HAMAMATSU, Japan, 2 April, 2013—Elysium Co., Ltd., a leading global provider of design data exchange software, today announced the conclusion of a development partner contract for CATIA V6 with Dassault Systèmes.
Elysium enters into contract with all major CAD vendors to handle various CAD data. To support translation with CATIA V6, the agreement between Elysium and Dassault Systèmes has officially concluded. (*) Per this agreement, Elysium becomes one of very few partners that can develop CATIA V6-related products under official approval of Dassault Systèmes.
By adding support for CATIA V6 to Elysium translation products under the technical cooperative framework of Dassault Systèmes, Elysium is able to provide high quality 3D data translation with the quick ability to support new versions as released.
(*)Formal contract name: DS V6 APS COMMUNITY PARTNER AGREEMENT
All CATIA V6 data is stored in Dassault Systèmes’ PDM (Product Data Management) system “ENOVIA”, which means access to ENOVIA is a prerequisite to handling the V6 data within. Direct translation of CATIA V6 data stored in ENOVIA is realized to be possible by using “XCAD” –a conversion platform of CATIA V6. Elysium is one of only two translation vendors in the world to complete an agreement with Dassault Systems with license to develop a 3D data translator by utilizing “XCAD”.
For a robust CATIA V6 translation, Elysium uses “XCAD” to convert various elements of CATIA V6 while utilizing its current technical know-how that has been achieved with experience and history of translation with CATIA V4 and V5. Elysium plans to begin selling CATIA V6-related translation products in June of 2013.
