The CATIA – Extended STEP Interface (SXT) product enables long-term archiving with full validation properties and nested assemblies. CATIA supports all STEP validation properties and ensures the best quality controls for data exchange and long-term archiving.
Nested Assembly Export
- Large assemblies can be exported in multiple STEP files, one file for each product.
- There are two possible options, global and partial. Global generates STEP files for all levels of an assembly. Partial generates the STEP file for only one product (sub-levels are not exported).
Support of FTA in STEP exchange
Allows the user to store a true copy of the CATIA FT&A presentation in STEP format, and to retrieve it (WYSIWYG import /export).
Applicative Data Enabler (e.g. composites)
For additional capabilities, please refer to the Step Core Interface (ST1) product.
Product Key Customer Benefits
