As an introduction, the module CATIA Generative Shape Design is used very frequently by CATIA engineers, I personally use this module in very work day.
If you are hired in a company that is using CATIA I’m sure that you receive a task to save the CATPart file without history (“dead” solid), also this practice is also applicable if you are freelancer.
Personally I use DMU Navigator for a single reason, to use the command Translation or Rotation in .CATProduct files. With this command you can select lines, points, axis and planes to apply translate, rotate, position or transformations to any components.
Today I needed to export a large drawing document from Drawing module in CATIA and I saw that I must save manually each sheet one by one, and this job takes time and I dislike to do that each day for my documents that have more than 15 sheets…
If you read my blog, you saw already that I like to help you to find the best way to work fast and easy in CATIA. In this article, you can find what you need to do, to set your CATIA keyboard shortcuts for any commands.
The select tool in CATIA is very easy to use and save you a huge time when you need to select multiple type of parts (points, lines, curves, etc.) because this tool can make selection by multiples criteria’s like color, type of parts, name of parts from tree and more.
