The operation’s geometry is initialized with the pocket bottom and guide elements referenced by the feature. Make the Manufacturing Program current in the specification tree, then select Pocketing. Length 20 weeks 1 session per week 4 hours per session Total Class: You can refer to Edit the Tool of an Operation for more information.

Select the Tool tab to specify a tool with a 16mm nominal diameter. The operation’s geometry shows the elements referenced by the feature pocket bottom, guide, and so on.

In the Profile Contouring dialog box, select the Prismatic machining area. Close the Analysis and Replay dialog boxes. The pocket boundary Guide. By using our website you consent to all cookies in accordance with our cookie policy.


This feature references the selected pocket geometry. Automatically build geometrical machining features for prismatic machining using, advanced feature recognition techniques. 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.

The Video simulation capability is used in this task. You can prksmatic to Define Macros of an Operation for more information. Select the Tool tab to specify a tool with a 5mm nominal diameter. Axial machining features are displayed in a TO DO LIST with a summary of their dimensioning characteristics, prismaticc a better readability, and their positions are displayed in parallel in 3D view.


Create and Use a Prismatic Machining Area

Geometrical machining features integration in prismatic machining product: You can see that the pocketing operation leaves some unmachined material in the corners. Select the Macros tab to specify a Retract macro with a linear Retract path of 50mm. This website uses cookies to improve prusmatic experience.

Note that to enable this simulation you must reference the design part in the Part Operation editor. It provides prismatkc set of functions that generate all prismatic geometrical machining features of the design part to be machined.

These features can be used in either individual prismatic machining strategies or complex machining processes, further smoothing design to manufacturing integration. Integrates geometrical machining features into the Prismatic Machining product. Locally creates a prismatic geometrical machining feature of a design part for milling and drilling machining: Therefore, the manufacturing view presents the tree of machining references features to be machined: JavaScript is Disabled For prismwtic best experience and to ensure full functionality of this site, please enable JavaScript in your browser.

All CATIA standard holes and milling features, such as pockets, steps and cutouts, can be individually created. Select Analyze to analyze the result of the simulation. The Analyze functionality is used in this task. Verify the Profile Contouring operation by simulating the tool path in Video simulation mode.

All recognized geometrical machining features are presented in the manufacturing view of the design part to be machined by the CATIA Prismatic Machining product.


All CATIA standard holes and milling features such as pockets, steps and cutouts are supported and can be recognized. Note that it is available only when the NC Manufacturing Verification product is installed. Use the Sort by Machining Features contextual command to see how the Prismatic machining area is referenced by the Pocketing and Profile Contouring operations. You can see ptismatic the remaining material has now been machined by the Profile Contouring operation.

However, if the feature is used by another operation, it is not possible to modify its geometry in the machining operation editor.

CATIA – Prismatic Machining Preparation Assistant

Click OK to create the feature called Prismatic machining area. The tool entry direction for a Prismatic machining area is the normal to the selected bottom. Training will begin with 2-D contouring, pocketing, drilling, tapping, boring, and turning operations then advance to more complex 3-D surface toolpath development.

Participants interested in this program must be able to demonstrate their skills using CATIA for part modeling and design.

CATIA – Prismatic Machining Preparation Assistant

Click OK to create the Profile Contouring operation. Product Highlights Automatically creates all prismatic geometrical machining features of a design part for milling and drilling machining. Select the Macros tab to specify an Approach macro with a linear Approach path of 50mm.
