CPD-to-ESI software module
CPD-to-ESI is an addition to CATIA CPD (Composites Part Design) workbench. It is a command tool developed by ESI Group, which is available directly in the CPD workbench through a dedicated icon in the toolbars.
This command tool allows you to transfer information seamlessly from CATIA CPD model to PAM-COMPOSITES.
This plug-in will generate an “xml” file that you can then import into PAM-COMPOSITES.
This import will retrieve from CATIA CPD:
- the geometry of each ply
- the stacking sequence
- the rosettes
- the defined thicknesses and ply orientations
The CPD-to-ESI plug-in saves you time during simulation modeling by retrieving information already available in the CATIA model.
