Since 1994 Datakit has facilitated the exchange of 2D and 3D data for users and developers of CAD, CAD/CAM, 3D visualization, simulation, metrology, and modeling applications. The latest version of CrossManager (Datakit software for file-to-file conversion of most 3D and 2D formats) and CrossCadWare (reading and writing libraries for 2D and 3D software vendors) improve once again the interoperability between different standard and native formats. Datakit conversion libraries V2022.1 bring new reading functionalities for Inventor, OBJ, REVIT 3D. They also add CATIA V5 writing functionalities. • Read the predefined views, as well as the FD&T (PMI) from the INVENTOR 3D assembly files • Read the alpha channel of colors (transparency) from OBJ 3D and RHINO 3D files • Write in CATIA V5 the Views named by the user Datakit is constantly upgrading its SDK to remain compatible with the latest versions from publishers, as well as with their previous versions. Datakit V2022.1 adds new versions and now makes it possible to: • Read JT files up to version 10.7 • Read older REVIT versions (2011,2012,2013 and 2014) in complement with REVIT 2015 to 2022 versions. • Extract data from Solid Edge 2022, the latest version of Solid Edge. • Read the 2022 SP0 version of Solid Works, but also its ancestors from 2006 to 2008. • Read NX 1992, 1996, 2000, the last versions of NX. Continuous Improvement governs Datakit's 2D and 3D interoperability solutions updates The Datakit technical data exchange API is constantly reworked to improve the quality, reliability, speed, and security of reading/writing 2D and 3D formats functionalities. These improvements are also integrated into CrossManager the stand-alone software published by Datakit, which allows you to convert files from most CAD formats.
