    Help

    I have been having a problem getting the CAD image set up on a program.
    I keep getting this error message: (a .JPG is attachedthat shows the message)

    Here is what I am doing; I have virtually no commands in the program, just the initial setup stuff. I am merging a couple of CAD files to create the image I need since our cad-jockeys can't seem to get it to me in a usable form.

    The original customer data file is in catiaV5. What we do when we receive that is set up a directory on a secure folder and then create a .stp file, a UG file and an .igs file. They do this mainly so that I can pick whichever I need to get a program written. Sometimes PCD is a release behind Catia so I will need to use a different file type.

    Sometimes the file I choose does not display all of the features I need or it may be that some surfaces don't display and then I can sort of cut and paste a cad file together in PCD deleting some stuff and merging an igs file with a stp or Catia file. I create layers so that I can easily turn them on or off as needed.

    Well, here is what happened this morning: I snagged a few surfaces from the .stp file and then deleted the rest. Then I snagged the main body by merging in the original Catia file. Then I grabbed the Target Datum points from a different stp file (don't ask). Now I have been saving with a different name with each addition and everything is going hunky dory.
    Now I need to grab the pilots from a different version of the original catia file (again, don't ask). That comes in fine. I save immediately. I open it up and now I have to delete everything except the pilots. That works. I save and then when I try to open I get the invalid argument error.

    Any clues?

    What a long, strange trip it's been.

    Hi John, why do you have to delete everything except the pilots. Cant you just turn the rest off?

      Yea, that's what I ended up doing. I was hoping someone would know what was causing the error.
