SteepGraph Successfully Completed UPS Data Migration for MTorres, a Spain-Based Machinery Manufacturing Industry

SteepGraph’s Role

  • End to End Responsibility till Go-Live Support

  • Machinery Manufacturing Industry
Key Modules :

  • CAD Data Management
  • Engineering BOM Management
  • Change Management
  • Customization


  • Upgrade from 3DEXPERIENCE 2017x to 2021x:
    Transitioning from an older version to the latest 3DEXPERIENCE 2021x posed compatibility and integration challenges, particularly with CATIA V5 using Designer Central
  • CATIA V5 Data Migration with UPS: Migrating CATIA V5 data from Designer Central to the new 3DEXPERIENCE 2021x environment integrated with PowerBy UPS.
  • SmarTeam Data Migration for On-Demand Use: Facilitating on-demand data migration between different business units and customers using SmarTeam provisions.
  • Identifying Multiple Revisions of Same Reference: The discovery of numerous revisions of a single reference within a root assembly posed a significant challenge.
  • Uniform File Names from Designer Central: Data sourced from Designer Central presented a complication where all revisions shared identical file names.
  • Compatibility with UPS Integration: The integration with UPS was hindered by its inability to accommodate multiple CAD items sharing identical file names within a single CATIA session, resulting in assembly opening errors.
  • Data Inconsistency in Designer Central: Inconsistencies within the data retrieved from Designer Central further compounded the challenges.
  • Challenges with Attribute Mapping:
    Mapping attributes encountered notable challenges, complicating the integration process.

Solution We Provided

  • Phase 1 – Successful Upgrade to 3DEXPERIENCE 2021x: Executed the upgrade process, addressing compatibility issues and ensuring seamless integration with CATIA V5 via Designer Central in the new environment.
  • Phase 2 – CATIA V5 Data Migration Using PowerBy UPS: Steepgraph leveraged PowerBy UPS technology to facilitate the migration of CATIA V5 data from the legacy system (Designer Central) to 3DEXPERIENCE 2021x.
  • SmarTeam Data Migration Strategy: Implemented customized data mapping and transformation processes to facilitate seamless migration from SmarTeam to 3DEXPERIENCE 2021x using UPS technology.
  • Assembly Reference Correction:
    • Identified multiple revisions of the same reference in a root assembly.
    • Manually corrected assembly references across all 25 assemblies to ensure they reflect the latest revisions.
  • Data Loading from Designer Central:
    • Discovered that all revisions from Designer Central had identical file names.
    • Resolved by modifying the code to enable consistent loading of the latest structure despite file name duplications.

Customer Testimonial

“SteepGraph provided their ETL tool to migrate from 3DEXPERIENCE 2017x to 21X. and from Smarteam to 3DEXPERIENCE. In about 10 months, we could change the methodology to work on the platform, migrate all the data, and test everything. And we didn’t stop operation.

We finished the project on time and in cost. For me what’s important are the technical capabilities and I didn’t find it in other companies or other partners.”
