Data eXchange Navigator (DXN) is an important tool for Engineering companies who exchange product data as part of a collaborative Design and Manufacturing process. When receiving data from external companies, supplied as STEP, Native CAD or Visualization data, Data eXchange Navigator enables you to understand what you have received or have translated.
By showing the product content in a hierarchical manner, and allowing access to any associated attribute information along with the ability to visualize the geometric shape, prior to translating or sending any of the data you have full knowledge of the file.
Features within DXN also allow you to merge a sub-assembly, consisting of a number of geometric components, into one larger file. Alternatively you can separate out items from within a single large file into a sub-assembly of smaller items, or generate individual part files.
When creating data to distribute to other systems, DXN enables you to bring together a collection of product structure, attribute and geometric data and export the output in either STEP or Native CAD or Visualization formats.
