Area Law with Multi-Section Surface

Sabrina posted this 09 December 2013

Hi there,

Just wondering, although it does not make sense in my head, can I use a non circular profile as part of a multi-section surface WHEN USING an area law (V5R22)?

I don't think you have to use a circular profile, but it is the easiest to understand. However, any law will have to specify area values that match each section area at their corresponding positions along the spine/guide curves (if that makes sense). The area law is there to give CATIA a 'rule' to follow in how it 'scales' the cross sections as they progress along the spine between each section.

Does this make sense?
