Catia IUA Call for 3D-Axis

Catia IUA Call for 3D-Axis

Catia IUA Call for 3D-Axis

Is there a IUA call similar to GIRDAS (for 2D axis systems) to read the origin and vectors for a 3D axis system.  I have looked thru the online Catia documentation until my eyeballs are falling out.  Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Catia IUA Call for 3D-Axis

there is no direct call, but You can use
 GUMSEL to select axs
 GUSPOP to get axs id form stack
 GIRIDE to get axs name
 GIRMAT to read axs matrix

regards TPale

RE: Catia IUA Call for 3D-Axis

It soyunds like all you are conserned about is whats up in the DRAW mode .............Each view created is driven by the active axis in use at the time the draw view is created...............In most cases its the space geometry that difines the draw axis pending the active axis in space when creating a aux view........You must have an understanding of the relationship betweeen aux vu and spc vu (ACTIVE AXIS) each time a draw view is created.Think of holding an object in your hands and visually projection it down to draw vu.............from space........The key to understanding the above is to be able to manage the axis system throughout the design process....for deveping aux views and the space geometry in space.
