CATIA V5 to 3DEXPERIENCE Transition: Creating a Revision from Saved As Geometry

When using CATIA V5, the 'Save As' option can be used for creating a copy of an object which can then be used independently from the original file, often to evaluate different options during the development process. Sometimes, it is desirable to use one of these 'saved as' objects as the next new revision of the original product.


1) Search for both parts in 3DEXPERIENCE



2) Open both parts in 3DEXPERIENCE



3) Modify the Saved As part as per requirements and Save
