CATIA V4 to V5 Translation

Many users think that opening V4 files in V5 should be very easy since they both come from the same company. This is not necessarily true. V4 had a different file structure and was based on an older architecture . V5 was revamped for the Windows Platform (V4 ran on the Unix OS.) This demo shows how you can open a V4 model and successfully turn it into a V5 component. The interesting bit here is that we can do that intelligently. In other words, be able to preserve the part history that consists of model features and sketches.
