADverter detects the appropriate CATIA data type, then automatically applies the correct translation.
In effect, users are provided with two complementary and seamless translation capabilities within a single product. Even so, Theorem takes the view that for existing customers, this new technology is simply an upgrade. Accordingly, all users with a current maintenance contract for their original CATIA V5 to Unigraphics translator will be able to take advantage of these extra capabilities without additional charge.
Trevor Leeson, Marketing Manager at Theorem commented: "CAD data translation is no longer a case of simply translating files. The complexity of the modern PLM workplace demands that every effort is made to simplify workflow and to pass the time saving benefits onto customers. In addition, users need to know that the CAD translation software solutions they install have the active support of their PLM vendors. In these latest Unigraphics - CATIA V5 translators, we believe Theorem has set new standards for both of these requirements."
