Catia Export Files


New member

We draw our components using Catia V5, then export the data to toolmakers for manufacture, usually using a neutral format sucha s STEP or IGES.

Recently we have begun dealing with a new toolmaker who is requesting the data as catia export files. Therefore a couple of questions:

1) Does this imply that he is able to read catia data? If so what is the purpose of an export file, would it not be possible to just send CATpart file direct?

2) Are catia export files still current in v5, or are they a carry over from v4?

Thanks in advance
I have catia materials as the followings:
