  • Catia--iges--pcdmis

    Not sure if I should post this New Question in an older relevant thread or start a new one, could use some usage feedback please.
    My problem is this, I can only import my catia V5R16 into 4.1 as Iges or STL.. I'm getting good data except NO axis system. (I've done "Show All" to see if it is out in space). Is there a way to do an alignment on a part like this so that I can use the cad data? Feel like I'm falling backwards off the "learning curve'' so any help would be a life-saver. Thanks.

    You should be able to do an iterative alignment...

      Thanks, That is what I thought, but didn't learn how at hexagon for beginners.
      I know there have been some extensive posts on this already so I read those and have a go. Thanks again.

        No problem. The iterative alignment was a whole lot easier for me to learn than the whole cad=part thing... Good Luck!

          agreed....cad=part works, but is very tricky, can mess up your day real quick.
          iterative is quick to do and very simple once you learn it.

          cad=part...if you do it wrong (and it won't tell you its wrong), you have to start all over...meaning a new program

          iterative...if you do it wrong (it will tell you), you just redo your alignment or the features of your alignment, not the whole program

            You can re-do a CAD=PART over and over and over again. Doing ti wrong the first time does not necessarly ruin what you have done. If you can tell what you did wrong, you simply change it and re-do CAD=PART.
