How to restore a specification tree in Catia V5

By Jovan Zaturovski on 08 Apr 14:45 5 answers 0 comments

I tried to open a STL file with Catia V5, and the specification tree just disappeared.
I tried with the F3 button, tried to reset, but nothing works.
Can anyone help me?

    The problem with being able to turn on and off and manipulate the Spec Tree is this. Sometimes it just 'Disappears'. It is there but you can't see it or you have minimized it and it is out of reach. How do you fix it?

    There are a few ways to fix this.

    1. Make sure the Spec tree is on by selecting View -> Specifications and ensure that it is Checked On.

    2. If it is On try this. Make the Spec Tree active. To do this you will need to turn off the Geometry by selecting View -> Geometry. This will uncheck it. Then select 'Fit all In'. This should Bring the Spec Tree from the unknown.


    3. Same as 2 only select the XYZ Reference Axis in the lower right corner. This will under intensify your Geometry making the Spec Tree Active. Then select 'Fit all In'. This should Bring the Spec Tree from the unknown.

    Well for all those facing this problem just type "c:swap view/tree" in command center of catia(it is situated at right bottom of the screen)
    then the screen will turn dark.
    after that press fit in all command
    whoa there is your tree.
