    Enabling the exchange of design data through use of lightweight formats

    Theorem provides solutions for all of the major lightweight viewing formats and enables you to create and consume that data for a variety of downstream purposes.

    Lightweight 3D visualization data is used for a wide range of purposes, including desktop viewing, full scale digital mock up and for sharing data with suppliers. It is used in support of a wide range of engineering processes and for supplier communication. Being lightweight whilst representing the shape and structure of source CAD, it limits the depth of intellectual property (IP) being shared, so protects IP.

    As well as geometry and product structure data, it can be used to share PMI (GD&T) information and Metadata internally and with customers and suppliers, thereby supporting the move to Model Based Engineering.

    Typical Use Case Scenario for Lightweight 3D products

    If you find that you need to work with or share visualization data as part of your design and manufacturing process Theorem’s Lightweight 3D suite of products offer direct translation of 3D data for the purpose of Visualization.

    Lightweight data formats have different use cases to mechanical CAD and due to the increasing sophistication of visualization systems, the requirement to exchange visualization data is helping to enhance collaboration.

    Whilst visualization formats help to secure Intellectual Property, at the same time they support a rich enough set of design data intelligence that suppliers have all of the information required to complete their job.

    Collaboration between business partners, whether suppliers or customers, is increasingly being achieved today with the exchange of Visualization data with an emerging requirement to read Visualization data back in to the native mechanical CAD system.
