Course Detail: CAT1 - CATIA V5 Introduction to Solid and Assembly Modeling

Course description: This course emphasizes design and model interrogation of products based on 3-D solid feature-based modeling using Catia V5. It covers sketching (using 2-D curves to create 3-D models), various modeling and interrogation and analysis methods, and introductory assembly modeling and drafting with 3-D models. Different geometric modeling methods and the impact of 3-D solid models on manufacturing will be briefly discussed. Software Catia V5 is used in order to practice lecture materials with various hands-on modeling and assembly projects including ones for automobile and aircraft industries. This course is application-oriented. 3-credits.

 Projects: Students will engage in various projects throughout the course. One of key projects is to build a small engine assembly. This requires students to build 3-D models for components with various geometric shapes and to assemble them into the initial assembly model. Then students will improve this initial assembly model and create new versions of the models by interrogating, analyzing, and updating designs with proper application of parametric and associative modeling concepts. In order to complete these, students have to understand lecture materials covered in class and apply them properly.
