Benefits and Description
To increase overall user productivity and improve data management, Windchill 10.1 M010 provides CATIA V5 users with several new enhancements:
Compare Design Variants directly in CATIA V5 – Users can now load different versions of designs from Windchill PDMLink to compare in CATIA, perform geometry and attribute comparisons, and make design changes as needed.
Revise and Check out option on Import to Workspace – Users can use the Revise and Check out option to incorporate changes seamlessly by importing the data as a new revision of an existing document in Windchill.
Export CATIA data directly from Folder Listing and Search Results – Users now have easy access to the Export CAD Documents action from the context (RMB) menu.
Display Windchill PDM Status of CATIA documents in the specification tree – Windchill PDM status icons (such as new, locked, checked out by you, and checked out by another user) appear in the specification tree.
Support for CATIA Positioning Assemblies in file sync-enabled CATIA CAD workers – When publishing large assemblies, users experience better performance and reduced publishing overhead and time. This type of publishing is now file sync-enabled.
CATIA Shape Representation Management Support in Windchill – Representations are stored as secondary content of the primary CAD document.
