Modeling a helical stairs using CATIA V5

Repetitive tasks made easy with loops in CATIA V5. Let’s see how.

Loops in CATIA help you create multiple instances of a feature faster and quicker. You only need to provide required input elements and that’s it. Knowledgeware capabilities of CATIA has made selection of no. of elements even easier with tools like List. Select a bunch of elements, say Points, in their order to be used while instantiation of a feature(s), and the software automatically selects them while iterating.

I’ve made a simple and effective example to explain how does this work. The image below shows what we’re going to obtain in the end.
