Construction Data

Construction data, such as drawings, assemblies and parts are related, links define their connection. Sending and receiving data requires a lot of time to verify if the file sets are complete, if all linked objects are included. For huge data structure, this is a timely and costly procedure, causing a lot of unnecessary communication.

How it Works

XFileV5 guides the file-based data exchange between different design and data management environments. While sending data it ensures that the container is complete, when receiving data it lists any embedded and missing data. A user interface guides users through the interactive mode, the batch mode is suitable for an automated data exchange integration.

Sending & Receiving


  • A user selects one root document
  • All required documents are zipped into one container file
  • An XML-file describing the structure is added


  • Verify if incoming data is complete
  • Root documents, linked and missing documents are listed
  • A user can load in CATIA right away or load to disc
