In this post, we’ll look at a couple of ways to add threads to our 3D model, but we’ll primarily focus on manually building them.
For many reasons, it may be useful to scan an existing object to use in CATIA. For this post, we’ll take a high-level look at the general procedure.
What can we do when we know there’s a command we want in CATIA, we know the name of it, but we just can’t find it anywhere? Find out how to solve this problem in our blog post.
Here's another another way to save some mouse clicks and some time in CATIA.
Today we’re back in the Sketcher workbench. The plan is to create a Shaft so I’ve started drawing the sketch but the the line I’ve drawn needs to be an Axis instead of a standard line.
Learn how to rotate a model in CATIA while keeping it centered on the screen.
In this post we’ll look at how to create drawing views from lightweight CATIA files.
Let's look at a scenario that sometimes arises when using the “View from 3D” function in the Drafting workbench.
Measurements, by default, tend to take priority on the screen. If you create a measurement, it’ll “float” on top of any existing geometry. But if you want to turn it off, here's a quick tip to do that
Learn how with the Multi-Pad, you are able to draw all of the shapes in a single sketch and let them naturally snap to each other so it’s easier to build.
The CATIA Profile tool is a great way to draw a lot of connected lines and arcs all together. Having to pick the arcs from the Sketch Tools can get a little old.
Ever find yourself using the same command over and over and over? It’s kind of annoying to have to click the same icon so… many… times.
How to add dimensions in the Drafting workbench in CATIA
Here’s a pretty common scenario: You need to start a sketch for a part – maybe it’s a block – and to get everything nice and organized, you’ve got to center it.
The Split command is an essential tool when working with surface-based models in the Generative Shape Design and Wireframe and Surface Design workbenches.
Learn options in the CATIA Split command, see what they’re for, and see why you might use them.
By Scott Henderson You’ve built your surface and the hard work is done. The shape looks good. Every bend radius is correct and all of the fillets finally mesh well. There’s just one last step:...
By Scott Henderson Copying and pasting is a great way to reuse data and save some time. A simple right-click > Copy or a Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V is all it takes to get started. To make the best of these...
