Dassault Systèmes is the global leader in the development of PLM and CADCAM solutions for a various range of industries.
In 2016, Type3 celebrated the 13 years of its partnership with Dassault Systèmes. Type3 was one of the first partners of Dassault Systèmes for the implementation and integration of complementary solutions in the CATIA V5 software.
A technology partner since 1999, the first version of our Type3 add-on for CATIA was launched in 2003. Since then, we have ensured compatibility with the latest releases of CATIA V5 (CATIA: Computer Aided Three-Dimensional Interactive Application) and will launch our compatible version of 3D EXPERIENCE (CATIA V6) during the second quarter of 2016.
Fully integrated into CATIA, according to the CAA (Component Application Architecture) principle, which guarantees perfect and complete integration. The Type3 solutions are the only ones recognized as certified by Dassault Systèmes for "engraving" applications inside CATIA products.
TYPE3-CAA is an add-on solution fully integrated in CATIA for the professional creation and integration of text and graphics (logos, symbols, special characters…) respecting the PLM policies.
CATIA users benefit from a fluid interface with dedicated features integrated natively which guarantee perfect associative capabilities throughout the design process of parts.
TEXTS/ LOGOS/SYMBOLS/NUMBERING, etc: required as part of a transparent design during the manufacturing process, including for traceability but also differentiation between models and companies.
We offer various packages, TYPE3-CAA Graphic, TYPE3-CAA Graphic & Wrap and TYPE3-CAA Gateway with TYPE EDIT.
• TYPE3-CAA Graphic: for creation of texts/numbers, symbols integration, logo vectorizing (from BMP, PNG or JPG files)
• TYPE3-CAA Graphic & Wrap: with the features of the "graphic" package as well as projections and mappings on 3D surfaces
• TYPE3-CAA Gateway: perfect gateway for copying/pasting from CATIA, entities to TYPE EDIT, LASERTYPE or 3DESIGN & 3SHAPER (and vice versa).
Example of use: to create text in CATIA (to save a native CATIA file) and copy/paste in TYPE EDIT to create a 2D or 2.5D "engraving" machining path (angle adjustment using conical cutters).
The TYPE3-CAA solutions are available for single-user or multi-users via dedicated server, for single site or multi-sites use.
