The latest update of Datakit’s 2D and 3D data exchange software range is now available. It adds support for new CAD and BIM formats versions reading, for all Datakit software:
CATIA V6 / 3DEXPERIENCE and CGR Readers
Version R2019x of CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE is now supported. Datakit tools can now read and convert .3dxml and .cgr files from versions R2010x to R2019x.
Datakit’s Inventor format reader is now able to read .ipt and .iam files coming from Inventor 2020.
Following the recent change of NX versions numbering, Siemens has released several new versions since Datakit’s V2019.2. The V2019.3 already supports them and can read versions up to NX 1867.
Datakit continues the improvement of its Revit format reader, which progress rapidly since its first release in early 2018. The latest version Revit 2020 is now supported, allowing to convert the most recent Revit native files. But Datakit also continues to go back in past versions by also supporting the reading of the 2015 version, o allow older files conversion. This interface thus now supports native Revit files from 2015 to 2020 versions.
Datakit continues its BIM formats development by expanding the capabilities of its IFC reader, which can now read and convert compressed IFC files .ifzip, in addition to previously supported .ifc and .ifcxml files.
Version 2019.3 also benefits from the constant improvement of CAD converters provided by Datakit. These enhancements apply to all Datakit’s product lines: for end users using plug-ins or the converter CrossManager, as well as for software vendors integrating Datakit’s technology.
Users wanting to try Datakit software can download it and get a trial license on CrossManager and CrossCad/Plg official pages.
