CATIA Version 5 Fundamentals

You will learn the fundamentals of CATIA V5 in the most commonly used workbenches including Sketcher, Part Design, Assembly Design, Wireframe and Surface Design and Drafting. Your primary emphasis in the course will be on solid modeling in V5 but you will gain an introduction to wireframe and surface modeling also


On successful completion, you will be able to create and manipulate a wide variety of profile-based solid features, apply complex dress-up features such as fillets and drafts, and perform feature patterning and other transformations. Instruction will include imposing design intent through smart modeling techniques, creating and manipulating product structures while performing assembly level design and producing drawings through generative drafting.

Who should take this course?
Design engineers, tooling engineers, manufacturing engineers and others needing to work with 3D data in CATIA V5.
