ITI TranscenData’s Proficiency Collaboration Gateway 8.1 is a CAD interoperability solution for manufacturers and their suppliers. Collaboration Gateway enables the transfer of design intelligence between major CAD systems, which includes geometry, features, sketches, manufacturing info, metadata, assembly information, and drawings in the conversion process.
Collaboration Gateway 8.1 features a completion wizard, which operates as a plug-in and tracks and validates any manual changes that a user makes involving portions of the model that could not be automatically exchanged due to CAD incompatibility differences. From within the CAD system they are using, the user is presented with information about pending issues, and presented with options as how to successfully complete the model. Once an option is selected, the model is automatically updated and all changes are documented.
The new release includes a 3D completion wizard for NX, a 2D wizard for CATIA V5, and a faster geometry engine that improves the quality of results for Pro/E to NX and CATIA V4 to V5. The new version also includes other automatic data exchange feature support enhancements for I-deas, NX, Pro/E, and CATIA V5 as well as more robust collaboration gateway server architecture.
