TOOL BARS IN SKETCHER WORK BENCH :

1)

PROFILE: Icons in profile tool bar are used to creat the geometrical sketches. downward arrows indicates the further option.

2) OPERATION : CORNER : Use to create blunt edges. CHAMFER: Use to create chopped edges with given inclination and with given two set backs. EXTEND &TRIM : Use to extend lines and trim the extra projected lines.

3) CONSTRAINTS : This is the option used to specify and fix the dimentions of sketches , it is compulsory for all the sketches. PROCEDURE: select the constraint option and specify the dimensions of the sketch , if sketch turns to green then it is constrained. If it shows pink then it is over constrained. after sketch is constrained selecting exit work bench to enter part design.

4) SKETCH TOOLS : In the fig. orange colour indicates function is on. In the sketch tools only geometrical, dimentional constrains should be on.

TRANSFORMATION FEATURES :

There are two types of pattern definations are there .. They are,

1) RECTANGULAR PATTERN 2) CIRCULAR PATTERN
The below two figures were represents the dialouge box for rectangluar pattern and circular pattern..By these two options we can able to get the pattern in rectangle and circular, by filling the required data.

SKETCH BASED FEATURES :

1) PAD

: Used to create the extruded part of a drawn sketch.

2) POCKET

: Used to create the cutout of any shape in an 3d image .

3) SHAFT

: Used to create a 3d image by using section of sketch. the 3d image of that Sketch should contain axis of symmetry. EX; SHAFT The following dialogue boxes shows shaft, pad and pocket definition.

4) GROOVE: Used to create groove along the 3D dia. 5) HOLE: To create the circular pockets. It is restricted for circular cutouts only. In this three headings are there, extrusion, type (i.e., tapered, simple, countersink, counter bored, etc.,), thread definition(if the hole is having threading). 6) SLOT: used to create the cutout of any drawn. The following dialogue boxes shows groove and hole definition.

INTRODUCTION TO CATIA
CATIA, stands for Computer Aided Three-dimensional Interactive Application, CATIA is the most powerful Knowledge based and widely used CAD (computer aided design) software of its kind in the world. CATIA has been created by Dassault Systems of France and is marketed &technicaly supported worldwide by IBM.

Where is CATIA used ?
CATIA is being used by designers, manufacturing facilit ies, assemblers, architects, industrial engineers etc. Have a Look around you. Everything and Anything you see had to be designed before manufacturing. The desk you are using, the chair you are sitting in, your daily use appliances, your car, your home etc. The list is almost endless. Nearly Everything is being designed on computers. CATIA plays a major role in the design process. CATIA is being used by the majority of automotive and aerospace industries for automobile and aircraft products and its auxil iaries and tooling design. Thousands of Engineering companies throughout the world over are using CATIA. A Company using CATIA has suppliers using CATIA too, thus making CATIA a Essential tool. The most commonly CATIA users are generally Aerospace, Applia nces, Architecture, Automotive, Construction, Consumer Goods, Electronics, Medical, Furniture, Machinery, Mold and Die, and Shipbuilding industries. CATIA has played a major role in NASA's design of the various Space equipments. Beside this CATIA has also been used as Vital tool for designing "jet -fighter" aircraft, aircraft carriers, helicopters, tanks and various other forms of weaponry extensively used by the Defense Sector. Catia is used throughout the North American and European continents, as well as Australia. Apart from this CATIA is increasingly being used by Asian countries like India, Japan etc. The following are just a few of the 20,000 + companies now using CATIA worldwide

Air Bus , Kelsey-Hayes , Boeing, Lear Jet , BMW, Volvo, Black and Decker, Fiat Peugeot, Northrop Grumman Corp, Ferrari, Lockheed Martin , Porsche , Daimler Chrysler, Goodyear, Freightliner Truck , Allied Signal , SauberFormula,Volkswagen, Pratt Whitney, United Airlines, Toyota, Hyundai , Ford, Mercedes-Benz , Honda

DRAFTING :

a) Open assembly work bench and drafting work bench b) Select any one of the view then use CTRL TAB to enter the assembly work bench, on moving to parts in right hand corner shows the view. c) Select the suitable view, then positioning on sheet select different planes. This procedure is same for all type of drafting.

Notable industries using CATIA
CATIA is widely used throughout the engineering industry, especially in the automotive and aerospace sectors. CATIA V4, CATIA V5, Pro/ENGINEER, NX (formerly Unigraphics), and SolidWorks are the dominant systems.

Aerospace
The Boeing Company used CATIA V3 to develop its 777 airliner, and is currently using CATIA V5 for the 787 series aircraft. They have employed the full range of DassaultSystemes' 3D PLM products ² CATIA, DELMIA, and ENOVIA LCA ² supplemented by Boeing developed applications.[8]The development of the Indian Light Combat Aircraft has been using CATIA V5. Chinese Xian JH-7A is the first aircraft developed by CATIA V5, when the design was completed on September 26, 2000.European aerospace giant Airbus has been using CATIA since 2001.[9] Canadian aircraft maker Bombardier Aerospace has done all of its aircraft design on CATIA. [10]The Brazilian aircraft company, EMBRAER, use Catia V4 and V5 to build all airplanes.Vought Aircraft Industries use CATIA V4 and V5 to produce its parts.The British Helicopter company, Westlands, use CATIA V4 and V5 to produce all their aircraft. Westlands is now part of an Italian company called Finmeccanica the joined company calls themselves AgustaWestland.The main supplier of helicopters to the U.S Military forces, Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., uses CATIA as well.

Automotive
Many automotive companies use CATIA to varying degrees, including BMW, Porsche, Daimler AG, Chrysler, Audi,[11] Volkswagen, Bentley Motors Limited, Volvo, Fiat, Benteler AG, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Renault, Toyota, Ford, Scania, Hyundai, koda Auto, Tesla Motors, Proton, Tata motors and Mahindra & Mahindra Limited, MLR motors, Hyderabad[International cars & motors ltd(Sonalikagroup,http://www.icml.co.in]. Goodyear uses it in making tires for automotive and aerospace and also uses a customized CATIA for its design and development. Many automotive companies use CATIA for car structures ² door beams, IP supports, bumper beams, roof rails, side rails, body components ² because CATIA is very good in surface creation and Computer representation of surfaces.

Shipbuilding
Dassault Systems has begun serving shipbuilders with CATIA V5 release 8, which includes special features useful to shipbuilders. GD Electric Boat used CATIA to design the latest fast attack submarine class for the United States Navy, the Virginia class.[12]Northrop Grumman Newport News also used CATIA to design the Gerald R. Ford class of supercarriers for the US Navy.[13]

Other
Architect Frank Gehry has used the software, through the C-Cubed Virtual Architecture company, now Virtual Build Team, to design his award-winning curvilinear buildings.[14] His technology arm, Gehry Technologies, has been developing software based on CATIA V5 named Digital Project.[15] Digital Project has been used to design buildings and has successfully completed a handful of projects.
