The textbook covers all-important workbenches of CATIA V5R17 with a thorough explanation of all commands, options, and their applications to create real-world products. About 55 mechanical engineering industry examples are used as tutorials and an additional 35 as exercises to ensure that the user can relate their knowledge and understand the design techniques used in the industry to design a product. After reading the textbook, the user will be able to create solid parts, assemblies, drawing views with bill of materials, surface models, and Sheet metal components. Also, the user will learn the editing techniques that are essential to make a successful design. In this book, the author emphasizes on the solid modeling techniques that improve the productivity and efficiency of the user.Salient Features of the TextbookConsists of 15 chapters that are organized in a pedagogical sequence.
