Anyone have a chart of which version(s) of NX will open which versions of other CAD software?
At the moment i'm trying to translate files from CATIA V5-6 R26 SP2 HF0 (can see this with text editor) and I always end up with an empty model. Tried NX126.96.36.199MP8 and NX10.0.3.5 MP4 with java 1.7 in 32 bit and 64 bit as well as with java 1.8 in 64 bit with no luck yet.
It would be helpful if I could find a chart to direct me to which NX version and Java should translate a given format. I looked around in GTAC and on website with no luck yet.
What kind of file format do you translate?
STEP should be no trouble at all, direct translation of CATIA files might be a problem.
As for a chart, there might be one contained in one of the support matrices located at the bottom right corner of the GTAC main page in the quick links.
Production: NX10.0.3, VERICUT 7.4, FBM, MRL 3.1.4 | TcUA 10.1 MP7 Patch 0 (10.1.7.0) | TcVis 10.1
Development: VB.NET, Tcl/Tk Testing: NX11.0
At the moment I have native CATIA files to translate, I always recommend a neutral format when I can, but some customers find it easier to send native files and I'd prefer not to pester them to change their format to work wtih my company.
If a chart exists in that area on GTAC I don't see it. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Thank you Anthony! That is a great point to start.
Now if only this information were compiled into a single table so we didn't have to look deep into each versions release notes.
In addition to the release notes, keep an eye on the maintenance release (MR) and maintenance patch (MP) notes. Occasionally the ability to open other file types will be upgraded in an MR or MP.
