Theorem Solutions and FEI partner on Data Exchange Navigator

September 23, 2014 - Theorem Solutions and FEI Visualization Sciences Group today announce a new partnership that has aided the re-development and subsequent re-launch of Theorem’s Data Exchange Navigator (DXN) with use of FEI's Open Inventor 3D software development toolkit.

"Partnering with FEI has enabled Theorem to increase the capability of their 3D visualization, rendering and data filtering capabilities. Additionally, from the use of the Open Inventor toolkit stems a new Graphical User Interface that is being rolled out with the latest releases of the CADverter product suite; giving the user a vastly improved and more interactive experience.”, says Mark Stowe, Chief Technology Officer at Theorem Solutions . “Theorem are extremely impressed with the support, training, implementation and ongoing help received from FEI Visualization Sciences Group in integrating Open Inventor into the Theorem portfolio of products and solutions for the CAD/CAM/CAE marketplace”.

Theorem’s DXN is an important tool for engineering companies who exchange product data as part of a collaborative Design and Manufacturing process. When receiving data from external companies, supplied as STEP, Native CAD or Visualization data, DXN enables you to understand what you have received or have translated, in isolation of the source data application by showing the product content in a hierarchical manner, and allowing access to any associated attribute information along with the ability to visualize the geometric shape, prior to translating or sending any of the data, it enables the user to have full knowledge of the file.
The data filtering element of DXN makes it an ideal decision support tool for all aspects of data exchange and collaboration and provides the ability to view and interrogate at a detailed level, CAD designs and STEP models, without the need for duplicate data files, or additional CAD software licences. Very often suppliers in the Automotive, Aerospace, Power Generation and White Goods markets will collaborate with several major manufacturing organisations, each operating different CAD systems. This results in the receipt of CAD data in many different formats, which have to be processed before the user is able to begin work. In the area of CAD Data Exchange, component geometry can now be reviewed before and after translation, allowing comparisons and verifications to be undertaken on data received, or about to be supplied.

Additional projects are already in development, incorporating the latest data rendering and remote 3D visualization technologies from FEI's Open Inventor that will continue to strengthen the partnership and further increase Theorem's position as a world leader in engineering data services and solutions.
