RE: sphere on catiaV5


i c that whatever u have given above is a CATscript.

try running it in VB script. it will pass. i tried it out.
im running on Catia V5R11. to change ur editor into VBscript goto TOOLS>OPTIONS>General then click the macros tab and change ur editor.then try ur Sphere.


RE: sphere on catiaV5


I am trying to generate a macro for "shaft" creation. I tried with different profiles and axes, but I cannot generate a functional macro. It gives me an error when I run it.

Here is a part of the code I have:

Set shapeFactory1 = part1.ShapeFactory
Set reference1 = part1.CreateReferenceFromName("")
Set shaft1 = shapeFactory1.AddNewShaftFromRef(reference1)
Set bodies1 = part1.Bodies
Set body1 = bodies1.Item("MechanicalTool.1")
Set sketches1 = body1.Sketches
Set sketch1 = sketches1.Item("Sketch.1")
Set reference2 = part1.CreateReferenceFromObject(sketch1)
shaft1.SetProfileElement reference2

And the error is "the method update failed"

Does anybody have a cue?
