CATIA PLM Weekly Email 0904 – How to create a Silhouette from 3D onto a Plane

Attn: CATIAHotline PLM’er,

Have you ever wanted to Project a 3D Image’s Silhouette to a plane? Well your prayers have been answered.

First you need the Part. I have a scoop of mint ice cream in a sugar cone. (Mint is the favorite in the Clark household, though I’m a Peanut Butter and Chocolate kinda guy)

Next we are going to select a plane to create a sketch on.

2

Then select the 3D Geometry Icon and then select the Project 3D Silhouette Edges Icon.

3

Go to town selecting the Surfaces you want to profile and that is it.

Bam that is it. Keep on keeping on
