T-Systems develops a VDAFS processor for CATIA V5 within Dassault Systèmes Software Community Program.
The Functionality The VDA surface interface (VDAFS) is a neutral format for CAD data that supports in a simple way the exchange of 3D geometric data and especially of sculptured surfaces between various CAD systems. COM/VDAFS for CATIA V5 supports the bi-directional data conversion for points and point sets, 3D curves, sculptured surfaces and trimmed surfaces (FACES).
The Availability The functionality of COM/VDAFS is completely integrated in the CATIA system and enables an interactive conversion within the CATIA session. Additionally a batch call interface and a high sophisticated JAVA user interface for submission and administration of batch jobs (including batch job submission) outside the interactive CATIA session are available.
Perspective Data conversion has a long tradition at debis Systemhaus, today operating as T-Systems. Our customers can rely on our continuing commitment to develop and support state-of-the-art data exchange solutions.
Improvement of the competitiveness by closed process chains and unique approach within the design processes
Improvement of the product quality by continuation of work on model results with CATIA V5 without problems
Low system costs by smooth exchange of 3D geometry with CATIA
