CATIA Align Tutorials
Aligning A Cloud With A Cloud
This task shows you how to align a cloud of points with another cloud of points. If you want to align a cloud of points with points, use the Align with Points action.
Aligning A Cloud With Surfaces
This task shows you how to align a cloud of points with surfaces. Open the Reposition2.CATPart model from the samples directory.
Aligning Clouds With Constraints
This task shows you how to align a cloud of points with a target by defining constraints (made of pairs of points, lines or planes) based on canonic shapes (points, lines, planes, spheres, cylinders). When such shapes can be used, this kind of alignment is quicker than the other types (Align with Cloud, with Surface, with Points, with Spheres) proposed by V5. This operation is useful with mechanical shapes, where canonic shapes can be defined.
Merging/aligning Two Point Clouds (from Ibm Catia Help) Using Digital Shape Editor (swf)
See tip/tutorial link for description.
Use Align Transformation
This task shows you how to re-use a transformation already computed for a previous alignment of clouds (cloud to cloud, cloud to surface, clouds using spheres, ...). Open the Reposition1.CATPart model from the samples directory. Perform any kind of alignment.
Aligning Clouds Using Spheres
This task shows you how to align clouds of points to other clouds of points, using sphere recognition. Open the Reposition1.CATPart model the from the samples directory. It consists of two clouds of points with three spherical tags on each. These tags have been created during digitizing in order to align the two clouds in future operations.
Aligning A Cloud With Points
This task shows you how to align a cloud of points with CATIA points. If you want to align a cloud of points with another cloud of points, use the Align with Cloud action.
Tips To Align Clouds
This chapter lists a few tips to align a cloud with another cloud, or a cloud with surfaces. These recommendations apply to clouds or to a cloud and surfaces that have similar shapes, where the cloud to align will cover the other cloud or the surfaces.
