CATIA V4 (Dassault) >> Solid Edge

The following settings are recommended up to CATIA V4.2.5 (Dassault) and Solid Edge ST 8.

CATIA V4 (T-System) - 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.

CATIA V4 (Dassault) - 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.

STEP Postprocessor

  • To import a STEP File please choose File -> Open... and select STEP file.
  • It is recommended to import the STEP files first without any automatic healing (in options selectable).

Solid Edge - System

  • In case of an assembly a *.cfg file is created. This one contains the Display Configurations of the model.
