Catia V5: Advanced Parametric and Hybrid 3D Design (Hardcover)
(This book cannot be returned nor exchanged.)
This tutorial textbook is an essential companion to using CATIA v5 to assist with computer-aided design. Using clear CAD examples, it demonstrates the various ways this versatile software has the potential to aid engineers in 3D modelling.Based on 20 years of teaching experience, the authors present methods of using CATIA v5 to model solid and surface parts, parametric and families of parts, reconstruction of surfaces, creation of macros, how to apply various tools and their options during the 3D modelling. Importantly, the book will also help readers to discover a lot of new modelling solutions and approaches to solve common issues within design engineering. With a comprehensive approach, the book is suitable for both beginners and those with a good grasp of CATIA v5. Including an end chapter with questions and solutions for self-assessment, the book will also include 3D modelling practice problems, presented in the form of 2D engineering drawings of many 3D parts in both orthogonal and isometric views. Using the knowledge gained through reading the book chapters, users will learn how to approach surfaces and solids as 3D models using CATIA v5. The book provides detailed explanations, using clear figures, annotations and links to video tutorials.
This book is the ideal companion for any student or engineer using CATIA v5, in industries including automotive, naval, aerospace and design engineering.
