Theorem Release Plant Design to Mechanical CAD Translators r esolving the issue of incompatible data formats across Industries
Staffordshire UK, 5th January 2012: Theorem Solutions, world leading supplier of PLM interoperability solutions provides latest DGN to CATIA V5 CADverter, developed to bridge the gap between the world of Plant Design and Mechanical CAD, resolving the issues of incompatible data formats and the ability to complete full design reviews of combined data sets when these two design paths meet.
The Microstation (DGN) to CATIA V5 CADverter has been designed specifically to take data from Microstation into CATIA V5 and Delmia. Normally these two design disciplines are used within different areas of an organisation but when they have to share data issues can arise. The primary issues being the incompatible data formats that exist between Microstation and CATIA V5 and Delmia.
Theorem's CADverter provides a solution to this problem. It enables CATIA and Delmia users to take Microstation shared cell instances or reference files which are used to define product structure and create CATproducts in CATIA V5 or Delmia. Then by taking individual Microstation geometric items and creating a CATpart or CGR representation it creates geometric representations for use in CATIA V5 or Delmia.
The Microstation to CATIA V5 CADverter enables the CATIA V5 or Delmia user to take building or plant designs from Microstation and use them with Product Data in CATIA or with Digital Manufacturing and Production definitions in Delmia.
Theorem’s DGN to V5 CADverter has been developed using both the Bentley Microstation and Dassault Systemes API's guaranteeing compatibility with latest vendor releases.

About Theorem Solutions
Theorem Solutions is a long established World leading supplier of services and products that solve a range of engineering data problems for the design and manufacturing communities. Formed in 1991, to address CAD data translation issues, Theorem has gone on to master this challenge and deliver cost saving solutions and consultancy to engineering and manufacturing OEMs and their suppliers throughout the world.
Theorem’s CADverter family of translators provide interoperability capabilities between all of the major CAD systems, providing a comprehensive exchange of data including geometry, attributes and product manufacturing information.
Partner to all major CAD vendors and with the use of vendor supported development environments Theorem’s CADverter products ensure that the data being processed conforms to the specific requirements of the various applications. In addition, as the vendors improve their respective propriety file formats, their supported development environments remove all risks associated with database changes and guarantee to keep pace with the changes they make.
Design, Engineering and Manufacturing companies use Theorem’s consultancy and products to automate and take cost out of collaborating with business partners and they range in complexity from one to one partnerships to solutions for supply chains with hundreds of companies.
As well as enabling interoperability between trading partners Theorem also provides process automation solutions that are used “in house” for tasks such as CAD data migration and long term archiving. These save time and money by streamlining and eliminating the labor intensive tasks involved in translating and managing engineering and manufacturing data, help protect IP and also enable the capture and retention of skills which might otherwise be lost through employee mobility or retirement.
