Hello,

I am creating a catalog for CNC cutting tools in CATIA V5. I have created a tool of type MfgSquareInsert and entered the following info on a csv file

1)

ENDCHAPTER NC TOOLS
Keywords MFG_NAME_BAS MFG_NAME MFG_TOOL_NUMBER MFG_INSCRIB_DIAM MFG_INSERT_LGTH MFG_INSERT_THICK MFG_NOSE_RADIUS
Types String String Integer LENGTH LENGTH LENGTH LENGTH
MfgSquareInsert My_Name 1 4in 4in 2in 2in

C:\Data\Part1.CATPart (The location the 3d representation is located on my machine)

2) I use the script provided on the CATIA help documentation to create the catalog and it seems to work.
3) The square tool wiill ne used for inspection only
4) When I open CATIA and I search for the tool in the advanced machinng workbench, I find the catalog created above but the tool can not be found

What am I doing wrong here? Please help!!

Rogerio,

I don't have any experience with NC tools and how to build a catalog. I suggest you post your question on the COE Discussion Forum. There is a very active MFG forum there just for NC questions like yours.

I have been using the COE website for a long time, and it appears they have changed their policy. I apologize in advance if I posted the wrong information.

It does appear that you must be a paying member in order to post in the COE forum. However, there is also an "Academia" membership that might work for you, Rogerio, since you are a student.

I didn't find any information about membership cost.

I will try to contact the COE headquarters to get a better understanding of their current policy.

Alright, thanks a lot for you help!

Here's the response from COE when I asked them if Forum users had to pay:

"They do NOT have to be a paying member for the Forums. They do have to register (it helps keep out the spam).

"They do need to be a paying member to access premium content such as the Ask The Expert Webinars, Conference Proceedings, etc."


Try the COE registration process again, and ask your catalog question in the MFG forum. There are several users who will be glad to help you.
