CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE Multi-CAD JT Plug-in
Working in CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE.
|Interactive Design-In-Context solution for CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE users who need to work with JT Parts or Assemblies.|
|Maintains associativity between the native JT files and CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE|
|Enables automatic update of CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE representation when JT changes are undertaken.|
|Uses standard CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE "Insert Existing Component" commands to open JT data into the active CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE session.|
The traditional approach to working with JT data is to translate the JT data to CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, using either a standard such as STEP AP203 or a direct database translator. In doing so the original JT 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.
One downside to this approach is recognising when a design change takes place in JT and managing the process of updating the CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE representation to take into account the changes once the initial translation process is completed. The other issue is that the designer has no control over when the data is translated if it is carried out as a separate process.
Theorem Solutions has developed an interactive CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE solution for JT data based upon the Dassault Systemes strategic XCAD technology. This enables the CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE user to interactively work with native JT parts and assemblies in an active CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE session. This is achieved by simply selecting the JT part or assembly to be inserted into CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE allowing the user to work with the JT data to perform Design Modification, Design-in-Context and Manufacturing activities.
Using the Theorem Solutions CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE Multi-CAD plug-in eliminates the gap caused by traditional data translation tools, when the source JT part is changed Multi-CAD automatically updates CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE by retaining an associative link between CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE and the original JT data.
