In CATIA V5/V6/3DEXPERIENCE, users have the ability to convert data in batch mode. When using V6 and 3DEXPERIENCE, this will automatically import/export data from the ENOVIA database.

  1. Browse to “Batch Management” which can be found under Start > All Programs > CATIA/3DEXPERIENCE [your installed version] > Tools
  2. This will load Batch Monitor. Please double click on BATCH-DXF-IGES-STEP:Batch Convert CATPart
  3.  This will launch the utility to Batch convert:
