To obtain Radius/Diameter option

9 December 2009

Do you know how to get radius or diameter dimensional constraint in Catia (part design)?

Before you creating shaft and groove in part design, axis is necessary to be created to obtain the radius or diameter dimensional constraint. Sometimes most of the beginner user face problem in obtaining radius or diameter dimensioning when the dimensioning between the edges and construction line is selected not axis line. In addition, although the construction line and axis line can be the axis rotation of the shaft or groove functions, but axis line is necessary to be constructed again to get the radius or diameter option.

In conclusion, axis of the rotation in part design must be created before implementing shaft and groove functions to obtain Radius/Diameter option in dimensional constraints. Let’s try!-)
