Learning contents:

The participant will learn the following knowledge:    

  • Basics of CATIA V5 such as user interface, handling etc.
  • Production and processing of different model types
  • Production of casic geometries and parts
  • Generation of detailed drawings
  • Integration of partial solutions in modules
  • Working with constraints
  • Strength analysis with FEM
  • Kinematic simulation with DMU
  • Dealing with CATIA Knowledgeware


Learning targets:

Students are able to create their own 3D geometric models in the CAD system, to generate drawings due to the created geometry and then carry out FE-studies and kinematic simulations using the integrated CAE tools. With advanced, knowledge-based functionalities of CATIA the participants will learn to automate the creation of geometry and thus to ensure the reusability of the models.

Study requirements:

Dealing with technical drawings is required.
