The Fitting Simulator workbench in CATIA V5 is a great tool to help create assembly or disassembly paths for parts to take within a product. However, being able to visibly see if the item interferes with other solid objects along the path is sometimes hard to detect. Follow our technical trainer in this short video demo as she steps through two methods to discover clash along a Fitting Simulator sequence: activating a clash experiment and utilizing clash modes (on/stop) .

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.
Here's another another way to save some mouse clicks and some time in CATIA.
Learn how to rotate a model in CATIA while keeping it centered on the screen.
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.
Have you ever struggled to see if something can be installed/disassembled in CATIA V5 after the fact? In this webcast, you'll learn to develop a track for the movement of a part or sub-assembly, detec
Utilizing the four output commands within the sketcher workbench will allow sketch entities to be segmented individually, allowing for quick creation of shapes. In this video,...
