Add-on module enables data visualisation in two formats
Theorem Solutions has announced the latest functionality enhancement to its CATIA V5 to PTC Creo View Adapter, with the release of the JT output add-on module. This additional module helps users needing to output CATIA V5 data into both the PTC Creo View and Siemens JT Teamcenter Visualisation formats using a single application, ensuring the native design data is accessible by a wider audience.
The main benefit to users of Theorem’s adapter module is reduced cost of ownership using a single data visualisation product compared to managing two. The optional module helps to improve processing time of CATIA V5 data to generate both output formats from a single pass of the data.
Theorem’s JT add-on module for CATIA V5 to Creo View adapter provides a fast and effective method of translating CATIA V5 assemblies, parts and drawings into the PTC Creo View and Siemens JT Teamcenter Visualisation formats whist maintaining full application functionality. As a result, important and productive features such as sectioning, clash detection and BREP geometry verification are all supported.
The adapter also incorporates Theorem’s '2 in 1' CATIA V5 capability. This enables CATIA V5 assembly (.CATProduct) files containing components in both native CATIA V5 and CATIA V4 formats (.CATPart & .model) files to be processed together. The software automatically identifies the data type of the required parts and applies the correct translation process without any input from the operator, reducing the possibility of user error.
Theorem's CATIA V5 to Creo View Adapter will operate independently of the PTC Windchill PDM system and, although availability of Windchill is not a pre-requisite, users can gain additional benefits by configuring the translator as a 'Windchill Worker', bringing the creation and distribution of visualisation files totally under the control of the data management system.
