How to line-up dimensions in CATIA V5

Do you know how to line-up your messy dimensions on the drawing?

If your dimensions are not organized into a system, or dimensions are not aligned according to each other, you can align them with command Line-Up. As you can see on the picture below, distance between dimensions is not regular. As well as distance between smallest dimension and part´s edge. And how to line-up dimensions on the drawing?

How to extract geometry from CGR

How to extract geometry from CGR model in CATIA V5?

In case you would like to extract geometry from cgr file you cannot use common tools. CGR (Catia graphics representation) file only presents the outer surface of a part or assembly. This surface is tessellated (consist only of triangles). This format is only for representation. You can use it for clash analysis, measure distances between elements, etc. Continue reading “How to extract geometry from CGR”
