Constraints used for a sketch in CATIA

Only a precise 2D geometry will create a precise 3D component. To create a precise 2D sketch in CATIA, we use constraints. What  does “constraint” actually means? It means that we are restricting the degree of freedom of the sketch. Consider, you want to constraint a line.

Boolean Operations in CATIA

Here is a quick explanation about Boolean Operations in CATIA and how you can use it in your project. It is hard to do without these techniques and it is always recommended (to beginners) to know how to use them early enough. A Boolean operation is similar to

How to draw a Soap case – CATIA

Welcome to one more 3D exercise. We will be having fun learning how to draw a soap case in CATIA. This exercise is designed to help you learn new commands from Part Design.   Most time for beginners, its easy to test your CAD skill on things

Creating a 3D part in CATIA

After learning few important commands from Sketcher and Part Design workbench, we can now create a simple 3D part in CATIA. In this post the focus is learning how to use other commands like Hole, Edge Fillet. Here is the 3D object we will try replicating using

Sketcher Workbench in CATIA

This post is to illustrate some important commands and in Sketcher Workbench. You need to remember that a part always starts with a sketch. The simple exercise below will serve as the object of our tutorial. If you are rather an AutoCAD user, you will find these

Basic commands in CATIA

CATIA (Computer Aided Three-dimensional Interactive Application) is one amongst CAD software that was initially developed to help design aviation systems. It is today one of the leading CAD software in aviation and automobile industry. Here is a very basic “Demo” about Basic commands in CATIA. In this
