Select Analyze to analyze the result of the simulation. Therefore it builds a real manufacturing view of the design Part with all the drilling and milling features to be machined. The Video simulation capability is used in this task. Therefore, the manufacturing view presents the tree of machining references features to be machined: Click the red Bottom in the sensitive icon then select the pocket bottom in the 3D window.

Locally creates a prismatic geometrical machining feature of a design part for milling and drilling machining. The pocket boundary Guide. Select the Macros tab to specify an Approach macro with a linear Approach path of 50mm.

You can refer to Edit the Tool of an Operation for more information. You machiniing refer to Define Macros of an Operation for more information. Geometrical machining features integration in prismatic machining product: Click OK to create the Profile Contouring operation.

All geometrical machining features can be fully machined with all CATIA – Prismatic Machining PMG strategies, from elementary machining operation creation up to automatic complex prlsmatic process application in both drilling and milling domains.

Also, Milling features referenced surfaces are highlighted in machinning view. All CATIA standard holes and milling features, such as pockets, steps and cutouts, can be individually created.


Training will begin with 2-D contouring, pocketing, drilling, tapping, boring, and turning operations then advance to more complex 3-D surface toolpath development. The user can automatically generate all prismatic geometrical machining features that have to be machined from a given design part.

Use the Sort by Machining Features machinnig command to see how the Prismatic machining area is referenced by the Pocketing and Profile Contouring operations. Management of recognized machining features in the manufacturing view presentation,editing, highlighting: JavaScript is Disabled For the best experience and to ensure full functionality of this site, please enable JavaScript in your browser.

Please complete our form for more information and a PDC pirsmatic will contact you. Axial machining features are displayed in a TO DO LIST with a summary of their dimensioning characteristics, for a better readability, and their positions are displayed in parallel in 3D view. Click OK to create the Pocketing operation.

When the same Prismatic machining area is used in another operation, the tool axis takes precedence and the computation is done based on the tool axis. You can see that the remaining material has now been machined by the Profile Contouring operation. This feature references the selected pocket geometry. Length 20 weeks 1 session per week 4 hours per session Total Class: Thanks to local feature recognition techniques, the user only has to select faces on the skin of a design part, and the system creates the feature automatically.

It dramatically reduces programming times by automatically building up all geometric areas that must be machined with prismatic machining operations, decreasing time spent in geometry selections.


In the Pocketing dialog box, select the Prismatic machining area. All generated geometrical machining features are fully integrated in the Prismatic Machining product. The operation’s geometry shows the elements referenced by the feature pocket bottom, guide, and so on.

Prismatic Machining

You can see that the pocketing operation leaves some unmachined material in the corners. These features can be used in either individual prismatic machining strategies or complex machining processes, further smoothing design to manufacturing integration. Class Selection Please complete our form for more information and a PDC representative will contact machinung. Select Manufacturing View to display the Manufacturing View.

Recommended Prerequisites Completion of a formal training course in basic modeling and surface design using CATIA or equivalent experience priskatic be required. The Analyze functionality is used in this task. The resulting prismatic geometrical machining features prismxtic managed in the manufacturing view in the prismatic machining workbench. Participants interested in this program must be able to demonstrate their skills using CATIA for part modeling and design.

If required, the user can easily choose feature types to be recognized. Integrates geometrical machining features into the Prismatic Machining product.

Click OK to create the feature called Prismatic machining area. For the best experience and to ensure full functionality of this site, please enable JavaScript in your browser.

Select the Macros tab to specify a Retract macro with a linear Retract path of 50mm.
