Select Manufacturing View to display the Manufacturing View. Verify the Profile Contouring operation by simulating the tool path in Video simulation mode. Mahining Prismatic Machining Area. Product Highlights Automatically creates all prismatic geometrical machining features of a design part for milling and drilling machining. Also, Milling features referenced surfaces are highlighted in 3D view. Please complete our form for more information and a PDC representative will contact you.

These features can be used in either individual prismatic machining strategies or complex machining processes, further smoothing design to manufacturing integration. Geometrical machining features integration in prismatic machining product: Training will begin with 2-D contouring, pocketing, drilling, tapping, boring, and turning operations then advance to more complex 3-D surface toolpath development.

In the Pocketing dialog box, select the Prismatic machining area. Automatically build geometrical machining features for prismatic machining using, advanced feature recognition techniques. All generated geometrical machining features are fully integrated in the Prismatic Machining product. The user can locally create a particular geometrical machining feature on a specific area of the design part.

In the Priwmatic Contouring dialog box, select the Prismatic machining area.

Create and Use a Prismatic Machining Area

All CATIA standard prismatlc and milling features such as pockets, steps and cutouts are supported and can be recognized. The resulting prismatic geometrical machining features are managed in the manufacturing view in the prismatic machining workbench. Note that to enable this simulation you must reference the design part in the Part Operation editor. Click OK to create the feature called Prismatic machining area. The user can automatically generate all prismatic geometrical machining cqtia that have to be machined from a given design part.


All geometrical machining features can be fully machined with all CATIA – Prismatic Machining PMG strategies, from elementary machining operation creation up to automatic complex machining process application in both drilling and milling domains. You can see that the pocketing operation leaves some unmachined material in the corners.

If required, the user can easily choose feature types to be recognized. Locally creates a prismatic geometrical machining feature of a design part for milling and drilling machining: You can see that the remaining material has now been machined by the Profile Contouring operation. The operation’s geometry is initialized with the pocket bottom and guide elements referenced by the feature. Integrates geometrical machining features into the Prismatic Cayia product.

Recommended Prerequisites Completion of a formal training course in basic modeling and surface design using CATIA or equivalent experience will be required. Select the Macros tab to specify an Approach macro with a linear Approach path of 50mm. The Video simulation mschining is used in this task. Use the Sort by Prismxtic Features contextual command to see how the Prismatic machining area is referenced by the Pocketing and Profile Contouring operations.

Axial machining features are displayed in a TO DO LIST with a summary of their dimensioning characteristics, for pfismatic better readability, and their positions are displayed in parallel in 3D view. Locally creates a prismatic geometrical machining feature of a design part for milling and drilling machining. You can refer to Define Macros of an Operation for more information. The Analyze functionality is used in this task. Close the Analysis and Replay dialog boxes.


The tool entry direction for a Prismatic machining area prismatci the normal to the selected bottom. Make the Manufacturing Program current in the specification tree, then select Pocketing.

Select the Macros tab to ,achining a Retract macro with a linear Retract path of 50mm. Management of recognized machining features in the manufacturing view presentation,editing, highlighting: Select the Tool tab to specify a tool with a 16mm nominal diameter.

All recognized geometrical machining features are presented in the manufacturing view of the design part to be machined by the CATIA Prismatic Machining product. Click OK to create the Profile Contouring operation.

Verify the Pocketing operation by machihing the tool path in Video simulation mode. Note that it is available only when the NC Manufacturing Verification product is installed.

This website uses cookies to improve user experience. 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.

This feature references the selected pocket geometry.
