CADD-202 Catia Basic Modeling and Drafting I

Credits 4 / 6 Contact Hours
Pre-requisite: Placement into ACRD 080 ; Minimum 2.0 in CADD-120  
A class which introduces basic modeling applications with CATIA. Major topics to be covered include menu structure introduction to CATIA windows curve creation and editing fundamentals part file management preferences 2D and 3D model creation sketching solid modeling fundamentals and an introduction to CATIA drafting. This course will also cover basic parametric modeling techniques.

Course Outcomes
1. Identify the hardware and software structure of CATIA system including booting procedures, logon and logoff procedures, windows structure, saving files, etc. 2. Establish proper use of directory listings, manage files, list part files and manipulate views 3. Manipulate and position the work planes on part files 4. Create standard geometric entities such as lines, arcs, splines, polygons, fillets, chamfers, etc. 5. Edit lines, arcs, circles, etc. by trimming, extending, deleting, undoing, etc. 6. Translate scale, array, mirror and copy entities 7. Discuss and use basic sketching (parametric) techniques including the creation and constraint of sketch files and the development of expressions to control sketch entities 8. Develop parametric solid models utilizing primitives and other basic features such as holes, pads, bosses, etc. 9. Utilize extrusion techniques to create solids from 2-D curve geometry 10. Utilize analysis commands to obtain basic information concerning position, length, and volume within part drawing files 11. Establish layers for part files, move geometry from one layer to another and rename views 12. Identify and create basic drawings using CATIA drafting aids 13. Utilize preferences to change default settings of CATIA features 14. Utilize Assembly modeling applications
