Limitations and any prerequisites that and required to perform the processes Ì Detail any relevant CATSettings where applicable. Ì Describe the Rules.Introduction The purpose of this method is to: Ì Provide best practices for Viewing FTA information embedded in CATIA V4 model files. Ì Provide best practises for creating 2D generative drafting views using FTA information embedded in CATIA V4 model files. In this case. migrated data can be invalid. Version 4 data will be pasted to this existing annotation set. or split the Version 4 model in several Version 4 models. the Version 4 standard will be used. In the case of several Version 4 annotation sets within a Version 4 model. If there is no existing annotation set in Version 5. a Version 5 Functional Tolerancing & Annotation license is required. Version 4 Tolerancing data is migrated for parts only. containing each a single annotation set. a new annotation set will be created. You should paste the Version 4 annotation set at the level of the product containing the geometry. Version 4 Functional Dimensioning & Tolerancing windows are migrated as Version 5 captures 5 . and sometimes.FTA Migration Key Points Migration is performed using a Copy-Paste operation. make sure that the parent standard is the same in Version 4 as in Version 5. otherwise the copy will not be performed. Either FTA DT1 or FT1 Not all Version 4 data can be migrated to Version 5. In this case. If an annotation set already exists in Version 5. you will either need to merge FD&T data within a single Version 5 annotation set. not for assemblies.

When prompted enter the part number of the V4 model you are about to view. Insert the Existing V4 FTA Model into the Product by Right clicking on the Product – Components Existing Component – Browse and select the model 12 .g if the V4 model has a part number of “WG1509-0113-101-Support” you could use “WG1509-0113-101” in the product part number field but you cannot use “WG1509-0113-101-Support” 2.

You may encounter a “Partial Migration” Panel if some of the Data could not be migrated.

Repeat steps 7 thro 9 for the other Views until you have created them all NOTE: Remember these views may not be orthogonal as you can see below 19 . Appendix – 1 of 2 How to View FTA information that was not Migrated Ì Ì Ì When the *TOLx is pasted onto the top level product a message may appear informing the user of any FTA that could not be migrated. This NON migrated data is stored in a dedicated CAPTURE in the specification tree called “Non Migrated data of *TOLx” To View this Data Right Click on the Non Migrated Capture node and select “Display Capture” • In the example below it is the Chamfer Dimension that is not Migrated 20 . The missing annotations will need to be added manually using standard V5 drafting techniques 21 .Appendix – 2 of 2 How to View FTA information that was not Migrated Ì When the drawing is created the FTA that was not migrated will not appear in the views generate by the “View From 3D” function.
