Conver igs point file in to CTIA cloud file.

Conver igs point file in to CTIA cloud file.

Conver igs point file in to CTIA cloud file.

When we imported multi point file from UNIGRAPHICS in igs format, CATIA can't treat it like a cloud file.
How we can convert any point igs file in to CATIA cloud file.

RE: Conver igs point file in to CTIA cloud file.


I think you can go to the Free Style Workbench, there should be a "Import Cloud" icon, then select the iges file, I did that many times and it worked for me...

RE: Conver igs point file in to CTIA cloud file.

Catia V5 dosn't recognise iges point entities in the import point cloud function which I find a bit strange. What I have had to do is either manually edit the iges file or translate it to DXF and use a DXF to xyz utility I found on the web. The last option has given me good results and if you need the utility ( its freeware ) I should be able to point you to the website.
