TDM 3D Tool Graphic Builder, CAA V5 Based


Engineering Domain : Manufacturing
Prerequisites : MD1 V5
Available since : 2004-02-29, V5R12

Product Overview

The ToolGraphicBuilder CAAV5 Based (TGB) is a software tool to generate tool graphics of assemblies directly in CATIA V5. Therefore, a small TDM menue is integrated in CATIA V5. The TGB quickly generates 3D graphics of symmetrical rotating assemblies as CATProduct.

Here is how it works:

1. Import of assemblies from TDM into CATIA V5: bill of materials and tool components graphics in DXF-Format (2D)

2. Creation of CAT Drawings (2D) directly in CATIA V5

3. Creation of an outline contour and definition of cutting and non-cutting parts (CUT/NONCUT)

The TDM ToolGraphicBuilder CAAV5 Based is a solution for users which have already TDM in use and 2D-DXF graphics of tools available.

Customer Benefits

  • Creation of 3D solids for tool assemblies in the CATIA V5 environment
  • The graphics include all geometry parameters with differentiation of cutting and noncutting parts.
  • Dramatic Increase in processing accuracy and reliabiltiy in the production area.
  • Reliable tool path replay and material removal simulation with true-to-scale and realistic tools.
