Does anybody work with the Catia V5 file-reader in Pro-Surf? How are your experiences with this tool? In our version it is not functionable. What do I have to do to read native Catia V5 files?

Best Regards

Rainer

Several bugs have been very recently uncovered in the catia v5 reader. you should ask your supplier to get you the very latest copies of prosurf/catiav5

I´ve talked to our supplier, but he told me, that there are no surfaces and curves. But Catia is a surface based CAD program. Every CATpart consist of surfaces. Maybe our version ist too old. But it is the newest we´ve got. It´s version 3.150A Build 522.

Best Regards

Hi Rainer,

I have got to deal with the same problem! As far as I understood the adapco-people, this Catia reader is not included to Star-cd yet (may be i am wrong). At the moment I am changing iges-file between the two programs, after repairing them in pro-surf. It is working with simple geometries, but still not very comfortable. If you have found a better way for data exchange between catia and star-cd, I would be very interested in that.

Good luck, thomas

If I have to deal with Catia (V4) models, I read them into ThinkDesign (www.think3.com) via the native reader and do all the fixing there. Then IGES export to pro-surf.

If you have V5 models you can either save them as V4 or use the V5 native reader.

Going this way is much more comfortable than fixing anything in pro-surf.
