To create a point on a curve in CATIA V5 is a pretty simple task. Things get complicated if we need to repeat it in VBA. Although most of the information you need you can find also in CATIA V5 documentation, the lack of examples is a real problem. I would like to try to fill this gap and show you some of the functions you can use when you work with CATIA curves. And because I like when things are moving, we create an animation :).
Clock animation in CATIA V5 drawing with VBA
If you want to create an animation in CATIA, most of the time you use a DMU Kinematics workbench. However, simple animations can be performed without any dedicated CATIA module, just with a plain VBA code. Moreover, you can use VBA across workbenches and Drafting workbench is not an exception. I am going to show you, how you can create a simple animation in a CATIA V5 drawing.
