CADverter-VR provides rapid access to immersive VR environment.

Theorem has released CADverter-VR, a free plug-in for existing users to explore their 3D CAD data at scale, in a fully immersive virtual reality environment.

As part of the latest software release (V24.0), existing users now have the capability to take a design from screen to Virtual Reality in a few clicks, without leaving the Theorem Unified Interface (UI) or even their local machine, the company said in a press release. 

Existing users of the Theorem CADverter translation solutions, such as CATIA V5 <> NX, CATIA V5 <> JT, Creo <>JT or CATIA V5 to Creo View, can translate their data between formats and then further extend its use by visualizing it in VR. They can also access the native data from the file menu within the UI to visualize in VR, using the free CADverter-VR functionality of the UI.

Users of the Theorem On-Demand 3D PDF Publishing solutions (such as CATIA V5 to 3D PDF) can make CAD data accessible for ease of sharing in the PDF format, and will now also have the ability to view and manipulate it in a VR scene.

The company has also included the Theorem-XR Desktop Review Experience as part of this release.


Theorem supports a range of VR headsets, including HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
