Export Entities As
  • SOLIDE (Default) – When selected, KeyCreator solids will be exported as exact solids.

  • Volumes - When selected, solids will be exported as CATIA volume entities, sheet bodies will be exported as CATIA surfaces and wireframe geometry will be exported as CATIA curves.

  • Faces - When selected, solids and sheet bodies will be exported as CATIA surfaces and wireframe geometry will be exported as CATIA curves.

  • Curves - When selected, solids, sheet bodies and wireframe geometry will be exported as CATIA curves

  • Header Information

  • Author Name - Allows you to optionally enter an author name for the header of the CATIA file.

  • Model Name - Allows you to optionally enter a model name for the header of the CATIA file.

NOTE: Higher level geometry (e.g., solids) can be exported to lower level geometry (e.g., curves) but the reverse is not true.  For example, sheet bodies cannot be exported as volumes.

  • Export Planes and Vectors as Burst Wireframe Geometry - When selected, planes and vectors are exported as burst wireframe geometry.
