Hello board,

I just need to transfer a few points on one corner to another. Both curves have several radii, so the calculation using the radian dimension is not easily possible.

There is a "reference point" on both curves. All other points on this curve should be dimensioned from this point. The route remains the same on both curves.

To do this, I now have to measure the distance of the point to be moved on the "output curve" starting from the reference point. As a route on the curve.

Is there a function for this?

(The points on the first curve already exist).

Hi Daniel,

and welcome to the forum. Please fill in your system information, it is decisive which release the questioner is using.

So IMHO there is no separate function for this in CATIA. But you can create levels on the line (normal and by point) at the individual points and then "break up" the line with a split command at the individual points, then measure and transfer the length of the individual curves with the "caliper". Ev. I could also imagine a macro that then writes the results in Excel.

Hello D4NI3L,

if you create the points with "point on curve", you can do this simply with a formula:
The distance can be specified there geodetically (curve length). This gives you a parameter.
Now you can generate the geodetic length at the 2nd point using the formula:

Point2 \ length = point1 \ length

Hello everybody

This is my first post and already a question :-)

I have a similar problem, I would like to measure the neutral chamfer on a gasket so that it can be ordered correctly. Is there a way to measure the length of the curve in one go? The contour consists of a sketch that was then created with a rib.
