DOES DASSAULT SYSTEMES HAVE A PLAN FOR MANAGING AND ACCESSING (V2), V3, V4, AND V5 DATA AS WE START TO TRANSITION TO V6?

HOW ARE WE GOING TO BE ASSURED THAT THE GEOMETRY IS NOT CHANGING AS WE OPEN OLDER VERSIONS IN V6? WE HAVE PRODUCTS IN THE FIELD BASED UPON DESIGNS IN THESE OLDER VERSIONS THAT CANNOT CHANGE ‘AUTOMATICALLY’, JUST BECAUSE WE OPEN THE MODELS IN A NEW RELEASE.

All V4 native formats to be visualized and printed are supported in V5 without any migration. Similarly, V4 and V5 native data can be viewed and printed without any translation in Version 6.

Regarding V3, only drawings can be viewed in V5 and Version 6 without any translation.

For upward transition, it is requested to use the standard Versions’ transition upgrade path.
