Inventor >> CATIA V4 (Dassault)

The following settings are recommended up to Autodesk Inventor 2017 and CATIA V4.2.5 (Dassault).

Inventor - System 

  • Only standard colors are transferred. Sub-elements of objects cannot be colored individually in the systems.

Inventor - STEP Preprocessor

  • To export a STEP File please choose File -> Save Copy as.. and the STEP file.
  • The translator uses as default file extension *.stp.
  • The default setting for STEP export is AP203. For AP214 export you should always use the latest STEP standard. In this case AP214 IS.
  • The export log file "filename.xlo" gives further information.

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.
