Creating a Louver

This task shows you how to create a louver by specifying the punch geometrical parameters.

Open the Stamping6.CATPart document from the samples directory.

  1. Click the Louver icon .

  1. Select Sketch-for-Louver, a profile previously defined on Wall.2. The Louver Definition dialog box opens, providing default values.

The louver opening face is represented in the sketch by the element that does not present any tangency continuity with the other lines/curve segments of the sketch. In case there are several non-continuous elements, the first one is used as the opening face.
  1. Change the value in the different fields, if needed:

  • Height H

  • Radius R1

  • Radius R2

  • Angle A1

  • Angle A2

  1. Click Apply to preview the louver.

  1. Click OK to validate.

    The louver (identified as is created and the specification tree is updated accordingly.

Check the No radius option to deactivate the Radius R1 and R2 values, and to create the louver stamp without a fillet.
