The CATIA - Extended STEP Interface (SXT) product enables long-term archiving with full validation properties and nested assemblies. CATIA supports all STEP validation properties and ensures the best quality controls for data exchange and long-term archiving.
Nested Assembly Export
Large assemblies can be exported in multiple STEP files, one file for each product.
There are two possible options, global and partial. Global generates STEP files for all levels of an assembly. Partial generates the STEP file for only one product (sub-levels are not exported).
Support of FTA in STEP exchange Allows the user to store a true copy of the CATIA FT&A presentation in STEP format, and to retrieve it (WYSIWYG import /export).
Applicative Data Enabler (e.g. composites) For additional capabilities, please refer to the Step Core Interface (ST1) product.
