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.

You must have seen an animation being played while a video on web is being loaded, commonly referred to as buffering. We’re going to create that in CATIA V5!
So let’s roll!
We’re going to create that in CATIA V5 using very few simple tricks. I’ve provided a link below to download the tutorial. It’s a .rar document, uncompress it anyhow you chose. It includes an executable file named ‘Buffering…animation.exe’, simply start it to go through the tutorial.
You’ll need a .pdf document reader and a media player, which I assume all of you do. Just as a preview of what we’re going to obtain, here is an image…
Reference documents are given in a folder named ‘Ref. documents’.
(Download the ‘Buffering…animation.rar’ document from the folder)
You can create more than one guide curves, even profiles in a single sketch.
I am referring here features which support selection of two or more guides and/or profiles (solid modeling or surface modeling). Let’s have a look at an example.
