Collaboration between CATIA and Allegro is based on EDMD standard (*.idx files – XML based) for data exchange. Standard is based on an incremental exchange which means that in each data exchange only changes (not whole design) are being sent, which in other hand ensures that small-sized data is being sent to another collaboration side and in that way speed up the whole process.
