CATIA V4 and CATPart to VRML Converter PDF Print E-mail

A CATPart to VRML Batchconverter:

The next example uses the \"CATIA V5 Interfaces Object Library\" to connect to CATIA V5, open a CATPart and export it to VRML. You can do that with other formats like IGES, STEP, ... too (if you have the licence).

You need Python and Pywin for this example and have also running CATIA V5:

 
# Demo for converting a CATPart to VRML
# Please start CATIA V5 before running this script
 
from win32com.client.dynamic import Dispatch
catapp = Dispatch("CATIA.Application")
catapp.Documents.Open("D:\work\Testmodell.CATPart")
catapp.ActiveDocument.ExportData('D:\work\Testmodell.wrl', 'wrl')

A CATIA V4 model to VRML Batchconverter:

You can`t do this interactive in CATIA V5 but with Python. Simply open a CATIA V4 model and export it to VRML (I did this with R14):

# Demo for converting a CATIA V4 model to VRML
# Please start CATIA V5 before running this script 
 
# Demo for converting a CATIA V4 model to VRML
# Please start CATIA V5 before running this script
from win32com.client.dynamic import Dispatch
catapp = Dispatch("CATIA.Application")
catapp.Documents.Open("D:\work\Testmodell.model")
catapp.ActiveDocument.ExportData('D:\work\Testmodell.wrl', 'wrl')

My prefered Python IDE

My prefered Python editor is Pyscripter from MMExperts. It is not only an editor. Pyscripter is a full Python IDE including (remote) debugging, a class browser, and all other nice helpers which a full featured IDE needs.

Do you have a script for me ?

Do you have an interesting Python script which does some really cool thing on Windows ? Please post them to this site. It`s very simple - simply copy&paste it to this form. No login is requiered.

Hint: For syntax highlighting and correct Python intendation place your code between html tags <pre> and </pre>.

My prefered web framework

My prefered web framework for developing web applications is Django. Django calls itself The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. It is a really fast, scalable and (thanks Python) the sexiest web framework of the world.
