CATIA V5 Import for AutoCAD is a CATIA V5 file import plug-in for AutoCAD. This plug-in gives AutoCAD the ability to import 3D data from CATIA V5 part and assembly files.
CATIA V5 Import for AutoCAD creates true solids in AutoCAD which can then be edited using AutoCAD’s solid modeling tools just like any other 3D solid. This plug-in does not need CATIA V5 to be installed on the computer or on the network.
CATIA V5 Import for AutoCAD is powered by the widely used 3D InterOp technology from Spatial. 3D InterOp is the industry standard for proprietary CAD file format data exchange and is used in almost all the major CAD systems. Besides data exchange 3D InterOp also offers powerful repairing and healing features which are extensively used in CATIA V5 Import for AutoCAD. Repairing involves checking the file for corrupted data and fixing the invalid data. Healing corrects the differences in precision. CATIA V5 Import for AutoCAD also creates a detailed log file which is extremely useful in identifying data translation problems and aids in locating and fixing errors.
