The course will cover the following:

Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4
  • Use 3D reference Elements to create a part
  • Create advanced sketch-based features
  • Apply advanced dress-up features
  • Modelling using Boolean operations 

 

 

 

 

  • Share designs by working in multi-model environment
  • Analyse parts
  • Annotate parts for review
  • Create and reuse advanced replication tools like Power copies
  • Store components and Power copies into catalogue and reuse them in a new context

 

 

  • Modify CATIA options in order to optimise performance for large, complex designs
  • Manage contextual links between product documents by using publications
  • Create and use parameters to drive a product design

 

 

 

  • Create sections to visualise internal product structure
  • Create scenes and exploded views
  • Generate annotations and bills of material for assembly drawings
