Trial Weekly Email 0601 – CATDUAV5

Attn: CATIAHotline PLM’er

In our pursuit to constantly meet or exceed our customer’s expectations, we are doing a trial of a weekly email for you, our valued customers. Each email will contain Tips and Techniques regarding your Dassault Systemes Software.

First Tip:


This is a tool that not many use to the extent it was created for. For those of you that used V4 this is the V5 equivalent of the /cln or CATCLN utility from V4. Dassault recommends running this:
before recovering external data
before going into a new CATIA Release
To ?recover? broken links when opening CATProduct incidents
when updating a component
many other uses …
So basically you should run this quite often. You can access CATDUAV5 from inside of CATIA, Select Tools -> Utilities then select CATDUAV5, or you can access it outside of CATIA by selecting START / All Programs / CATIA / Tools / Batch Management.

Please remember, we are here to support your installation, administration and usage of Dassault PLM products. Support Engineers for CATIA, Enovia DMU, Smarteam, and many other software products are available to assist you.
