"Incomplete declaration" message during STEP conversion

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

During the conversion of a CATIA Model to STEP AP214 (CATST1 Utility) with CATIA Version 4.2.5, the following message appears in the CATIA Terminal window:

CATST1(I): 20052 Incomplete declaration file
Default: CATST1.CATIA.EXPORT_GVP = ' '

Although this message appears, the STEP file is created successfully.

Resolving the problem

Declare the following in USRENV.dcls (or customer equivalent):

CATST1.CATIA.EXPORT_GVP : LOGICAL;
CATST1.CATIA.EXPORT_GVP = FALSE ;

With this declaration, the message will no longer appear in the CATIA terminal window.
