    • CATIA creates a reference point and locates both the reference point and the split point at the bundle segment end nearest your second selection.
    • Click Other Extremity in the dialog box to locate the reference point at the other end of the bundle segment.

  3. Move your cursor over the bundle segment to relocate the split point.
