I have a bunch of files Caatia saved in my license of V5 R21, and when I tried to open them in the university computers which have R20I got a bunch of errors.

Apparently, files saved in one release aren’t even compatible in the next lower release. I can’t save as step either in my student license, so I have to convert the cat.

I’ve heard of downward compatibility, but I found it impossible to use properly, and the directions I found for it online are useless. Anyone know I’d go about converting?


I got a tutorial for you to convert a higher version file to lower version. Answered with a tutorial: Using the downward compatibility utility will bring in the model as a dumb solid. Saving as a step file gives you the exact same result.

CATIA for Designers

The downward compatibility utility is basically a waste of time in my opinion, save it as a step and rebuild the design tree with the “feature recognition” feature if you have the module. I think this is not possible, Sorry!

It is a good reason that the faculty should “Upgrade” on R21, because you are not the only student with that licence. I proof abhijeet answer. Although you can change final documents to other formats like STEP and V518 have tried to convert it by using The batch management tool but when doing it, it does not recognize anything more than CAT parts.

Thank you very much. Somebody told me that there is already a way to convert it with the data history by downward compatibility tool.
