SolidWorks >> CATIA V4 (Dassault)

The following settings are recommended up to SolidWorks 2016 and CATIA V4.2.5 (Dassault).

SolidWorks – System

SolidWorks - STEP Preprocessor

  • To export a STEP file choose File -> Save as..., as file type choose STEP-Format (step, stp) and go to Options. A new dialog box appears.
  • Under Output as the following options can be selected:
  • Solid/Surface geometry: the geometry will be exported as solid and surface bodies. This is the recommended option.
  • 3D curves: solid and surface bodies will be exported as wireframe entities and all 3D curves are also saved.
  • Export sketch entities: export all the items in 3D curves, plus all 2D and 3D sketches in the document.
  • Output coordinate system: by selecting default, no transformation matrix will be applied.
  • Export face/edge properties: Exports face and edge properties. Clear this option to improve export performance.
  • Split periodic faces: Splits periodic faces, such as cylindrical faces, into two. Splitting a periodic face can improve the quality of the export but can affect performance.

STEP File

  • In the filename syntax special characters (especially / * %) or umlauts must be avoided.
  • The STEP file extension must be changed to *.step.

CATIA V4 (Dassault) - STEP Postprocessor

  • Identical curve tolerance should be set according to desired model space. (default: 0.1 corresponds to 10m model space)
  • Recommended settings in declaration file:
  • st1cat.EXACT_SOLIDS_CREATION=TRUE (creates SOL instead of VOL)
  • st1cat.TOPOLOGY_HEALING=TRUE
  • st1.cat.CATIA.REPLACE=TRUE
  • The log file filename.log gives hints about translation success. Check for converted/failed STEP entities in the summary at the end of the file. 

CATIA V4 (Dassault) – System

  • Each component of an imported assembly is located in a separate workspace.
  • The master workspace shows the whole assembly.
  • To remove the text added to the model use: TEXT -> ERASE -> *FAC+*SUR etc.
  • Shaded view is helpful for a first impression of model quality.
  • With IDENTIFY look for received SOL, VOL or SKI.
  • Use CATCLN.
