Catia V5 not showing points

Catia V5 not showing points

Catia V5 not showing points

We just upgraded to Catia V5 R21 and in part design it's showing planes about 4 times the size they should be as well as not displaying any points created with GSD
Any thoughts or solutions?

RE: Catia V5 not showing points

I think the size of planes is controlled in Tools > Options. I don't have CATIA open at the moment, but it's probably on the Display tab under the Infrastructure > Part Infrastructure section.

If not, then try the Mechanical Design section of the tree in the Tools > Options window. Lastly, you might try one of the tabs under General > Display.

It could be your view setting.

View - Render style - Custom View - All points.

tools options:

With Pixel Culling >= 3 you wont see point in 3D.

Lower the value to see points.

Worked like a charm, thanks guys!

RE: Catia V5 not showing points

Damn itsmyjob, that is some funky stuff. You can't tell me that was the intention when Dassault thought of Pixel Culling as a technique to simplify the visualisation process?

RE: Catia V5 not showing points

it does help when you have big assembly with zillions of tiny bits...
