CATIA plugin (official thread)


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · CATIA plugin (official thread)

A new plugin is joining the plugin family!

The CATIA plugin comes basically with the features you know from the others (if you had a chance to use them before).[1]

 

The plugin can be easily downloaded and installed on my website.

You can find a very basic checklist of what needs to be done here:

Enjoy and happy designing!

    ok i have found the solution

     

    i think that the plugin in compatible with cura 4.4 max

     

    the last version is done for sdk 7.00

    https://git.thopiekar.eu/Cura/CAD/CuraCatiaPlugin/-/tags

     

    and the sdk for cura 4.5 is = sdk7.1.0

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/CuraAPI-and-SDK-Versions

     

    but when i start the version for cura 4.4 i have some trouble = no com between catia and CUI module

     

    i have tried nodelock  management from catia to have a local licence but no effect

     

    i am suprised because during installation of this plugin, there is no compatibility version of catia

     

    and for using catia since a long time, i know that version are very different, and scripts or macros in one version of catia are not fully comptaible with the new one.

     

    i try the com between cura v4.4 and catia v5-6 Buid number 25 SP3

     

    best regards

    Hello @thopiekar,

    As a 3D Experience user, I am quite interested in your plugin as it might capture some features of CATPARTS that are not transferred through STL.

    I tried installing it via the marketplace: after adding and installing it, Cura asks for a restart (perfectly normal). On startup, it then crashes during the plugin loading. I tried that several times on a fresh Cura 4.6.1 install with no success.

    Is this due to some changes with Cura 4.6?

    Have a good evening/day!

    Hello Mischa,

     

    sorry for the late reply. I have missed your message in my busy inbox.

    Is this problem reproducible? So, does it happen every time? 🙂

    Hi Thomas,

     

    No worries, I mean your doing this for the community I could hardly blame you for not responding fast enough ^_^

     

    Si basically yes, if you install the plugin, then start Cura while having the 3d expérience open, it will not open the 3d link window that allows you to attach your 3d expérience session to Cura, and it will crash in the Cura Plugin loading.

    I did not test to attach the 3d expérience session then close Cura, open 3dexp and reopen Cura, that might work, not sure... At the moment I have the plugin removed as I do not import anything from 3d exp for now, but I'll have a look if I have time.

     

    Have a good weekend!

     

    Mischa
