|This tab deals with the following categories
These options are only useful for V4 to V5 Migration Batches, not with
interactive CATIA V5.
With the AS SPEC format, you can get the model's specifications in a first place and the geometry in a second place (after updating the document). Then you can modify the elements you have converted into CATIA V5.
The AS RESULT format allows you to migrate the V4 elements that cannot be converted AS SPEC. This operation is more efficient in terms of performance.
A CATPart by Geometric Set
If you check this option A CATPart by Geometric Set, the "V4 Part" definition is the Geometric Set. Therefore, the subsets will be migrated into a V5 CATPart document.
A CATPart by Solid
With this option A CATPart by Solid, the "V4 Part" definition can also be a Solid. The Solids will be migrated into CATParts and the non-solid elements (for instance: Wireframe) into another CATPart as well.
Convert SPACE / DRAW
If you choose this option Convert SPACE and DRAW, it means that you selecting the Migration of SPACE / DRAW data in Batch Mode.
According to its content, a model is migrated into several documents: a CATPart and / or a CATProduct and / or a CATDrawing. It is possible to separate the treatment of SPACE data and DRAW data. In the Batch window, there is an Options button giving you access to this Tools-Options window and you can choose between Space And Draw, Space, and Draw.
Some entities undergo a few changes during the V4 to V5 conversion:
In the Batch Mode, all Draw and Detail workspaces are migrated in CATIA V5. On the contrary, if you Copy / Paste a Draft or a View interactively, only referenced Details are migrated.
Convert SPACE only
There are 2 Part definitions; the migration of each Set respects the definition determined by the "V4 Part definition" a few lines above.
Every Workspace containing several Dittos or Set instances is converted as a CATProduct. Under this CATProduct, there are as many components as Dittos (Part or Product instances) and Sets.
The impacts of the V4 to V5 conversion on the entities:
Convert DRAW only
When a model contains DRAW data, they are migrated as a unique document: a CATDrawing.
Display Report Attribute
This functionality allows the visualization of 3D elements attributes in the Migration Report. For each element, the list of its attributes is displayed with the following data:
The CATV4ToV5Migration interface is unchanged.
The Report window displays attributes information.
|There are some limitations:
Initial Drawing Path
Select a .CATDrawing document which will serve as a template. The standard used by this document will be used during the migration. If you leave this field blank, the standard used by default during the migration will be the last one you used when creating a drawing.
The customer can use environment variables:
The user pre-defines an environment variable:
The name of the variable is chosen by the user.
|The user switches tab page or clicks OK. Then he comes back to the modified tab page: the path contains no environment variable anymore. Instead, the full expanded path appears on the tab page:|
Projection of Space for transparent views
Specify what kind of projection mode you want to use for transparent views during the migration:
|This functionality allows you to find pointed
entities in V4 Multi Model Links Solids and to retrieve associativity in
CATIA V5. You can store them in the following directories:
|When you migrate the pointing model, you need to know where the mapping table is, in order to retrieve the V5 entities.|
|The mapping table has the same name as the model; this is why it is important not to change the name of the mapping table. It is also not recommended to rename V5 documents otherwise you will not be able to find them in the next migrations, and therefore to recreate the V5 associativity.|
|If you cannot find the mapping table, a
Migration As Result will take place: first, the pointed models are migrated
and then the pointing models (asynchronous migration).
If you cannot find the pointed element, the link between the models cannot be reproduced.
Click Add repository to find the mapping table location. With the arrows (Up and Down), you can move in the list and with the rubber button, you can erase a file location.
|This option allows you to customize Applications' migration from CATIA V4 to CATIA V5. You can specify a particular behavior for this migration. You can choose how your applicative data will be migrated by writing source code (only two interfaces: CATIAecMigration and CATIE3DMigration) in this empty field.|
