Accurately Communicate Your Designs with CATIA Drawings


CATIA V5 Drawings training course

3D Models are usually documented in two-dimensional drawings. With CATIA, you can take your 3D Models and convert them into the 2D drawing format used throughout the manufacturing process.

Our CATIA Drawings course will show you how to accurately communicate your designs to manufacturing by creating drawing views, customizing your view options, and using a variety of dimensioning tools.

CATIA Drawing Tutorial – Introduction to CATIA V5 Drawings

To draw attention to obscure features of your model or emphasize significant ones, you need to be able to show your design from various perspectives. You’ll learn how to create views that allow you to isolate and enlarge specific features of your model. Once created, you can customize your views to adjust the positioning, scale, and coloring of your model to suit the needs of your intended audience.
