Benefits and Description
CATIA V5 users can now manage their CATIA Material and supporting image files in Windchill.
The CATIA Material can be made available to users through the CATALOG that can also be managed in Windchill.
When a CATIA Material is assigned to a CATIA model that is stored in Windchill, a ‘Material’ type reference dependency relationship is created and maintained in Windchill between the CATIA Material and the CATIA Model.
The dependency relation in Windchill enables CATIA V5 users to search for all Parts that are assigned a specific material.
