Theorem Solutions integrates with Etrage Plot Services for Windchill

Theorem Solutions has announced the availability of CADverter integration with PTC's Windchill PLM environment through the ETRAGE LLC “Plot Services for Windchill” solution.

Available with immediate effect, CADverter's integration with Windchill through the ETRAGE PSW solution means that Windchill users can now automatically apply Theorem's CADverter to Pro/ENGINEER models via the ETRAGE Plot Server for Windchill (PSW). Users stand to make significant saving of both cost and time through this effective, automated and controlled interoperability process.

PSW now enables users to apply Theorem's CADverter to create CATIA V5, CATIA V4, JT and/or NX from Pro/ENGINEER data directly from within the Windchill application, bringing best in class solutions into an easy to use automated and controlled environment. In addition, where Windchill is being used to manage non PTC CAD files other Theorem CADverters can be also be integrated. For example where Windchill is managing any of CATIA V5, CADDS, ICEM, Solid Works, Solid Edge or Inventor data these too can be translated with Theorem's CADverter via PSW.

Theorem Product Manager Trevor Leeson said “We are very pleased to facilitate the ETRAGE integration of CADverter with their PSW solution. This action reflects the growing trend to develop enterprise wide interoperability solutions by bringing CADverter into automated and managed environments.” Leeson continued “CADverter is still being used as a ‘point solution' where CAD to CAD or CAD to/from Vizualisation requires the exchange of data between just one or two files, but as we see interoperability becoming increasingly an enterprise wide requirement we are seeing more of our customers gain big cost and time savings by integrating CADverter within automated and managed processes”
