Catia V5r20 Tutorial

This part can be done using the radius option in the profile command. You have already applied a constraint and may not even know it. When the sketch is done constrain it to double check that all the dimensions match the part shown above.

CATIA V5 Basic Tutorial

The entities will not move together. Once it is constrained to the dimensions above, go back and add in the radiuses using the Corner icon. Enter the Sketcher Work Bench. For this particular exercise check the Display option. In some cases optional processes will be explained.

You are encouraged to explore all the different options. If you want to constrain the location of an entity without constraining any other entity the Anchor tool is a good option. If your profile has entities created without relationship to other entities the Rewind button could result in a different profile than what you started with. It allows you to visualize without committing to a particular value.

Plane (Geometry)

Getting complete control of this tool will take some practice and patience. From the options on the left select Part, the tabbed options on the right change accordingly.

The lack of a shared point will make the entities unlinked. Double clicking on the Line icon still requires you to select a Start Point and an End Point every time, but you will not have select the Line icon for every line. You could also select the Measure.

The radius will have a green dimension with a value attached to it. Constraints are restrictions on one entity to another entity. The box will contain all the possible constraints but not all will be selectable. How do you modify a constraint? It gives you the opportunity to change the name of the constraint that shows up on the Specification Tree.

Notice as a particular plane is selected the equivalent plane in the Specification Tree is highlighted. To view and have access to all the tools you can select the shaded tab located at the top of each tool bar and drag it anywhere on the screen.

Following the step-by-step instructions there are twenty questions to help you review the major concepts covered in this lesson. This will bring up a pull down menu that includes all of the work benches. Each practice exercise has a suggested name to use when saving the exercise. The commands in this toolbar allow you to work in different modes which make sketching easier.

The Ok button will create a three dimensional part from your sketch. Sketch the profile of the part.

This deleting erase process is similar in all windows functions Select here and applies to any entity you want to delete as long as it is highlighted. Relationships between entities can also be established using this tool.

This will only create half of the arc needed, so the process will have to be repeated to sketch the other half of the arc. If the instructions were followed an over constrained condition will not exist. Accurately generated and easily modifiable graphical representation of the product. The concepts taught in these steps will give you the tools to navigate through the basics of the Sketcher Work Bench. While in the Sketcher Work Bench and using the mouse how would you move pan the profile around the screen?

To use the Sketcher Work Bench you must specify which plane the profile is to be created on. The Tools pop up window will also up date to prompt for the end point. This will link the two entities together.

If the default measurement is in metric the spacing will be in mm. The actual process of extruding a profile adds what branch to the Specification Tree? If you move the mouse to the top left quadrant you will notice the chamfer also moves to that quadrant.

It will highlight, now select the scissors located at the bottom left of the screen. Finish sketching the rest of the part. Referenced illustrations will be used to help explain certain processes and to compare results.

The individual tools found in each of the three Select arrow tool bars are labeled to the right of the tool icon. Nandivelugu Lalithya Karthikeya.

The pop up window gives you information on other entities the selected constraint is connected linked to. Specifying the plane can be done several different ways. Double click on the work bench you want to use, proxifier 3 in this case the Sketcher Work Bench. With that spacing all you have to do is snap to the intersections of the grid to sketch the part. What is the advantage of constraining a profile in the Sketcher Work Bench?

Unclosed profiles will be covered later in this lesson. Can one Sketch have more than one profile? The Animate Constraint window has other options that you can test. Notice the profile has a gap in it. Select the Profile icon from the right menu bar.

When the Snap To Point icon is off you must be careful when connecting one entity to another. Both entities must share the same common point. If it is not still highlighted, select the profile or select the Sketch branch from the Specification Tree.
