CATIA Macro create dead solid?

CATIA Macro create dead solid?

CATIA Macro create dead solid?

(OP)
Hi. Is it possible to create one solid with "dead" geometry from the product?
Those macro similar to command ->Crtl+C in PartyBody and them with the mouse right bottom click in "Paste Special" and "As Result"

RE: CATIA Macro create dead solid?

It won't be one, but a dead solid for each part of the assembly. Only visible parts are considered. In Assembly Design: Tools-Generate CATPArt From Product...
OR from a workbench called ProductDataFiltering in Infrastructure

RE: CATIA Macro create dead solid?

You can do exactly what you're describing: copy and paste as result.

Is it possible to somehow do this with one solid?
For my idea it is not suitable when there are a lot of bodies...

RE: CATIA Macro create dead solid?

(OP)
I mean to get from the entire document one such body with dead geometry and using code.

RE: CATIA Macro create dead solid?

"Is it possible to somehow do this with one solid?"

If you have a lot of bodies and want to automatically merge them into a single part body in assembly design, then you go to: "Tools | Generate CATPart from Product" and select the box to merge the bodies, then click OK.

Not sure what you mean "and using code". You can always record a macro if you want.

RE: CATIA Macro create dead solid?

When I generate an allcatpart, I still have many other bodies inside:

RE: CATIA Macro create dead solid?

Do you want all your dead solids under one PartBody?

RE: CATIA Macro create dead solid?

(OP)
I want all the elements of the open product to become one solid. Like in the picture with the bolt above.

RE: CATIA Macro create dead solid?

That's not possible I'm afraid. Your best option is Generate Catpart from catproduct.

well, first step would be the Catpart from Catproduct.
Then one could combine all the bodies into one, by adding them to the partbody.
last step would be to copy that boolean-added-full-body and paste it as result to another file...
