Optimal CATIA PLM Usability for
Generative Shape Design

When working with ENOVIA V5, the safe save mode ensures that you only create data in CATIA that can be correctly saved in ENOVIA. Therefore, in interoperability mode, some CATIA V5 commands are grayed out / hidden in the Generative Shape Design workbench.

ENOVIA V5 offers two different storage modes: Workpackage (Document kept - Publications Exposed) and Explode (Document not kept).

  In Generative Shape Design workbench, when saving data into ENOVIA V5, the global transaction is guaranteed but only if the target is in Workpackage mode. All Generative Shape Design commands are thus available at all times in this mode.
To ensure seamless integration, you must have both a CATIA and ENOVIA session running.
