Part thickness detecting


New member
How can i detect and highlight specified thickness of part?

For example, i want to find & highlight 6 mm thickness areas of part.

The Wall Thickness Analysis tool in CATIA will color-code the part based on wall thickness, if you have the right license. You can find more information about this tool on the Online Help: Analyzing Wall Thicknesses

Another solution is GeomCaliper, a third-party add-on app that works with CATIA.

There is also a Measure Thickness tool in CATIA that will show the wall thickness when the cursor is held over the part. Here's some info about it from Eng-Tips: http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=162339
