MECODES and Mentor Graphics
Collaboration between CATIA and PADS/Xpedition 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.
MECODES is supporting following versions for integration between CATIA and PADS/Xpedition:
|Software Solution||From Version||To Version||Prerequisites|
|CATIA V5||V5R19||V5-6R2018 (latest)||CBD (Circuit Board Design) license|
|CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE – in BETA testing||2017x||–||CBR (Printed Circuit Board Designer) role|
In case you are using PADS/Xpedition below version VX.2.3 you need to have „Collaborator“ option to support integration.
