What are the functions of FORMTOOL in CATIA V5? Form tool allows performing semiautomatic filleting, trimming and breaking operation on a shape with sharp edges. Form tool creates surface, face and skin in a single interaction Skins are the main tool of the Form tool function since they allow us to combine faces and consider […]
What is model In CATIA V5? A Model is an individual drawing, read into main memory for interactive processing. Model can contain one or more workspaces which in turn can contain one or 4more sets with zero or more elements in each.
What are contextual menu and its applications? Clicking on a branch or feature displays the corresponding contextual menu. This tool help you get commonly used operations faster such as: Color: to change the color of the solid Parent: to manage the parents of the element Delete: to delete the element (=delete no keep) Break: to […]
What is the use of part Editor Window? Part editor allows visualization and real time modification of your designed part by selecting or directly acting on the feature structure of the part.
What is the difference between SURF1+GEOEXTR and LIMIT2 SURFACE EXTRAPOLATE? SURF1+GEOEXTR LIMIT2+SURFACE+EXTRAPOLATE Extrapolated surface will not be having the same deviation and degree of the original surface but is tangent only to the one side of the surface. (i.e., straight segment surface) Extrapolated surface will be having the same Shape, deviation and degree of original […]
What is the difference between SOLIDE+MODIFY+OPERATION+DUPLICATE and TRANSFORM+SYMMETRY? The first difference between these two operations is that with the SOLIDE+ MODIFY+OPERATION, you must first indicate whether or not this is going to be duplication or replacement. The second major difference between TRANSFORM and MODIFY+OPERATION+DUPLICATE is that transform keeps a link between the originating primitives where […]
What is the difference between PRIMITIVE and FEATURE? PRIMITIVE: It is generally the simplest solid elements that can be create. The three types of primitives are: 1) Canonical Primitives: Defined by geometric values: Parallelepiped Cylinder Cone Sphere Torus Defined by contour and geometry values: Revolution: elements obtained by rotating an open or Closed profile about […]
CATIA V5 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS What is the difference between SOLID EXACT and SOLID MOCK-UP? SL. NO. SOLID EXACT SOLID MOCK-UP 1 Exact solids manipulate an exact type, that is, a non-approximated boundary representation. Mock-up solids manipulate an approximated type B-Rep, that is, a representation resulting from an approximation of the non-planar […]
CATIA V5 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS What are the relations b/w SURFACE, FACE, SKIN and VOLUME? SURFACE: A Surface is an infinitely thin, mathematically defined contoured area in space .It is displayed visually by isoperimetric curves and boundary curves. In simple terms a surface is an entity that has length and width, but essentially no thickness. […]
CATIA V5 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS What is CATIA? What are the different modules of CATIA? What are the main Features of CATIA? CATIA: Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Applications. It is used to create three-dimensional geometric models using wire frame, surface and solid modeling constructions. Additional application modules incorporated with CATIA provide Capabilities for: […]
