Lesson 1 Introduction to CATIA V5
CATIA V5 is a powerful software package yet has a relatively short learning curve. Oneof the reasons for the short learning curve is that it is fully Windows compatible and the processes are consistent across the workbenches, toolbars and tools. If you learn thebasics of a particular workbench the same process can be used for more complex problems. Several tools are used in more than one workbench.The lessons in this workbook present basic real life design problems (when possible) andthe workbenches, toolbars, and tools required to solve the problem. The lessons presentthis information with step-by-step instructions. For every step there are numerous possible methods of accomplishing the same thing. The steps are to be used as guides tosolving the design problem. You are encouraged to try new and different methods, findthe method that works for you.This lesson provides a brief foundation about CATIA V5 to build upon in the followinglessons.
