The CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE to NX Translator is an interactive Design-In-Context solution for CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE users who need to work with NX Parts or Assemblies
The traditional approach to working with NX data is to translate the NX data to CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, using either a standard such as STEP AP203 or a direct database translator like CADverter. In doing so the original NX data is converted to a CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE representation. This task is either carried out by members of the design team or alternatively undertaken by dedicated translation specialists.
Theorem Solutions has developed an interactive CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE solution for NX data based upon the Dassault Systemes strategic XCAD technology (Multi-CAD). This enables the CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE user to interactively work with native NX parts and assemblies in an active CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE session. This is achieved by simply selecting the NX part or assembly to be inserted into CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE allowing the user to work with the NX data to perform Design Modification, Design-in-Context and Manufacturing activities.
As a CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE user, you will benefit from Multi-CAD. This product enables you to work interactively with native NX data inside of a design session without the need for external translation.
Theorem's Multi-CAD application is an interactive solution to the problems that can be encountered when needing to work on projects where other NX data needs to be regularly worked on during a design project.
Multi-CAD maintains the integrity and correct version of the imported data as it comes into CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE by keeping an associative link back to the source 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 third-party external applications. This also removes any errors that can occur from potentially working with old, out of date data.
Theorem’s CATIA V5 3DEXPERIENCE <> NX supports the translation of 3D Product Manufacturing Information (PMI), assembly structure, geometry, attributes and Metadata between CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE and NX, enabling Model-Based Engineering.
