Hi Iam trying to make a side view of my modelled plane in catia and the software wont make the side view I need. It makes all the other views e.g. front etc but when it comes to the side view it comes up with 'view generation has failed' I looked on the internet and theres nothing really on how to resolve the problem

    from Tools menu select "Delete Useless Elements" to clear all geometry that is not used in the part design

    And then

    From File menu select "Desk" command
    a new window will appear
    right click on your part in this window and select "CATDUAV5"
    Check "Clean" and then press Run..this will clean the error "FGM_1"

    Worked for me :)
