We have released an update to the PDM CATIA Integration Tool. This tool will help you integrate your SOLIDWORKS and CATIA data. SOLIDWORKS supports links between products or parts assemblies in Product Data Manager with children for CATIA-related data.
The ability to have bi-directional mapping between PDM Variables and CATIA Parameters (title blocks):
Initiate on demand
Initiate through a PDM Task
Batch plot and save CATIA drawings as PDFs
Configurable bi-directional metadata mapping of PDM Variables to CATIA Parameters
Ability to convert CATIA data into derived outputs, e.g., PDF, STEP, etc.
Perform metadata mapping at derived output creation
Dynamically determine where the derived output file will be stored, i.e., inside PDM or on a network drive
Dynamically control mapping of data card variables to derived output file
Extend solutions to meet any customer-specific requirements
The CATIA PDM Integration tool Improves upon the current management of CATIA data in SOLIDWORKS PDM.
