Geometry Translators

Abaqus Add-ons

The CAD geometry translators for CATIA V4 and Parasolid allow you to transfer model geometries from CAD systems into Abaqus/CAE. These geometry translators allow you to import models directly from the CAD system’s native file format. Within these translators, you only need the appropriate file reader for Abaqus/CAE.

CATIA V4

Geometry Translator for CATIA V4 Versions 4.1.9 through 4.2.4

This translator allows you to import geometries from CATIA V4 format (.model, .catdata, .exp) files directly into Abaqus/CAE.

Parasolid

Geometry Translator for Parasolid Versions 10 to 25.0.155

This translator allows you to import geometries from Parasolid format (.x_t, .x_b, .xmt_txt, .xmt_bin) files directly into Abaqus/CAE. A variety of CAD products can generate Parasolid-format parts, such as NX, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, FEMAP, and MSC.Patran.
