Theorem's V22.1 CATIA V5- Multi-CAD to JT product has been released with a number of new product features and enhancements, alongside general updates to improve stability and geometry quality.
Integrated within the CATIA V5 application V22.1 supports from CATIA V5-6R2015 to CATIA V5-6R2019, and all versions of JT, up to and including 10.0, providing the user with the highest levels of interoperability with JT file assemblies.
This CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to JT product is uni-directional product but can be packaged with Theorem’s JT to CATIA V5 Multi-CAD product to become a bi-directional translator.
New features and enhancements in V22.1 include:
- Improved CGR processing- this new feature enables a single CGR file that contains multiple parts to be viewed/accessed using the JT leaf structure option.
- The JT assembly structure can now be defined using the STEP AP242 BOM representation with subordinate JT component files.
- Ability to control the translation output when running in batch mode. When running the translator interactively within CATIA V5 the user can control the derived data to be either Multi-CAD or Translation mode.
Theorem’s CATIA V5 Multi-CAD to JT Product is based upon the Dassault Systemes XCAD infrastructure, allowing CATIA V5 users to incorporate parts and assemblies from JT, directly within the CATIA environment and removing the need for external translators. The application checks geometry for errors and validates the integrity of the data as it comes into CATIA. The beauty of the Dassault Multi-CAD architecture is the interlinking of the CATIA data and non-native data.
Using Multi-CAD offers a greater level of security and protection as the link to the source data is a direct link, without the need to leave the application or use 3rd party external applications. This also removes any errors that can occur from working with potentially old and out of date data.
Theorem’s strategic partnerships with Dassault Systemes and Siemens ensures that there is a parallel development between the latest releases of CATIA V5, JT and Theorem’s Multi-CAD products, allowing Theorem to continue to provide data solutions to the CATIA V5 community.
