CATIA – Prismatic Machining Preparation Assistant

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

Make the Manufacturing Program current in the specification tree, then select Pocketing. Select the Macros tab to specify an Approach macro with a linear Approach path of 50mm. Thanks to local feature recognition techniques, the user only has to select faces datia the prismtic of a design part, and the system creates the feature automatically.

The Video simulation capability is used in this task. In the Pocketing dialog box, select the Prismatic machining area. Click OK to create the feature called Prismatic machining area. Select the Tool tab to specify a tool with a 5mm nominal diameter.

In the Profile Contouring dialog box, select the Prismatic machining area. The user can automatically generate all prismatic geometrical machining features 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.


Completion of a formal training course in basic modeling machniing surface design using CATIA or mwchining experience will be required. 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. Locally creates a prismatic geometrical machining feature of a design part for milling and drilling machining.

Select Manufacturing View to display cqtia Manufacturing View. Click OK to create the Pocketing operation. Any modification to this geometry in the operation will also modify the geometry of the feature.

Create and Use a Prismatic Machining Area

The pocket boundary Guide. Select the Macros tab to specify a Retract macro with a linear Retract path of 50mm. Select Prismatic Kachining Area. You can refer to Edit the Tool of an Operation for more information. Length 20 weeks 1 session per week 4 hours per session Total Class: All generated geometrical machining features are fully integrated in the Prismatic Machining product. You can see that the remaining material has now been machined by the Profile Contouring operation.

Axial machining features machhining 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. Product Highlights Automatically creates all prismatic geometrical machining features of a design part for prismxtic and drilling machining.


Note that to enable this simulation you must reference the design part in the Part Operation editor.

CATIA – Prismatic Machining Preparation Assistant

Participants interested in this program must be able to demonstrate their skills using CATIA for part modeling and design. Verify the Pocketing operation by simulating the tool path in Video simulation mode. The operation’s geometry shows the elements referenced by the feature pocket bottom, guide, and so on. This website uses cookies to improve user experience. Geometrical machining features integration in prismatic machining product: Close the Analysis and Replay dialog boxes.

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

You can refer to Define Macros of an Operation for more information. The resulting prismatic geometrical machining features are managed in the manufacturing view in the prismatic machining workbench. Note that it is available only when the NC Manufacturing Verification product is installed.

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

You can see that the pocketing operation leaves some unmachined material in the corners. Therefore it builds a real manufacturing view of the design Part with all the drilling and pirsmatic features to be mxchining. The Analyze functionality is used in this task.
