TN70075C Standard Interface Package License & practice of CATIA CAD import

Siemens Creator Siemens Creator
Siemens Creator

In the pricebook, it said

DXF, IDI IN, IGES & STL IN

Question

 

(1) So this license only supports these 4 format

DXF, IDI, IGES, stl ?

 

Is there any other type of file format supported?

 

(2) Can this be used with PS?

      I cannot find any user menu in PS  to import any of these 4 formats

 

(3) If the customer is using CATIA CAD V6 to design fixture, part, how do we convert?

and eventually to import to PS for simulation?

 

(4) What is the typical practice for PS to import other CAD data?

 

(5) For PS, only import format is .psz, so how is  JT or other CAD data format is imported?

 

Please advise, thanks!

Hello Dan,

 

You can import the formats you mention under the menu:

 

File - Import/Export - Convert and insert CAD Files 

 

Ïn the dialog you can select "Add" and filter the format you prefer.

 

Be aware you need to install the correct version of CAD translators as well. It is not installed by default. 

 

.psz is the file format to store only the simulations, the 3D parts / resources are stored (converted) separately as .cojt files.
