CATIA V4 (Dassault) >> OneSpace Designer

The following settings are recommended up to CATIA V4.2.5 (Dassault) and CoCreate Modeling 16.5.

CATIA V4 (Dassault) - System

  • No elements should be placed in NOSHOW/NOPICK.
  • Model should be cleaned of all unused information, because the translator exports the complete content of CATIA-parts. Delete:
  • Unused DETAILS (in all workspaces)
  • Unused elements from NOSHOW (in all workspaces)
  • Drawings
  • Update SOLID-M into SOLID-E with CATSOE utility.
  • Perform SOLIDE/UPDATE, also if message UPDATE ALREADY DONE appears. (Regeneration removes inconsistencies.)
  • Generate Volumes from SOLID-E and delete SOLID-E in all workspaces. (Geometry is still exported as a solid in STEP.)
  • Scaled and mirrored dittos (EXPLODE function) should not be used.
  • Before export elements of special CATIA modules (e.g. PIPING, BUILDING DESIGN) need to be converted to STEP conform elements.
  • Use CATCLN.
  • Assembly structures in SETs should be transferred to DETAILS.
  • Link all SETs if possible (SETS -> LINK).
  • Solids/Volumes consisting of separate Bodies should be avoided.
  • Objects used for Boolean operations should show good penetration.

STEP Preprocessor

  • Option "Use Short Names" should be deselected (unless appropriate libraries are available).
  • Recommended settings in Declaration File:
  • CATST1.STEP.USE_SHORT_ALIAS=FALSE
  • CATST1.STEP.EXPORT_NO_SHOW=FALSE
  • CATST1.STEP.EXPORT_UNUSED_DETAILS=FALSE

STEP File

  • No adjustment is necessary.

OneSpace Designer - STEP Postprocessor

  • The properties for STEP import can be found in the file -> open -> options dialog
  • Set the accuracy to automatic (default) to use the accuracy of the STEP file.
  • If the accuracy is customized, make sure that the accuracy setting is the same or less than the accuracies setting used to generate the part being loaded.
  • When associated messages are returned during the import of the STEP file the accuracy should be adjusted.
  • If a product with multiple bodies is imported, Solid Designer creates an assembly.
  • Blended edges are not recognized as such, and it is not possible to modify blends using standard OneSpace Designer.
  • The import log file "step_load_log" gives further information.

OneSpace Designer – System

  • Shaded view is helpful and gives a first impression of the model quality.
  • To ensure the model quality is OK a complete model check should be performed.
