The objective of this program is to facilitate the work of people who have to obtain a lot of measures to supply the starting material of various parts.
The final version (not trial) gets an Excel file with all these measures and the name of the part to which it corresponds.
We have to open a CATPart. If you have to measure the parts of an opened Product, we can get the measures starting each Part in a new window and activate it before giving the Update button of the program.
The program creates a temporary working Geometrical Set.
To use the program you must have a valid software license.
You also need to have CATIA V5 licenses KT1.
When we double-click the program icon, once started and CATIA loaded with a Part, we will see this panel with the following information.In the top box a label with the name of the active Part.
The program has the following buttons having functions shown bellow. All selection buttons (Body, Line direction and perpendicular line) are used first selecting (or later) the geometry in the graphic area or in the tree and then hitting the corresponding button.
Flags buttons to choose the language for successive starting times avoiding changing language on every application start-up.
We will select (in any order) a “Body”, and two lines, using the buttons for this purpose.
If we choose a border or edge (topological elements that does not exist in the tree), it creates a temporary “Extract”.
The program creates a temporary Geometrical Set called “Measure”.
To continue adding data to the file, we should not close Excel, close the active Part or simply load another Part. Then we hit the Update button (in the program, not in the CATIA, of course) and repeat the process.
If we have enabled the option we can close the program without saving Part. CAUTION! Not advised. In this case we only need to open a new Part and hit the Update button.
The data will be added in the following lines in the opened Excel file.
Although the program allows you to select either in the graphic area or in the specification tree, we must be sure that the selected Body (whose name appears in the label) is what we want to measure.
In the case of Parts which have Boolean operations, if we select one of a CATPart Body and selected the PartBody, the result is that we have measured only a part of the piece and not the entire piece is usually represented by the PartBody. To select the PartBody we can select both in the specification tree or one feature that links directly to the PartBody.
In the bellow figure, we can do the selection of the PartBody in the graphic area or in the specification tree by selecting the feature “Chamfer.2”.
Occasionally you can get this message:
This has no importance. We can close and continue.
