Dassault Systèmes is the global leader in the development of PLM and CADCAM solutions distributed by IBM.
In 2016, Type3 celebrated 17 years of its partnership with Dassault Systèmes. Type3 was one of the first partners of Dassault Systèmes for the implementation and integration of complementary solutions in the CATIA V5 software.
A technology partner since 1999, the first version of our TYPE3 add-on for CATIA was launched in 2003. Since then, we have ensured compatibility with the latest releases of CATIA V5 and will launch our compatible version 3D EXPERIENCE (CATIAV6) during the second quarter of 2016.
Fully integrated into CATIA, according to the CAA (Component Application Architecture) principle, which guarantees perfect and complete integration. The TYPE3 solutions are the only ones recognised as certified by Dassault Systèmes for "engraving" applications in CATIA.
TYPE3-CAA is the only add-on solution fully integrated in CATIA for the simple and professional creation and integration of text and graphics (logos, symbolss) in the PLM process.
The user benefits from a fluid interface with functions integrated natively which guarantee perfect associative capabilities throughout the creation process.
TEXTS/ LOGOS/SYMBOLS/NUMBERING, etc: required as part of a transparent design during the manufacturing process, including for traceability.
We offer various packages, TYPE3 Graphic, TYPE3 Graphic&Wrap and TYPE3 Gateway CAA.
• TYPE3 Graphic: creation of texts/numbers, symbol integration, logo vectorising (from BMP or JPG files)
• TYPE3 Graphic&Wrap: the features of the "graphic" package as well as projections and windings on 3D surfaces
• TYPE3 Gateway: gateway for copying/pasting from CATIA entities to TYPEEDIT or LASERTYPE (and vice versa).
Example of use: to create text in CATIA (to svae a native CATIA file) and copy/paste in TYPEEDIt to create a 2D or 2.5D "engraving" machining path (angle adjustment using conical cutters).
The TYPE3 CAA solutions are available for single-user or server, single site or multi site use.

The range of applications is extensive. TYPE3-CAA can also be used for manufacturing, simulation or marketing (product presentation and visualisation)
