ITI TranscenData, the developer of CADIQ, CADfix, DEXcenter and Proficiency, announced today that it has moved from Gold Partner to PlatinumPartner within PTC’s PartnerAdvantage™ Program. The upgrade to the Platinum Partnership, which provides enhanced access to a comprehensive suite of capabilities, allows for notable enhancements within ITI TranscenData’s CADIQ solution. CADIQ is the leading CAD model validation application that identifies model-based design issues that adversely impact downstream processes, such as tooling, simulation and manufacturing.
“Our Platinum Partnership with PTC now offers greater resources for the development of our Model Based Design (MBD) validation solutions for Pro/ENGINEER®.” said Doug Cheney, CADIQ Product Manager. “Most CAD validation tools only verify design reuse for design – enforcing modeling conventions. CADIQ goes a step further, validating MBD models for downstream reuse – at design release and through any format conversion in the lifecycle. This new partnership level with PTC will enable comprehensive quality and comparison analysis of 3D annotation (PMI) data in our next major release.”
Engineers tasked with long-term data retention and archival initiatives use CADIQ to certify translations and conversions for 3D CAD models prior to archival, through geometry and semantics-based validation. CADIQ validates 3D models, assemblies, corresponding features and product manufacturing information (i.e. 3D PMI, GD&T, FT&A) against the source data, and provides automated predictive diagnostics. These diagnostics are used to identify, forecast and troubleshoot legacy conversion issues.
CADIQ is packaged for use in desktop or server environments, is easily integrated into design release and check-in and check-out processes of PLM workflows, and can be embedded in interoperability automations solutions.
Andy Barlow, PTC’s Senior Director of Business Development, stated, “We are pleased that ITI TranscenDatahas chosen to extend its partnership with PTC. We are looking forward to working closely together to enhance the value CADIQ brings to Pro/ENGINEERusers, along with ITI TranscenData’s entire suite of CAD Interoperability Solutions.”
