what happend to V4 area Law in V5 weep with AREA law not o be found please advise
V4 Area Law
The Area Law is there now... it's in Multi-Section surface under a specific tab. I think it appeared at R22.
Here's an extract from the R23 documentation:
"You can define and control the shape of a multi-sections surface between its sections. To create a multi-sections surface allowing an area law, the following inputs can be used:
- planar sections (with no tangency conditions)
- a spine (optional)
- a guide curve (either no guide curve, one or two guide curves)"
My memory of V4 is fading, but if you want to create a sweep with an area law, I think this needs to be done as a 'circle' type sweep, which you can do in V5 using the 'centre and radius' option. You could control the radius via a law and use a formula to derive the sweep radius from an area curve.
Hope this helps?
If you are still not seeing it adsplm, remember if you are running a PLM Express configuration of CATIA, you must have the GSD module (Part of the licencing) to see Area Law.
