With V2.0

Define 2 colors on the part: use the native colors from CATIA:

  • For inner parts:  Flat border faces in Yellow, Radius and rest in Green, then export as igs.
  • For outer parts: Flange and Radius in Red, and rest in Blue, then export as igs.

With V1.0

Define 3 colors on the part: use the native colors from CATIA V5: Flanges in Yellow, Radius in Blue, and Others in Green, then export as igs.


2/ In the Roll hemming meshing tool: select the igs file and click on the button Mesh (deltamesh licence is needed) 

Wait until mesh is finished

3/ A .fma file is generated with the same name as the igs used and in the same place as the igs file

4/ Import it in Pamstamp with import mesh by selecting the fma format type.
