In this video, learn how Translate, Rotate, and Symmetry allow for the copying of data and reuse in different locations.
- [Instructor] And now I want to talk about transformations.…Hit the down arrow on our Transformations…and pull out the little toolbar…and the ones that I do want to discuss…are translate, rotate and symmetry.…Select on symmetry…and you can either use the reference document…that you downloaded…or you can select F1 on the keyboard…if you have the help docs,…download the Transform1 and open in your CATIA session…and get to it.…So, here we specify our element…for the symmetry…and the reference.…
We'll use my XY plane to symmetry that element…across the XY plane.…I'm just going to undo that.…So, it's pretty straightforward.…Again, symmetry, element or elements…that you want in symmetry,…pick your reference,…in this case I'll use the YZ plane this time…and across it goes.…Next, I'm going to talk about rotate.…Element that you want to rotate,…pick my surface,…specify your rotation axis…and how far do you want to go?…Select OK and there's my rotate.…
Just undo that,…go back into translate.…And with translate…again, specify the element you want to translate,…
