Catia Coordinate Dimension Table

Catia Coordinate Dimension Table

RE: Catia Coordinate Dimension Table

I'm not sure what you mean, could you provide more details?

RE: Catia Coordinate Dimension Table

Hi Iscariot,

Thanks for you prompt reply.
I have an assembly:

The task is clear: I need to create a drawing from it.
The ISO View in drawing would contain the chart/map of the points from 3D (please, see the picture use as a reference, in the first message).
The 3D Assembly has its curves/points used for the pipe(tube):

What I want is to create a 2D representation of the pipe on the 2D drawing, for manufacturing reason.
I did find an option: show the points and guide in 3D, then updating the views on 2D (making sure to check 3D Points and 3D Wireframe boxes in the view properties):

Also, I have to "Lock" the view.
But I wanted to know if there is a different method.
Thanks a lot!

Thanks for your reply.
Reviewing your reply: " - Show points and centerline wireframe in 3D, then mark in view properties the corresponding check box (points and 3D wireframe), update view.". Do we need to "Lock" the 2D View in order to keep the updates? I am not sure yet......
