CATIA V4 Import By Datakit

 

Overview

Provides Open CASCADE-based applications with the capability of reading and manipulating native data from CATIA V4.

This CATIA V4 data exchange solution works as an Open CASCADE Technology Plug-in. It allows importing BRep data (geometrical and topological data) alone or in assemblies (defined with components as located parts). MODEL files can be converted.

Features

* Reading geometry and topology information from SolidEdge.

Geometrical and topological native CATIA V4 files can be converted to Open CASCADE Technology shapes.

Translation calls on the Shape Healing function to produce data which meet the consistency requirements of Open CASCADE Technology. The plug-in processes a MODEL file of CATIA V4. Data can be exchanged by calling these interface library functions.

Assemblies defined in CATIA V4, made of components defined as located parts or other assemblies (for assemblies at several levels), are converted to compound shapes of Open CASCADE Technology, reflecting the initial data sharing of parts.

Benefits

This translator provides native and direct exchange of CATIA V4 data with Open CASCADE-based applications and can considerably extend the scope and increase the quality and speed of translation. It meets the growing needs of interoperability between specific applications and users’ existing CAD systems. The interface

  • provides a high level of shapes' data exchange quality;
  • requires no third-party license;
  • expands data exchange capabilities of your analysis codes.

Configuration

The CATIA V4 Plug-in is available for Open CASCADE Technology versions 6.3.0, 6.3.1, 6.5.0, 6.5.1, 6.5.5, 6.6.0, 6.7.0 and 6.7.1. You can ask Datakit if you need another version.
