Mastercam Add-on Moldplus CATIA translator V4 SP1


The latest Moldplus CATIA translator V4 SP1 to import CATIA V4 and CATIA V5 (supports R21 files) has been released for Mastercam X6. The new version offers more value and features than many other solutions found in the market, such as:
  • Import hidden entities in the CATIA V5 file and manage the visibility using the imported CATIA tree
  • Import manufacturing notes, flag notes, and other notes found in the CATIA V5 file
  • Import edges of Solids using the color of the adjacent Solid face edges
In addition, you can also import PMI/MBD/FTA data (optional feature) and use that with Verisurf software or use the information found in the file for part manufacturing. Soon, they will be offering the ability to import .CGR (CATIA Graphics Rendering) files as an optional feature.
