Defining rough stock in CATIA Lathe Module

Hi all! Greeting from Portugal!

I am a Mechanical Engineering Student and currently I'm learning using Catia V5 in terms of CAM. I have no problems about CAD in CATIA as I had already learned CAD in Solidworks. It's quite similar!

Although now I'm trying to use Catia Lathe module, and my first trouble is about defining the rough stock. I already searched for tutorials/manuals but strangely they only show how to select a rough stock. I didn't find one explaining how to create it.

So, somebody know how can I specify the diameter and lengh of the rough stock? Where is that option?

I aprreciate your help!

Best regards

David Nelson
