Creating an ITP

This task shows how to create an Imposed Thickness Point, that is a connection point between transition zones, and zones on which you want to impose a thickness.

Available in Composites Engineering Design (CPE).
Open the ITP1.CATPart document.
  1. Click the ITP icon .
    The ITP Creation dialog box is displayed.

  2. Select the zone group in which you want to create the ITPs.

  3. Select a vertex as thickness point.

  4. Define the thickness of the point using the spinners.

  5. Click OK to create the ITP.

  6. Perform this scenario as many times as you need to create ITPs.
    In our example, we created four ITPs in Zones Group.1.

Should you need to create the point for the vertex, right-click in the vertex field and create the element you need.
