Catia Users

Created by Ananth Narayan on 8 March, 2018

Greetings, all

I am a long-time SolidWorks and NX user, and I am now learning Catia for use at my new employer.

I want to extract edges from a large and complicated model, after which I wish to hide those components in the model, or "product", as Catia seems to call it, from the drawing, leaving only the extracted edges behind. I need to show some secondary but relevant components in dashed lines, key components in solid lines, and none of the gazillions of rivet holes, screw holes etc.

What is the easiest way to do this? I have looked into the overload properties, but it will take me ages to do what should be a day's work.

Thank you.
