CCE, an advanced interoperability technology and engineering services provider, announced the immediate availability of EnSuite 2014.
“We’re confident our customers will love the new EnSuite that includes timely support for new CAD format versions and enhancements to provide translation flexibility,” said CCE’s vice president of sales and marketing Vinay Wagle.
EnSuite 2014 provides support for the latest versions of major CAD formats, including SolidWorks 2014, Solid Edge ST6, and Parasolid 26. EnSuite already supports up-to-date versions of CATIA V5 (V5-6R2013), Inventor (2014), Creo (2.0), CATIA V6 (R2013x) and JT (9.5), among others.
According to the company, the 2014 version introduces more flexibility in translation, specifically of NX and JT files, and includes an option to process multi-body files as assemblies. Exporting to NX with this option creates a separate part file on the disk for each body. Exporting to JT with this option permits mapping of input file product structure to output file structure on disk, governed by file structure user preferences.
“Most designers create multi-body parts to save complex assemblies as smaller documents to facilitate easy sharing of data,” said Wagle. “For example, if we have a design of an assembly from a supplier that the OEM wants to know if it fits into their frame, designers can save the assembly as a multi-body part document without having to transmit a large assembly file. However, a multi-body part consists of multiple solid bodies that are not dynamic. If we need to represent dynamic motion among bodies, the option in EnSuite to create an assembly from multi-body parts is very useful.”
