How to generate points on a curve or an extracted edge in CATIA?

In order to use the model in simulation software, it is important to have the XYZ coordinates of the model. So is there a command that would generate the points on a curve automatically after solid or surface modelling

Accepted answer

There are commands to create a single point on a curve/line, or create multiple equidistant points on a curve/line.

But I don't know of a command to automatically create points at all the vertices of the entire model. Unless you or someone wrote a macro to do this.

Could you make a FEM mesh of the model and then extract the node points?

I'm surprised the Simulation software does not import the 3D model as a STEP or IGES format.
