Delete Empty Part Bodies

Delete Empty Part Bodies A utility CATScript macro for CatiaV5 to clean up a all empty PartBodies in a CATPart. Usage: Assuming that one needs to clean e.g. a CATAllPart from all unneccessary geometry. After the clean operation (by selecting geometry visually on the screen rather than in the object tree) a lot of empty PartBodies might remain. In such a case, executing the macro is much faster than going through the object tree to manually select and delete those empty PartBodies.

Export All Drawings 2 PDF

Export All Drawings 2 PDF PURPOSE: This utility CATScript macro for CatiaV5 can be used to create PDF documents for all CATDrawing files which are stored in a directory structure.

Carbon Composites

Carbon Composites Carbon fiber or CF, is a material consisting of extremely thin fibers about 0.005–0.010 mm in diameter and composed of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are bonded together in microscopic crystals that are aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber. The crystal alignment makes the fiber very strong for its size. Several thousand carbon fibers are twisted together to form a yarn and woven into a fabric.

Product To Step Export

Product To Step Export Purpose: A CATScript macro for CatiaV5 which allows to export all individual 3D models which belong to the current product to STEP format. Using this macro could be a real time saver, especially if the models are very big, or if there are a lot of 3D models which needs to be exported. Note: You can use show/noshow to specify what components to export. If a component is set to noshow in the product tree, it is not taken into account by the macro.
