CAD DATA MIGRATION from CADDS to CATIA
Computer Aided Design is now in its fifth generation. The exciting promise of the early 1980s is now being delivered with unimaginable modelling capabilities on the designer’s desktop running on the humble personal computer. Computer Aided Design has come of age and today’s powerful, intuitive, flexible PLM systems can replace everything that went before at a fraction of the cost. Strangely even despite the massive strides that have been made in functionality and usability some of the old systems still survive. They have not just survived but have become entrenched and are acting as a barrier to the extension of new systems that model more easily, have truly integrated databases and are less costly to run.

How do the businesses where CADDS has become entrenched, take advantage of the newer, more powerful and less expensive PLM systems and particularly CATIA V5 and CATIA V6?
