Converting Google SketchUp Models into CAD Friendly Format

Converting Google SketchUp Models into CAD Friendly Format

In the past I’ve had the need to bring in some dummy resource geometry into my DELMIA simulation. Instead of spending time modeling it in a CAD program like CATIA, ProE, NX, or any other software, I always surf the web to see if someone has already done it. In this particular case I was looking for a CNC machine 3D model. Of course you can use this procedure for just about anything you find in Google SketchUp. If you haven’t...

Applying Material or Logo to 3D Geometry in V5

Applying Material or Logo to 3D Geometry in V5

The following is a tip for applying a jpg file to 3D geometry for visualization using Apply Material functionality. This is handy for visualizing a 2D layout on the factory floor or applying an image such as a logo to a vehicle. The next steps will guide you in creating an image for reuse within a DELMIA simulation. Open the following file where the DELMIA install directory is located \startup\materials\Catalog.CATMaterial file. You will...

Using Search Command to Hide or Show Multiple Items in Delmia V5

Using Search Command to Hide or Show Multiple Items in Delmia V5

Delmia has a search command that will allow you to search and select multiple items. This can be extremely useful for hiding and showing lots of items at once. In the following example we’ll use the command to hide all the planes in a specific product.  – When you translate an assembly from Pro/E into Delmia the resulting product may have all the planes for the individual parts showing. In most cases you will need to hide all...
