Using the CATDUA V5

The CATDUA V5 tool allows you to have a support for CATIA level changes, to make a diagnostic and eventually a healing of CATIA Version 5 data. If some return codes are detected within CATIA elements, it is advisable to run the CATDUA V5 utility on these documents in order to check and / or clean them. And for better performances, the versions of CATDUA and CATIA should be the same.

The CATDUA V5 is useful when:

  • (before) recovering external data,
  • editing an existing document in a new CATIA release,
  • broken links at opening CATProducts,
  • incidents for updating a component (for instance, Sketch update),
  • the Edit-Links window appears: some documents are found without any references,
  • performance problems for opening a document (because some elements have lost their links).

The CATDUA V5 is also available from ENOVIA DMU.

Bear in mind that appropriate licenses are required to be able to access documents in ENOVIA LCA and ENOVIA VPM.
For instance, if you do not have the license required for using VPM Navigator, you will not be able to select the ENOVIA LCA type.
For ENOVIA DMU, the CATDUA V5 is P2 only.
The following tasks explain you how to launch the CATDUA V5 in interactive mode or in batch mode, how to visualize the report of the check / clean execution and lastly, how to interpret the return codes that can be detected by this tool.
