NX step to Catia translation

NX step to Catia translation

NX step to Catia translation


We currently working in a multi cad enviroment with both NX7.5 & Catia v5R21.

Just wondering if anyone knows of a translator that can cover over NX attributes to Catia? I've been trying the Step translator without success. I thought when translating metadata the attributes would be translated too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: NX step to Catia translation

Try JT format.As far as i know JT is supported in CATIA V5 also.Normally STEP will enable appending the PMI information along with it but i am not sure if it can carry the NX attributes also.

RE: NX step to Catia translation

Have you looked at the NX to Catia translator ?
I have never used it, but I know it's out there.

RE: NX step to Catia translation

Do a File > Save As
and you will see Catia options in the pull-down

RE: NX step to Catia translation

Thanks guys for the response. I enquired today with our Siemens reseller here in Australia about the additonional license required to give us the SAVE AS to Catia functionality.

I'm hoping to get a trial to do some testing. Will be intereted to see the results.


RE: NX step to Catia translation

The Catia translator with NX (and Unigraphics) has been included with it (for free) for as long as I can remember (24 years).

RE: NX step to Catia translation

@jerry1423, The actual software may be included with NX but you need to have the NX CATIA V5 Interface (Translator) [NX30604] to run it.
